Gary Clark, Jr. will open for Eric Clapton next month in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Gary's major label debut, The Bright Lights, was released by Warner Brothers Records in August and garnered 4 Stars from Rolling Stone. The magazine also named him "the best young gun". Gary's live performances, as well as recordings, blend rock, soul and blues, infusing fluid guitar with a guttural howl and a falsetto trill that mix together. Despite his roots, Gary definitely comes across as someone who is forging something unique in the music world.
