About William Clark Green:
With two critically esteemed album releases already under his belt, William Clark Green is back and this time it is getting personal. Give Green a pen and paper and he is a lyrical force to be reckoned with. On his critically acclaimed third release, Rose Queen, he is puts it all on the line and makes absolutely no apologies. “Songwriting is reality. People are scared to put reality on paper, but this is 10 times more reality than my past work,” he explains bluntly. The past few years have been consumed with Green touring heavily in the booming Texas scene and persistently writing a plethora of songs that are pulled from true to life experiences. Green has adamantly pushed his boundaries as a writer revealing, “Songwriting is exactly what is in your heart, in my opinion, it is not about writing a hit. It is about revealing your heart and your feelings on the paper.”
The music on Rose Queen ranges from the familiar Cajan flare he is known for on “Let’s Go” to the highly reflective and introspective “Welcome to the Family.” In the candidly honest lead single, “It’s About Time,” Will tackles the harsh reality that a significant relationship must end. He explains, “I think the new record will connect with a certain demographic of people who have been effected by something in their lives and therefore can identify with my stories.”
Not only has Green raised the bar with his seasoned writing and musicianship, he also enlisted a team of powerhouses to mold his full package of artistry. Music industry veteran Rachel Loy was recruited to undertake producing the new record. Green declares, “I was sold on her in just 30 minutes. She installs confidence and challenges me to be better.” Also, in the last year he signed with new management, 415 Entertainment, as well as landed a booking deal with Nashville’s Paradigm Agency. For the first time, Green embraced the nature of co-writing and included 4 tracks of co-writes on the new album.
William Clark Green is definitely no stranger to the music scene; he knew at the ripe age of 13 that he would embrace his passion and work vigorously in order to make a name for himself. As a 7th grader with substantial ambition, he began receiving guitar lessons and spending free time with his cousin writing music and bouncing ideas off of one another. Green draws inspiration from his personal musical hero Willis Allan Ramsey, as well as his father who Green has fond memories of with a guitar in hand.
While attending college at Texas Tech University, Green played for a live audience whenever he could and steadily gained notoriety on the Texas music scene. He credits the Blue Light in Lubbock as his unofficial home, where he spent many nights honing on his craft and gaining a loyal army of followers.
Rose Queen has already marked a number of milestones for the young storyteller. The debut single, “It’s About Time”, was welcomed at radio with open arms and earned William’s first Top Ten song on Texas Radio. The momentum did not stop there as his follow up single, “She Likes The Beatles,” recently scored the #1 position on both the Texas Music Chart (TMC) and the Texas Regional Radio Report (TRRR) in seemingly the blink of an eye. At this rate, the sky is the limit as everyone waits to see what William Clark Green has up his sleeve next. The full album released on April 30, 2013.
