Gary Clark Jr. Wins Grammy Award for “Best Traditional R&B Performance”

LETTERMAN APPEARANCE CONFIRMED FOR FEBRUARY 17TH

TOUR WITH KINGS OF LEON TO BEGIN NEXT MONTH

Singer, songwriter, and guitarist extraordinaire Gary Clark Jr. won a 2014 Grammy Award last night for “Best Traditional R&B Performance” for “Please Come Home.” The song appears on Clark’s debut album for Warner Bros. Records, Blak And Blu. This is the Austin native’s first Grammy Award. Originally nominated in two categories: “Best Rock Song” for “Ain’t Messin ‘Round,”  as well as “Best Traditional R&B Performance” – “Please Come Home,” this marks the first time in Grammy history that a single artist has been nominated in two different genre categories simultaneously from one album in the same year.

 

In addition, Clark turned in an incendiary performance with Keith Urban on the live Grammy broadcast trading lead vocals and guitar solos on Urban’s “Cop Car”, from his current album.

 

In October 2012, Clark released Blak And Blu, which debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart at No. 6 and received raves from many major music outlets, including The New York Times, which called Clark “a guitarist of deep magnetism and tremendous feel,” and Spin, which declared: “There truly is nobody else like him around.”  Rolling Stone recently dubbed Clark as “The Chosen One”. Click here to view Clark’s road to the Grammy’s.

Smoke & Jackal’s music video for new single “No Tell” premiered today: Already banned on YouTube?

Smoke & Jackal, the side project of Jared Followill from Kings of Leon and Nick Brown from Mona, posted a video today via their fan email. The video was directed and produced by photographer David Black who has worked with the likes of Best Coast, Cat Power and Ryan Adams. Unfortunately, when you click to view the video, YouTube states that the video has been taken down because it violates their policies? Vevo does not seem to have the same problems. Hmm…check it out here and maybe you can figure out why: http://vevo.ly/Pp3k3w

Smoke & Jackal have recorded an EP entitled,EP1 and it is a 6-track collection of songs that Jared and Nick began recording in Nashville earlier this year, fueled by multiple bottles of red wine and a shared fascination with timbre, rhythm, and aural adventure.

EP1 will be available on October 16th.
