Meet The James Clark Institute
Producer Moe Berg adds "James takes the power pop traditions of The Beatles, Jellyfish and Split Enz and combines them with the high IQ lyrics of Elvis Costello and Joe Jackson. The result makes him one of Canada's greatest unsung songwriters".
Whether he is in the institute or not, Toronto based music artist James Clark is a doctor of pop. His prescription is simple, three-minute blasts of medicinal music. “A wealth of songwriting talent.” says renowned music writer/ ex-MuchMusic VJ Michael Williams in Cashbox Canada.
