Military brat who sings the blues
That is how I first found Lawrence J. Clark. He has been performing for over twenty years, yet I had not heard anything by or about him until I noticed the credits on his New Horizon CD. A few names caught my eye, but it was Ruthie Foster's name that really piqued my interest. I ordered the CD expecting some great blues, which New Horizon does have, but that was just the start. The son of a U.S. Air Force seargent, Lawrence J. Clark has been on the move most of his life and that gypsy lifestyle has exposed him to a wide variety of musical styles. First off, he is a singer/songwriter in the folk tradition, but as any musician who wants to continue eating and housing him or herself knows, one has to be able to play to a wider audience. Lawrence J. Clark has done a mighty fine job of playing a variety of styles, and playing them well.
Now based out of the Houston, Texas area, Clark has several CDs available and is currently working on a new CD and a book of poetry. Visit his website for more info, also visit this link for his biography and a few audio and video clips.
Lawrence J. Clark's CDs are available directly from his website or at CD Baby.
