Clark is an Austin musician who has been making his mark in the Texas music scene since his early teenage years. In 2010, he was selected personally by Eric Clapton to perform alongside Doyle Bramhall II and Sheryl Crow in the Crossroads Guitar Festival. This huge gig led him into signing with Warner Bros. Records and brought him into working on his first album which will drop in September 11th.
