Gary Clark Jr.’s Swampy Growling to a Falsetto Voice Rounded Out the Show
Among those are straight up rock, blues, R&B, soul, and psychedelia to name a few. A visit to his website reveals Gary stating: “I listen to everything…so I want to play everything.” And that sentiment was on full display on Sunday night. Known and admired for his abilities on guitar, his vocals and song writing abilities are not to be overlooked. Throughout the night he and the band covered terrain from fat, swampy growling tunes to delicate soulful falsetto voiced numbers that reached deep to your romantic side with many points in between.
Opening for Gary were folk singer and song writer Greg Holden followed by the band Houndmouth, who rounded out the evening.
