But Philip Clark isn''t one to remain behind the scenes.
In addition to sharing the stage with the Godfather of Soul, James Brown, in Las Vegas, and headlining the House of Blues in L.A, Clark is also a two-time winner of the Apollo Theatre''s original world famous Amateur Night competition.
You can find Philip Clark currently navigating the concrete canyons of New York City''s hotspots with his eponymous band.
As keyboardist, sax-man and vocalist, Clark is joined by closet neo-classical composer/bassist Christopher North, urban-funk metronome Casual-T, groove guitarist Oscar Bautista and smoldering backup vocalist Michael Ashanti.
Their string of performances continue to energize the fervid, word-of-mouth uprising that has quickly developed around this budding star.
