Album Notes
Be sure to check out Bryan's website: "If Sting was from Texas, he'd be named Bryan Clark"

Daily Texan: "Bryan Clark is a rising star to watch. Carrying the torch for the new breed of Texas singer-songwriters."

Guitar Nation - This could be one the years best CDs. "Work Songs of Love" is for music lovers. Serious lyrics. Serious guitar/dobro."

Guitar Player magazine - "Bryan Clark has a jazz-funk sensibility akin to Hollywood studio cats like Lee Ritenour, Larry Carlton, and Steve Lukather. An understated composer with echoes of vintage Pat Metheny, Clark exploits space and timbre in his long, modally tinged, melodic passages."

EAR magazine: "A truly unique artist. His ability to mix and transform genres is a pure delight for the ears."

Listen.Com: "Bryan's influences are wide ranging to say the least. Classical meets improvisation here with no genre (inc. rock and bluegrass) left unexplored."

Bryan has performed with the Dixie Dreggs, Kansas, blues great Bonnie Raitt, and jazz luminaries Larry Carlton and Scott Henderson. He also performed National Anthem at the Los Angeles Staples Center for the 2002 NHL Stanley Cup Quarterfinal broadcast throughout North America Broadcast by ESPN.

Mike Dietz

great job, blend of a lot of styles leads to a cool original vibe.
Excellent recording, deep content & lyrics.

Amazing guitar layers and arrangements, definitely a talented player.

I love the melody on the second track, predictions of you.

Track 8 - Unrequited is my favorite track, very cool grooves. Carrie Brown is pretty catchy too. I guess we all have a Carrie Brown who breaks our heart, but made us sing!

Smoking Americana at it's Best!
Powerful rootsy Americana music packaged with layers of tasteful picking and soul. Excellent vocals, mix, writing. This is the stuff you can't get from big record companies. CD BABY YOU ROCK! Highly recommend this for any acoustic collection.
