ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The songs track Clark’s life from his 1960’s childhood onward. Figuring out life, leaving this crazy world behind, reminiscing mother love, cold cities, sunsets, the Blues, things “Gone with the Wind,” and new horizons are among the dozen offerings. Softly sung lyrics and melodious sounds drift above the more vivid emotions, some joy, some sorrow, some loves, and some losses. This Doctor of English from TAMU strikes a different chord from the usual expectations of Aggieland. He’ll read his poetry, fiction, and songs – and motivate you. He also enjoys workshops for students, young or old. He may be preparing a 4th CD, one of gospel roots where he’ll continue “laying the hard things aside.”

Creative and interesting, this man will draw you into any song he sings. And he tells many stories.

Kathleen Hudson, Executive Director, Texas Heritage Music Foundation and author of Telling Stories, Writing Songs: An Album of Texas Songwriters



Clark’s sophomore project is a maturation of his vast talents. The stories keep coming, as in the maternal remembrance “Baby, Don’t You Cry” and the Vietnam era double entendre “I Just Wanna Fly.” Clark has some blues and upbeat pop tunes as well, showing his diversity. This disc is well orchestrated and superbly arranged, especially the horns on “Who Sings The Blues.”

*******************************
Lawrence J. Clark's second release, "New Horizon," is an amazing leap of faith. Departing from the all acoustic sound of his debut CD, "Beautiful," Lawrence returns to some of his earlier rock, jazz, blues, and alt country influences on "New Horizon." Fans who are used to hearing Lawrence's acoustic folk and blues sets will perk their ears up with the sounds of electric guitars, full percussion, stacked vocals, and even a horn section on "Right Side of Life" and "Who Sings the Blues" (duet with Lindsay Chase).

With full-scale production (using Digidesign's Pro Tools) engineered by Chris Gage at Moonhouse Studios in Austin, "New Horizon" includes guest performances by Gene Elders (Lyle Lovett and George Strait) on violin; Chris Gage (Roy Clark, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Jerry Jeff Walker, many others) on guitars, piano, and organ; Christine Albert (Boxcars, Albert and Gage) on harmony vocals; Paul Pearcy (Terri Hendrix and many others) on hand percussion; Wallace Hammond, Mark Wilson, and Ed McNams (Killer Bees, Blue Construct, Tribal Nation) on horns; Ruthie Foster and Cyd Cassone on harmony vocals and percussion; Eddie "Cinco" Block (Firewater) on bass and harmony vocals; Lindsay Chase on vocals; Kristen deWitt (Sara Hickman and others) on harmony vocals; and Parker Townsend and Edward J. Clark III (Hilljack, Second Sight) on drums.

The Collegian

a modern day bard, able to sing songs, tell tales, and weave within his stories
All in all, Lawrence J. Clark seems to be a reputable jack-of-all-trades; a modern day bard, able to sing songs, tell tales, and weave within his stories an in-depth knowledge which he freely passes on to those who will listen.
