It’s hard to believe Mike Clark started playing guitar at 27 as he tells Vicky Gregor in this recording of last Friday’s live on-air interview with Vicky Gregor. Since he took up music, Clark has formed his own band, The Jack Trades, joined forces with The Haunted Windchimes, and created the newly released solo album Bound to Break–under the name The Ghost of Michael Clark. The live versions of these songs are gorgeous as is his new record. Take a listen and check out Blank Tape Records to buy the album :
