29-year old Gary Clark Jr. may seem young to be a Grammy-nominated blues artist – and he is – but the Austin, Texas, native has been winning awards for his stellar blues guitar playing for most of his life.

We were lucky to have Gary Clark Jr. perform a solo set at KEXP about a year and a half ago (watch it here), but this time he brought the whole band for this powerful set of Texas blues live in our studio:
