"The John Clark Band CD Release Party"

“Elder local statesman of folk rock and Tre Amici favorite John Clark is joined by his full band (lead guitarist Christian Ystrom, drummer Bill LaGrandier and bass player Jason Hawks) at this release party. The foursome plays a new eponymous EP in its entirety, including slide-drenched Southern rock odes like “Hairless Monkey” and “Dark Natured,” Clark’s rusted tin vocals carrying overtop. Also with: The Laurentians and Dumb Blind Luck — Leilani Polk”

"An Anthem For Our Times"

"John Clark has written an anthem for our times. It's as passionate, soulful and bold as ever an anthem was written. The further fact that the writer is so humble a person is all the evidence you need that 'faith is in the work!'" ~ Michelle Shocked "
