Dom Clark seeks “Meditation”
Written and recorded during the sunny, solitary weeks of lockdown, “Meditation” sees the return of Dom Clark as a multi-instrumental solo artist with four minutes of psychedelic indie soul/pop. The song follows a series of singles with his band, Dom Clark Trio, that have racked up regular BBC and local radio plays including 6Music Introducing.
Dom started his musical life in the northern brassband world, winning solo competitions and graduating to principal cornet before quitting at 15 to grow his hair and teach himself guitar! With two school friends their band, The Panda Gang (later The BDIs), became medium-size in Japan and were described by the UK music press as “like Portishead played by real jazz musicians”.
After three albums, the band split, Dom learnt to sing, and started a solo career gaining praise from the likes of Tom Robinson. Dom fronts his own live band Dom Clark Trio playing guitar and trumpet sometimes at the same time and also runs his own studio, the Mustard Seed, in Stratford East London where all the music is recorded and self-produced. Riding the momentum of recent singles, Dom is currently working on debut albums of solo material and an album with the Trio with releases scheduled for early 2021.
The second solo single from lockdown, “Replica”, will be released at the end of September before returning in October with the Trio and Old Town Bells. Live, Dom will be returning to Arch One in West Ham (where he took his first tentative steps as a solo artist) on August 29th top layar are acoustic set to celebrate the launch of Meditation.
