Album Notes
In school, the teachers noted that "Clark has imagination" BUT "He won't refrain from disturbing others."
Not much has changed. Clark just CAN'T sit still!

The constants and contrasts shared by people from around the world feed and shape his vision.

Clark calls three cities his home:
In Seattle, he might be found holed up writing in his woodshed.
In Nashville, he sings frequently at songwriter rounds.
Munich is his base for touring in Western Europe.

No matter where he hangs his hat, Clark continues to pen unique interpretations of his world. It's a world in love and in loss, in clarity and confusion. He digs deep to find universal themes that connect us all.

His new album, "A Complicated Cake" is a sweet yet complex look at life.

Clark has been featured by National Public Radio, USA Today, Yahoo News, Reuters, Spiegel, Car Talk and other worldwide sources.

Fresh as a glass of lemonade...
Part Waylon Jennings, part Gordon Lightfoot. Part John Prine, part Tom Waits. Clark Snyder is another one of those accomplished lyricists who knows how to take the mundane imagery of the modern world and make it seem somehow timeless…somehow poetic. It’s a talent secured by those who are able to see the beauty and irony in almost anything. Sung in a deadpan baritone with just a hint of twang, and with comic metaphor in songs like “Hubcap,” sung from the point of view of a lost hubcap on the side of the road longing for his companion Chevy Malibu, Snyder recalls a lyrical adventurousness and focus usually associated with people like those mentioned above. This lyrical cleverness continues on songs like “The Parts I Like,” which admits it’s ok not to know all the lyrics, so long as you sing along to the parts you like. With a simple, sparse production predominated by Snyder’s vintage Gibson B-25 acoustic, A Complicated Cake is one album that can never be accused of being insincere. Far from being “complicated,” it is Cake’s simplicity that is its greatest asset. A couple of the songs seem to have been written as gifts for various occasions. It is as simple as the satisfaction felt after finishing cutting the grass on a blazing summer day, or as fresh as the glass of lemonade with which you quench your thirst. There doesn’t have to be much more to it than that. A good song speaks for itself. It comes from one heart in a spontaneous act of reaching out to another. This is what Snyder has accomplished here… at least the reaching out part. The rest is up to you.
