Willy Clark is a name that I have seen more and more over the past year, and I absolutely love it. In my eyes that is a sign he is doing something right. I had the opportunity to chat with him a few weeks ago at a show, and he is one that truly loves what he does. Just from talking to him I could hear the passion in his voice. And that passion 100% translates over to his music. Willy Clark is slowly building a fan base here in Columbus, and playing Gnarbeque is only going to build on that. This alone is why I fell he is an act not to miss this weekend.
