If you’re unfamiliar with Gary Clark Jr., allow us to introduce you to the blues/rock/soul singer and musician. On Feb. 16, the 35-year-old virtuoso graced the Saturday Night Live stage with a performance of his new single “Pearl Cadillac.” Clad in a suit and flat-brim hat, Clark showed off his passionate vocals and amazing guitar skills. And as soon as he went into a six-string solo, he channeled an emotional Prince and Jimi Hendrix-esque flair. The riffs mixed with his melodies make you feel Clark’s energy with every sound, and the result is a strong recital that’s masterfully unembellished and gritty. Watch his soulful set in the clip above!
