EARTH TO CLARK
Friday, Oct 27, 2017

When Adam Gasser was 16 he had an epiphany—peace is possible and hip-hop is a vessel to spread that inner peace to all people. The band formed organically over time, beginning with Gasser and former member Gregory Boyer in 2014. Collaboration with drummer Mark Atkinson and vocalist Ariana Hartgraves came next followed by bassist Bassel Saad, and finally Zak Radewan on Percussion/Synth.

The variation in the personal experiences and influences of each of the band members contribute to the diversity of Earth to Clark’s style and genre; incorporating elements of Funkadelic, Rock, Reggae, and Hippie Hip-Hop, Earth to Clark celebrates a dynamic sound that draws a wide variety of audience members. Fueled by passion and community, Earth to Clark brings awareness to social issues facing the world today.

Earth to Clark has opened for bands such as The Wailers, Tribal Seeds, Satsang, Dustin Thomas, New Reb and Chances R Good. They have played multiple festivals in the Midwest including Shangri-La and Project Earth. They have sustained their vision and hope to continue touring as much as possible, traveling the world to spread their message. Their debut album, The Giving Tree was released on March 31st, 2017.
