Event and Artist Info:

Over five albums literate and honey-voiced singer-songwriter Clarence Bucaro has crafted an impressive canon of uplifting Americana, garnering comparisons to Jackson Browne and Van Morrison.

The Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter built his career on a robust 300-shows-per-year schedule sharing stages with such diverse and established artists as Aaron Neville, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders, North Mississippi Allstars, and Fountains of Wayne.

Clarence's upcoming fifth album, Walls Of The World, released April 3rd 2012 on 20/20 Records, is his most ambitious and diverse to date. WOTW is jointly produced by Hector Castillo (David Bowie, Björk, Lou Reed, and Rufus Wainwright) and Chocolate Genius and benefits from the complimentary approaches of Castillo's organic ambience and Chocolate Genius's knack for nuanced, moody electronic flourishes.

Conceptually it's a thematic piece using walls as metaphor for political and personal division. The album is inspired by the works of controversial Turkish writer Orhan Pamuk's Snow and conflict journalist Asne Seierstad's Angel of Grozny; Clarence's own on-the-scene reportage from Jerusalem, Cuba, Morocco, and Russia; and his inner journey of first-time fatherhood.

The Cleveland, Ohio native established himself with critically acclaimed albums like his Anders Osborne-produced debut Sweet Corn (Anders is best known for penning Tim McGraw's 3-million selling single "Watch The Wind Blow") and his Rounder Records sophomore album Sense Of Light. Walls Of The World is an interpersonal and personal travelogue scored by an ambient and soulful production aesthetic bittersweet enough to evoke the dissonance in the human struggle but warm enough for the music to fill you with hope.
