Before Game 4 on Monday, June 3, Clark Jr. will give a live performance on Market Street, followed by a public viewing of the game. His latest album, THIS LAND, is his third studio album for Warner Records. Rarely has an artist combined the sounds of the great music forms; rock, hip-hop, blues, and soul into one genre-defying statement of unique power, craft and social significance, as Clark has done on his recent album, THIS LAND. His previous albums with WB Records, Story of Sonny Slim in 2015 and 2012's debut album, Blak And Blu, were critically acclaimed, with Clark Jr. earning his first Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track, "Please Come Home" from Blak And Blu. Clark transcends sound, style, and genre; witnessed by his performances on the world stage from multiple Grammy performances to Lollapalooza, to Jay Z's Made In America, to Bonnaroo and many more. In addition, Clark has been tapped to collaborate with titans from all genres of music ranging from Childish Gambino, Prince, Beyonce, Dave Matthews; the Foo Fighters, Alicia Keys, Rolling Stones, Tom Petty, Ed Sheeran, Eric Clapton, Keith Urban and many others.
