“Southern Hotel” will surely put Clark on the map, and open doors for growth and flourishing in the future of his musical career.”

...creating an atmosphere that most primetime audiences wouldn’t be able to handle. And, perhaps most importantly, he’s an artist who is earnest and full of integrity.

James Ethan Clark is breaking down the barriers of traditional americana music with influences of progressive rock, folk, soul and influences from his Grandmother, who was a Gospel recording artist in the 70’s and was a church choir director for 20 years.

Clark's first, full-length recording “Southern Hotel” is an intrepid collection of songs about a young man’s coming of age in a bleak, southern landscape.

 Most recently, Clark and his band (James Ethan Clark & The Renegades) recorded a single called "Covered In Roses" at The Silent Planet in Nashville with J. Brandon Owens engineering and mixing, and Mastering by Joe Hutchinson of Garage Masters.

Alongside his band (Sam Wilson - Lead Guitar & Pedal Steel, Steven Cheek - Bass, Nathan Sexton - Percussion) was a voice that soared along with Clark's, Erin Rae contributed a featured vocal on the track.

While at the time residing in North Carolina, Clark cut the aforementioned "Southern Hotel" in Nashville, TN at Prime Recording with Joshua Keith engineering and mixing. Mastering by Jonathan Russell of Masterfonics (Nashville).


“Southern Hotel” released on April 2, 2013 (solo).

“Covered In Roses (Feat. Erin Rae)” released on January 26, 2018 (JECATR).

Its mix of alt-country and rock ‘n’ roll is like a convergence of Crazy Horse meets James Taylor or The Eagles.

Every song is written by the heart on his sleeve. Clark’s goal is to invite people in and to ensure the music is relatable and comforting.
