North Reading, Mass. – Rocker Gary Clark Jr. will appear at the sixth private listening event held by audio company Bowers & Wilkins to bring noted musicians and select fans together to listen to the artist’s music on Bowers & Wilkins products.
The Sound Session series, launched last year, played host in 2011 to Coldplay, Barenaked Ladies’ front man and solo performer Steven Page, urban pop artist Tinie Tempah, actor and musician Jeff Bridges, and Lou Reed and Metallica in a joint appearance. In May 2012, Norah Jones was the featured artist.
The event with Gary Clark will be held Oct. 22 at the Merry Karnowski Gallery in Los Angeles on the same day that Clark’s new album Blak And Blu debuts. The album will be played in its entirety on Bowers & Wilkins 802 Diamond speakers, Zeppelin Air tabletop AirPlay speaker, and the company’s portable headphones.
Clark will join the Bowers & Wilkins Sound Session after the taping of his appearance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” which will air later that evening.
Bowers & Wilkins promotes the event through social-media platforms, encouraging consumers to register for a chance to attend the event through the company’s Facebook page. Winners get a pair of tickets to the private event, a meet-and-greet with the artist, and a pair of Bowers & Wilkins P3 headphones.
“These exclusive Sound Sessions enable us to share our 45-year commitment of building the most extraordinary loudspeakers and personal audio products with fans and musicians alike who are truly passionate about music,” said Tyler Fairchild, brand development director for Bowers & Wilkins.
