After the recent video premiere of Shannon Clark and the Sugar‘s ‘Carry Me‘, tonight we feel privileged to host another magnificent sample of the act’s musicianship.
“We all wait for different reasons: we wait for seasons, we wait for lovers , we wait for death . ‘Wait till Spring’” is a song about finding yourself and waiting for someone that’s not coming and coping with that . I wrote this for my Grandfather as he was lost when his wife of 65 years passed on.“ – explains Shannon Clark about tonight’s exclusive, a track of raw emotion, straight from the heart and born from real life’s personal events. Turn this one up loud: This is intense americana folk with a heart of pure Gold!
Hailing from rustic Darke County, Ohio, Shannon Clark & the Sugar Americana/indie-soul act, Shannon Clark & the Sugar, announce their single, “Wait till Spring” (Out 3/19/21) from their first full length album Marks on the Wall, produced by GRAMMY Award-winner Mark Howard (Bob Dylan, U2, Neil Young, Tom Waits, Lucinda Williams, Emmy Lou Harris, Willie Nelson), to be released May 14, 2021. Lucky that talent runs in the family, the husband, wife, and daughter team write and perform their original music about personal loss, struggles and the human condition, weaving together heartfelt emotions with a distinctive flair.
The trio’s journey to their current arrangement was not an easy one. Husband and wife duo, Shannon and Brittany Clark joined the Warped Tour to represent Ohio in the mid 2000’s. Soon after, tragedy hit the family with the loss of their second daughter. For a time the music stopped. However, the pair swiftly found that creative songwriting would become the healing tool that brought them together and revived the band. When their oldest daughter, Navie joined in 2019 as a vocalist/instrumentalist, they began experimenting with a new sound and Shannon Clark & the Sugar was born.
