Joe Clark
Joe Clark   
Profile:
“Joe Clark is a natural, a gifted bassist who understands groove and how to make a song feel right from the bottom up.”

- Danny Morris, Professor, Berklee College of Music

Joe Clark’s musical voyage started at a very early age. As far back as memory serves, often in the backseat of his family’s station wagon, there was always a steady pulse of exceptional music on tap from the radio.

At age ten, Joe was given the gift of a bass and amplifier. By the age of 18, he had immersed himself in jazz, winning the Louis Armstrong Award. At the same time, he was performing in several genres, from Punk Rock to traditional Celtic music. About to graduate from High School, he knew a lifetime relationship with music was ahead of him.

Joe quickly delved into the local music scene shortly after. He was a founding member of much loved Michigan Indie Rock band, Those Transatlantics. Cutting his teeth on several recording sessions with the band and touring the East Coast, South, and Midwest. Those Transatlantics were featured on NPR’s World Café as well as finalists in the Scion Xpress Fest in 2005.

After leaving Those Transatlantics, he had the honor of performing with Robert Bradley’s Blackwater Surprise. RBBS led him across the country for 2 years. Sharing the stage with the likes of The Flaming Lips, Galactic, Leftover Salmon, Zappa Plays Zappa, Cake, Buckethead, and Trombone Shorty, it was then he committed to being successful as a sideman.

Landing in Boston, MA in the fall of 2009, Joe began studying Performance at the renown Berklee College of Music. During the next two years, he studied with Lincoln Goines, Danny Morris, and Anthony Vitti. Outside of school, Joe performed with likes of Dan Kaplan (NPR Acoustic Café, Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Catch), Boston Blues Luminary Peter Parcek, The Cavemen Go, as well as many Berklee Ensembles including the Music of James Brown directed by the great Kenwood Dennard. Highlights of his stint in Boston included playing all over the New England area, as well as a rare opportunity to perform the R&B classic, “The Chicken”, with Dennard, who had performed that same tune with the legendary Jaco Pastorius.

Joe is currently living in Michigan recording, teaching, and performing.


Gear:
Streamliner 900 and 410T-UB-4

Quote from Artist:
“Discovering the Shuttle 6.0 2 years ago while living in Boston was an epiphany for me. Being able to take that tone and power on trains and buses was unthinkable to me before finding Genz Benz.

The Streamliner is a completely different animal. Having used all-tube setups during my early days in Michigan, there’s never been another solid state amp that’s come close to capturing the 3 Dimensional tone and full low end of all-tube amps, until now. Tone Bliss!”
