Gary Clark Jr. – Blak And Blu


Gary Lee Clark Jr. is an American musician from Austin, Texas. He is best known for his fusion of blues, rock and soul music with elements of hip hop. Throughout his career Clark has been a prolific live performer, and has shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, B.B. King and the Rolling Stones, among others. As of 2020, Clark has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, and has won four of them. Blak and Blu is his major-label debut studio album, released on October 22, 2012. The album touches on a wide variety of traditionally black music genres, including soul, hip-hop/R&B, Chuck Berry-esque rock and roll, and Clark’s trademark, blues. Blak and Blu netted Clark his first two Grammy Award nominations, one for Best Rock Song (“Ain’t Messin Round”) and the other for Best Traditional R&B Performance (“Please Come Home”) which won. This marked the first time that an artist was nominated in both categories in the same year.
