Greg Clark, Jr.
Being a young drummer covering all
the bases means staying on the move, playing all the styles and plugging
into the music scene on all fronts. Greg Clark brings that energy to every
aspect of his music career. He’s performed and recorded with a full spectrum
of outstanding musicians including Amos Saint Jean, bassist Gary Grainger,
guitarist Sam Gunderson, R&B artist Jamie Jones, CMT finalist Ashley Glasgow,
Christian artists Jonathan Nelson and Isaiah Thomas, and bands from rock
(Zachary J Band)
to R&B (Spur of the Moment).
He’s also appeared at the 2009 Capitol Jazz Festival with artist Rahsaan
Patterson, and regularly at Evangelical Cathedral. Greg seems to be playing
at every turn, in every venue, with every type of music – and as a left-handed
drummer, that’s not always easy, often calling for adapting to right-handed
kit setups at a moment’s notice. In 2010, he appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live
and toured the
US and Europe
backing R&B artist Raheem Devaughn. During the past few years, he's been performing often with Snarky Puppy and making appearances as a clinician. You can find him
the top 500 drummers by Drummerworld.
We admire Greg’s energy, his passion for music and his dedication to
constant learning. He’s one of those talented musicians who just plain loves
to play, any place, any time, any style. It’s the kind of attitude that
we think distinguishes the performers who will go farther than talent alone
can take them -- an attitude we're sure will keep Greg in forward motion
his whole career.
