INTRODUCTION

While growing up, Toronto-based music artist James Clark wanted to be both John Lennon and Ringo Starr. He has managed to establish himself as both a sought after, solid rock and roll drummer and a respected, creative, melodic pop/rock songwriter. Under the guise of The James Clark Institute, he takes the classic pop song style that he grew up with and gives it his own spin.  The music of songwriters such as Elvis Costello, Ray Davies and Lennon and McCartney have all influenced James Clarks' musical style, which has been described as Power Pop. “A wealth of songwriting talent”, says Michael Williams at Cashbox Canada Magazine.  (more)
