Kara Clark is one of the “quality” examples of Nashville these days. She is hell-bent on not conforming her music, looks or actions. Labeling her is tricky, so I say just listen to her music.

Still working on that hot first release.



Unconventional and unconstrained, Nashville's Kara Clark hits hard with her badass old-country-rockin' sound. When asked to describe her genre of music, Clark either flips the bird with a lovin' smile or quotes her favorite description from a fan: “A twisted orgy of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin and Guns & Roses.”

This curvy, twangy, super-sexy black-haired raven with Native American heritage and West Virginia story-telling style just never wanted to be part of anything mainstream. “I'm not puttin' on the outfit, losin' the weight or coloring my hair! People love me for who I am. Shit, I love me for who I am.”

Kara has always worn her heart on her sleeve (with every tattoo). Her old country lyrics and genre-bending country-rock sound are a woven tapestry of troubled times, hidden passion, haunting ghosts, hope, hypocrisy, empowerment and the gritty, gutchecking truth. Her music resonates with both country and rock fans because her lyrics and music communicate the trials and triumphs of ordinary people.

Her first album, Sinnin', was released in 2010 and set the ball rolling. Her second album, Southern Hospitality, will be available worldwide in January 2012.

Kara caught the ear of monster axman and producer Kenny Olson (Kid Rock, Jimi Hendrix Experience, Les Paul, Sheryl Crow, Faith Evans, Kenny Olson Cartel), who came on board to co-produce some songs on “Southern Hospitality” with Clark and Mark Lambert (Leon Russell, Ronnie Milsap) with engineering by Toby Wright (Metallica, Alice in Chains).

Featured on Clark's new album, "Southern Hospitality", are Brent Mason (George Strait, Brad Paisley, Natalie Cole, Willie Nelson), Kenny Olson (Les Paul, Experience Hendrix, Sheryl Crow, Kenny Olson Cartel), Dave McAfee (Jamey Johnson, Toby Keith), "Cowboy" Eddie Long (Jamey Johnson), Eerie Von (Danzig), Wayd Battle and Peter Keys (Lynyrd Skynyrd) to name a few.

“I'm blessed to get this kind of support and excitement about my music,” says Clark about the brilliant players who joined her in the studio. “I think we're all ready for a new kind of country sound. I know my fans are.”
