Ben Clark is still a largely unknown composer, unless you've heard his unforgettable music. A new voice in American musical theatre, for the past decade Clark has contributed music and lyrics for three musicals: The Circus in Winter, Skin and Bones, and the very recent Bruno and the Gospel of Infinity. Composing on guitar, drawing influence from artists like Jeff Buckley, Dave Matthews, and Martin Sexton, Clark's writing style is a story-driven blend of folk, Americana, and rock. A new voice with traditional roots needs a venue to match, and there is no better place to make his New York City debut than The Green Room 42.

This release, a sonic expedition past genre barriers, aiming to guide listeners towards anthemic bliss, is the band's fourth full-length independent album. The band, David New (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Chris Powers (Bass), Dave Johnson (Baritone, Tenor Saxophone), Cody Moore (Keyboards), Matt Poynter (Drums, Vocals), and Justino Walker (Guitar), call St. Petersburg, FL home and mined an expansive well of local and global influences to sharpen their signature style on To the Ends of the Earth. New describes the sound best as, “an ethereal journey to the ends of the earth,” after which the album was named. The band, along with producers Jackson Hoffman and Ryder Stuart, set out to create a timeless record, remembering back to their early days of informal jam sessions. “It helped us come to terms with who we are as a band, defining our sound. We weren't trying to sound like anything but ourselves,” says New. To the Ends of the Earth is available for pre-order now.
