Who would have thought that listening to the blues can make you feel happy?
This can be said for W.C. Clark's music which is described as soul cleansing blues. Listening to Clark's music is an enlightening experience, that makes you feel baptized and born again after just one listen.
Clark combines the blues with rock 'n' roll, funk, ragtime and big band styles. He is BB King, Ray Charles, Chuck Barry and Muddy Waters all rolled into one, combined with his own unique style of Austin Blues.
After 40 years of playing the blues, Clark has learned a thing or two about his craft, mixing Texas-blues and Memphis-style soul.
His new album From Austin with Soul is a combination of feel-good rhythms and profound, heart breaking yet promising lyrics.
Witness the magic for yourself at El Rey Theater at 8 p.m. Tickets are $16 in advance and $18 at the door.
