Discography

A Simple Man

Kerry's first album, A Simple Man, is a celebration of small moments. Of gifts. Of friendship. Of things that matter most. Simple things. Truths. It strikes deep chords.
"What you offer through your music is love. What more do we need?”
- R. Sobczak, Toledo, OH

A Simple Man honors the lives of ordinary people.

Build A Bridge

As a follow-up to his highly successful Simple Man, Kerry emerges from the studio with another blend of sweetly intoxicating harmonies and evocative instrumentation that establishes him as a rising star in the booming market of singer/songwriter, contemporary folk music.
From the sweeping orchestration that opens The Life of a Pioneer, to the fifties doo-wop of Time Will Tell, to the driving electric guitar that leads a grand piano through the intensely personal My Promise To You, Kerry's music touches on life's most intimate moments of joy, introspection, faith and discovery.

Choose Love

His third CD, Choose Love, is a message to the seeker within each of us, it is a guide toward internal expansion, it is a testament to the power inherent in someone who has aligned himself with Spirit and allows it to flow freely.

911- Songs To Heal A Nation

This CD is Kerry's response to the terrorist attack on the Pentagon and the World Trade Center September 11, 2001. Many of these songs have been featured in the PBS special, Reclaiming Hope. Ground Zero was featured on CNN's Wolf Blitzer show for the 6th month and year anniversary of the September tragedies.

Bio

Kerry Clark’s music is like a Norman Rockwell painting. Familiar. Simple. Touching. Smile-provoking. His lyrics are a tender depiction of the human experience, and his melodies encapsulate a world of emotion in a snapshot moment. He sings his tribute to innocence and also provides a timely reminder of the way back.

From ballads to anthems to clarion calls, his songs tell tales from the every day human experience. Sometimes ordinary. Sometimes extraordinary. Always uplifting. They are a slice of life, so full of life.

If his songs were Rockwell paintings, they would show a porch light left on in the dark.
A finger pointing up. A view of the chaos in our world, and a vision of what’s behind the veil.

For those who appreciate the willingness to risk having a voice, Kerry’s comes like the cover of the Saturday Evening Post. Comforting and calming. A celebration of hope, of light, of family, of community, of a place called home.

Kerry Clark’s musical journey began in Fifth grade when his mother bought his father a guitar as an anniversary gift. “My dad taught me the 5 chords he knew”, Clark says remembering fondly. “I learned the songs of the singer-songwriters that moved me - John Denver, Harry Chapin, James Taylor.” Kerry learned and sang those songs until the gift of his songs and stories sang in his own heart. He has been writing ever since.

Kerry has been recording long enough to remember Lps! “My first RECORD came out in 1985”, he said, remembering the 1,000 copies of Life And Times that he sold out of the back of his van. He now has 4 Cds to his credit.
