It’s been a long time since I’ve sent anything out on the mailing list, but that doesn't mean things have been slow over these many months.
I’m proud to announce that my new album, “Working on Engines” is available. The 12 tracks feature the full sound of my electric band with several rockers, a few country songs, and even a couple of cajun grooves. Response has been great from listeners, local radio and the press! Check out these reviews and interviews:
This all-Knoxville, TN band features Nate Barrett on drums and Chris Zuhr on bass. Barry “Po” Hannah and I played the guitars, with a special guest appearance by Tim Lee on electric 12 string. I also played some fiddle, electric mandolin and lap steel. We recorded the basic tracks with John Harvey and Mary Podio of Austin's Top Hat Recording, who recently transplanted their studios to Knoxville.
We had a great time at our CD release show in July, and will continue rolling the album out to new communities through the year.

New Jay Clark CD: Of Mountains and Heartbreak
is one of our great East Tennessee songwriters and storytellers. I’ve been playing with Jay for a few years now (along with upright bassist Daniel Kimbro, as the Tennessee Tree Beavers). Earlier this summer Jay released his new album, “Of Mountains and Heartbreak.” Jay, Daniel and I recorded it in the winter and spring at Thomm Jutz’s studio near Nashville. Thomm is an amazing acoustic guitarist and the four of us had a great time playing Jay’s new songs into the microphones. We’re all so proud of this record and I hope you’ll check it out. The songs all come from a love of the outdoors, outrage at the destruction of the mountains, and love of family and friends.

Prison Break-In film now on iTunes!
“Prison Break-In” is a feature length film I worked on in 2014 (and is neither a “prison movie” or a “crime drama," so...) It’s a heartfelt charmer filmed in Knoxville and directed by my friend Amy Hubbard. It features lots of Knoxville music. I wrote and played the instrumental score and contributed two songs, along with songs by pals Jeff Barbra, Tim Lee 3, Hudson K, Barstool Romeos, Bus Driver Tour and more. The film just became available to rent or buy on iTunes, click here
Crown Guitar Workshop & Festival
At the end of August, I’ll be teaching a week-long songwriting workshop at the Crown Guitar Festival and Workshop
in Montana. The event is held on Flathead lake in Bigfork, one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen. There are workshops offered in all styles of guitar playing, with great guest artists and a top notch faculty. My class will also be joined by rock and roll legend Jim Messina and touring singer-songwriter Liz Longley.
