Guitarist Gary Clark Jr. from Austin, Texas, has been called the saviour of blues.
He plays a combination of blues, rock, R&B and soul. Some compare him to Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, others to Lenny Kravitz and John Lee Hooker. Gary Clark Jr. has received a number of awards in his Texan hometown, including Austin’s Best Blues Musician, Best Blues Band, Best Blues Artist and Best Electric Guitarist. Rolling Stone Magazine calls him "the best young gun". Not bad for someone who has yet to turn 30! 21. February 2012 he performed the Muddy Waters classic Catfish Blues in the White House for Barack Obama, and on the 18th of July you can experience him live at Romsdalsmuseet when he plays Norway for the first time!
