While there are several performers on today’s music scene, few carry the burden of following in the footsteps of one of music’s greatest vocalists. Roy Hamilton Jr., son of the legendary “Golden Boy of Song” Roy Hamilton, who recorded such hit songs as You’ll Never Walk Alone, Unchained Melody, Ebb Tide, and Don’t Let Go. Roy has committed himself to doing just that, and to preserving the legacy of his legendary father. And, blessed with the drive and ambition that is engrained within all stars, as well as the melodic, soaring tenor voice left to him by his father, Roy Hamilton Jr. fills those big shoes with ease. Born September 9, 1961 in New York City, it seems Roy was born to sing. At seven years old he performed with his father at various events, including for the Prime Minister of the Bahamas and his wife at the Nassau Beach Hotel. He also sang at various churches and other events, grooming himself for the life of a showman. After his father’s passing in 1969, Roy continued to perform with his brother Ray and his mother Myrna. They recorded a tribute album to his great father, entitled “The Hamilton Affair For Roy” in 1976. The group performed at events in New York, the Bahamas and the Carver Theater in Miami, Florida.
In 1978, Roy found his second great love, Maria Wilson, and the two were married a year later. They have 3 children, Roy, Thomas, and Raphael Hamilton, and has been going strong ever since. It was during this time that Roy put his larger musical aspirations briefly on hold, in order to raise his new family. His passion for singing never diminished, however, and he continued to use his gifts to serve the Lord, performing at various churches and church-sponsored events.
Very few artists successfully cross back and forth from jazz to classical and back again: Wynton Marsalis, Benny Goodman, Duke Ellington, Keith Jarrett, Brad Mehldau and Arturo Sandoval come to mind. But now add to the list Dallas vocalist Damon K. Clark. Already acclaimed for his unusual sensitivity, versatility and virtuosity, Clark is as much at home with Thelonius Monk’s “’Round Midnight” as he is with Puccini’s “Nessun Dorma.” The mellifluous tenor minimizes the aesthetic distance between the classical and jazz worlds.
Although Clark has performed in Europe, all over the United States, and in many venues in Dallas, including the Winspear Opera House, he considers Oak Cliff’s Kessler Theater to be his artistic home. In fact, his debut CD is entitled, Damon K. Clark Live at the Kessler Volume I. The CD includes a stellar cast supporting musicians including Caleb McCampbell, Asher Barreras, Justin Heaverin and Neeki Bey.
While his tessitura and timbre could be described as Bobby McFerrin-esque, his approach to the material is unique. Clark’s scatting in particular exhibits a classical precision, while hinting at his affection for Ella Fitzgerald’s and Mel Tormé’s improvisational skills. Clark’s take on the Gershwins’ “They All Laughed” is a highlight, showcasing his astonishing range, playful scatting, melismatic mastery and elastic phrasing.
