Bio – Kristen T. Clark Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist
Performing with Triumph’s superstar Rik Emmett, winning one First and two Second Place finishes in Supernova Battle of the Bands contests recently and securing a Carparelli Guitar Co. endorsement has 15-year-old Kristen T. Clark wondering what could possibly come next with her music career.
Clark’s excitement escalated ten-fold in 2010 when she won an International contest for a week-long Scholarship to Toronto’s SongStudio Songwriting Workshop. It’s hosted yearly by rock Superstar Rik Emmett (Triumph) and highly respected producer, engineer and broadcaster Blair Packham (The Jitters). Additional Faculty were Greig Nori (MuchMusic, DisBand), Jim Vallance (Hedley, Bryan Adams), Terry Brown (Rush), Allister Bradley, Bill McKetrick, Dan Hill and Suzie Vinnick. Clark spent the week at Ryerson University co-writing and performing at some of Toronto’s prestigious venues such as C’est What and the Gladstone Hotel. The week concluded with a showcase in which Clark performed an original song ‘Not My Type’ at Hugh’s Room with Rik Emmett!
She continues to write new material and being a lead guitar player allows her to write titillating solos that are riveting but more importantly, memorable. Clark won a Battle of the Bands contest against 11 other bands in November 2010 awarding her 12 hrs. of recording time at Lake Effect Studio near Orillia. She has been busy in the studio this spring recording her new original called ‘Meant To Be’ which was released to CD Baby and iTunes as well as the Top 50 Rock Radio station across Canada on June 8, 2011.
December 12th, 2010 was also a dream come true for Clark. She was inducted into (endorsed by) the world-renowned Carparelli Guitar Co. and presented with an S4 electric guitar. “I chose Carparelli Guitars because they have superior sound, feel and workmanship. They are a company that really cares. Being a Carparelli endorsee really is like having another family,” Clark says. See Press release here: http://prlog.org/11150842.
Clark’s history has seen her perform alongside headliners Rik Emmett, Blair Packham, Allister Bradley and Caught Off Guard (Calgary, Alberta), and open for Canadian greats such as Tom Wilson, George Fox, Jamie Warren and Carroll Baker. She has assisted with fundraising efforts for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, 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, and numerous others.
