This music you hear on Gary Clark Jr’s new album, The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim, is the pure and unadulterated distillation of a young artist simply telling the truth the only way he knows how. He does so with just the basic, simple tools of the trade: voice, guitar, rhythm and song. When combined in his own unique way, his thoughts and fingers, rhythms and vocals chords create and equate to a fully-formed and complete artistic vision. Whatever it is he’s doing, it feels like everything we know and love about all music recombined into one new yet familiar thing all its own. Surely he’s a cat with a Maximum R’n’R/R&B heart with a very Heavy Soul.
