Kristen T.
Clark

Ontario, CANADA
,
Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Girl Guitarist With two successful single releases to radio, CD Baby and iTunes and a performance at Toronto’s famed Hugh’s Room with Triumph’s superstar Rik Emmett, 15-year-old Kristen T. Clark is super-excited about what the music biz might hold for her in the near future. Her excitement escalated ten-fold this summer when she was declared the winner of an International contest for a week-long Scholarship to Toronto’s most prestigious SongStudio Songwriting Workshop. This workshop is hosted by rock Superstar Rik Emmett (Triumph) and highly respected composer, producer, engineer, writer and broadcaster Blair Packham (The Jitters). Additional Faculty at the workshop would be Greig Nori (MuchMusic, DisBand), Jim Vallance (Hedley, Bryan Adams), Terry Brown (Rush), Allister Bradley, Bill McKetrick and Suzie Vinnick! With world-renowned Faculty as her mentors, Clark spent the entire week at Ryerson University honing her songwriting skills in the workshops, co-writing and jamming with other musicians and performing at several of Toronto’s best venues such as the Gladstone Hotel, C’est What and Hugh’s Room. The event concluded with a songwriter’s showcase in which Clark performed one of her own original songs WITH Rik Emmett! Clark now writes her originals with a new attitude, her eyes set on releasing a CD full of originals in the near future. She enjoys writing her material using her own life experiences to infuse strong emotions and vivid mental images into her stories. She is excited about getting her new songs recorded because they are ‘nothing’ like the ones she has previously released. Clark has performed in hundreds of shows and benefits with headliners such as George Fox, Jamie Warren, Carroll Baker and Steve Piticco and has made numerous TV and radio appearances over the years. She has also been the recipient of a Best Young Songwriter’s Award Nomination at the Barrie New Music Fest in 2009. Using her music as a tool, Clark has assisted in fundraising efforts for Terry Fox Cancer Research, Kids Help Phone, Smitty’s Christmas Wish Foundation, the US Humane Society, Calling Cards for the Troops and the woundedwarriors.ca organizations in an effort to assist those in need. Clark has taken vocal lessons since the age of seven and continues to hone her guitar skills with a private lead guitar instructor. It’s no secret that her guitar heroes are Rik Emmett, John Petrucci, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Jason McCoy and Orianthi. They are for good reason! She is now working on tweaking her band for 2011 and fans will be shocked by the obvious turn towards rock with a healthy splash of teenaged attitude thrown in, so stay tuned!
