Gary Clark Jr. Shares A Poignant New Visual For "Hold On"

Gary Clark Jr. - "Hold On" [Official Video]

With his latest album, The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim, Gary Clark Jr. was a one man tidal wave of bluesy, soulful excellence. The album marked the first outing in which he manned damn-near every instrument, making his fourth studio album perhaps his most intimate yet. While we've had plenty of time to audibly absorb the piece in the months since its September 2015 release, today, BB Clark has shared an emotionally-gripping new visual for the album cut "Hold On," finding him full-shred against a backdrop of countless instances of uprising, ranging from Dr. King's civil rights marches to the LA riots and on to our time of social discordance. You can watch the powerful new video down below, but if you've yet to put an ear to The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim, we implore you to hit iTunes for the full treatment. You can also catch him on the road this spring and summer on an extensive tour in support of the record. Come one, come all. Your boy is not to be missed.
