Call in to speak with the host
Unconventional, and unconstrained by others’ opinions, Kara Clark and her badass Alt Country/Rock sound just hits the stage running. She doesn’t care where she “fits in” cause when she’s out there, it all falls into place. Kara’s always worn her heart on her sleeve and her written word is the woven tapestry of troubled times, hidden passion, injustice, haunting ghosts, hypocrisy, regret, the worst love we seem to want, empowerment and the gritty, storied truth. Her first album, SINNIN,’ released in 2010, set the ball rolling. Highway’s chorus (Sinnin’) leaves women stomping: “She chose the highway, the road he told her she could take. He don’t know he’s been replaced, by a lonely stretch of interstate…” Southern Hospitality, a song from her next album, unravels a haunting, then hopeful piece of history: “It’s called justice not corruption. There’s nothing you can do. God forbid you don’t look like them, they will pin their sins on you…” Then there’s the head-nodder lines from The Devil Don't Cry and Whiskey and Cigarettes, “Jesus don’t lie, Devil don’t cry, I don’t know either of the two….Whiskey and cigarettes, are gonna be the death of me. I sleep with regret, my best friend is misery.” Forced to place herself as Alt-Country/Rock, she laughs and quotes her favorite description from a fan: “Kara’s a twisted orgy of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Janis Joplin and Guns & Roses.”
