BRYAN CLARK INTERVIEW #1
(Originally aired on October 1, 2009)
Bryan Clark is both an ace multi-instrumentalist (he plays guitar, Dobro, keyboards, steel, bass and percussion) and gifted songwriter. His musical palette encompasses jazz, bluegrass, rock, orchestral strings and Texas swing, and his lyrics reflect a deep appreciation for storytellers Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt. Clark has performed with Bonnie Raitt, Lisa Loeb and Larry Carlton, and his film and TV credits include America’s Next Top Model, Project Runway, VH1, FOX, ESPN and Oxygen.
In our exclusive interview, Clark talks about recording Gossip, Inspiration and Slander, his 2009 two-disc album that covers musical terrain from hot bluegrass flatpicking to swampy rock to atmospheric instrumentals. We'll hear tracks from this compelling collection and stories behind several songs.
