Fletcher Clark

Characterized as old school Austin troubadour by music writer Ronnie Narmour, Fletcher Clark’s songwriting is influenced by the Texas singer-songwriters for whom he has been sideman or producer, as well as by his love of jazz, Broadway, Tin Pan Alley, blues, R&B, rock, folk, bluegrass, C&W, latin, etc. He is also influenced by his long-time involvement with the Kerrville Folk Festival. In the 1970’s, his Texas show band, Balcones Fault, brought all these musics together for scores of sold-out shows at Austin’s legendary Armadillo World Headquarters (for which he was VP of Marketing). In 2010, Fletcher brought Armadillo Records and Armadillo Music (ASCAP) back to life by recording Hank & Shaidri Alrich for their critically acclaimed CD 'Carry Me Home'. Then Fletcher produced 'TAKING TURNS' for Armadillo Records, a collection of twelve of his original songs recorded by twelve different artists and ensembles, using Austin’s best session players, engineers, and studios. As a showroom for his songwriting and producing skills, Executive Producer Hank Alrich said“There’s just not been another project like Fletcher Clark’s TAKING TURNS. That’s Austin music!” With the release of 'Open Up the Doors on his label Flécha3 Music, these twelve songs from his Personal Hymnal broaden the reach of his musical ministry. He presents these and other songs of faith to select audiences, as well as his complete 'folk mass'. With his colleague historian/author Donaly Brice, he performs his epic ballad 'There Must Be a Good Man in Texas' (for Texas heroine Susanna Dickinson). The Personal Hymnal and the epic ballad booklets are both available through Flecha3Music.com. The broad range of Fletcher's songs is presented with superlative instrumental and vocal skills. He recurrently appears at select listening rooms, house concerts and festivals, connecting personally with his enthusiastic audiences. Residing in Lockhart, Texas, just south of Austin, Fletcher produces and hosts the highly successful series 'Evenings with the Songwriter' (EveningsWithSongwriter.com) at the historic Dr. Eugene Clark Library.
