Gary Clark Jr.’s abilities to seamlessly blend blues, rock, and R&B has made him a modern-day icon—and four-time Grammy winner. On his new album, JPEG RAW, he widens the scope even more. The singer and guitarist draws inspiration from blues singer Sonny Boy Williamson and jazz pianist Thelonious Monk. He’s bringing together flourishes from African music with jazz and other sounds from around the world. And he’s got a lot to say, not just singing but rapping and delivering his socially conscious and deeply personal lyrics in spoken word—all atop groove-oriented psychedelia with hip-hop beats, anthemic choruses, and fuzz guitar.
Trailblazing husband-and-wife duo Michael Trotter Jr. and Tanya Trotter expand their borders with their intimate songwriting. Combining blues, soul, R&B, gospel, country, and more, they dig into into the lessons their love has taught them, bringing it all to bear with a revival-like intensity that’s made their live shows can’t-miss events around the world.
