This video pretty much encapsulates the type of artistry I respect. Musicianship should include showmanship, but that showmanship should never take center stage in comparison to genuine talent. Gary Clark Jr. came (seemingly) from nowhere in Austin and have proven his worth on the big stage at festivals around the world.

I have had the privilege to witness him live at the Hangout Festival in Gulf Shores, AL. I would love to see him at a smaller venue. For now, these videos will have to do.
