Gary Clark Jr. has expanded his already extensive 2024 North American tour with a string of newly announced dates across the West Coast and the Midwest. These include shows in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Santa Fe and more before wrapping up in Telluride, CO on September 13. Fan presale launches on Clark's official site on March 27 at 10am local time. Public on-sale begins March 29 at 10am local time.

Renowned for unforgettable live performances, Clark will hit the road in support of his acclaimed new album, JPEG RAW, out now via Warner Records. This new body of work signals a brave new world for Clark's ever-expanding creative palette. The new music is dense and adventurous with a more cohesive synthesis of his eclectic musical universe. His samples, Thelonious Monk and Sonny Boy Williamson, decorate flourishes of African, World Music, and even Jazz while merging with rock, R&B, hip-hop and blues; familiar areas he has ventured before, this time with more unity forging a fresh new style. Clark's lyrics are pointed, deeply personal, outspoken and socially conscious with occasional forays into rap and spoken word from Clark himself. The sonics are immersive, verging on modern groove-oriented psychedelia with hip-hop driven beats in verses giving way to anthemic choruses, rich with power-chording and wide fuzz riffage.
