Gary Clark Jr. is a name you will be getting familiar with much sooner than later. The 26 year-old singer/songwriter/guitarist had a showcase in NYC at The Darby that brought out Q-Tip & ?uestlove (who both served as hosts), Swizz Beatz, Pharrell Williams and even Leonardo DiCaprio (who will be seen in the forthcoming Django Unchained with Jaime Foxx).
Lyor Cohen himself intro’d Clark at the showcase, meaning Warner Bros. is clearly pressing the button behind this soulful Blues and Hip-Hop influenced Austin native. Peep video of the showcase below and photos from the night’s festivities in the gallery.
