“Most musicians will tell you that every time they step on stage they feel like they’re starting a new adventure. This feeling of freshness is more like a fact of life for up-and-coming roots/reggae/rock artist Jay D Clark. The Philadelphia native... is set to play more than a dozen dates, each time performing in a new city with a different band backing him up.”

“In 1982, I saw B. F. Skinner give his pessimistic "Why are we not acting to save the world?" speech about the likely failure of our technology of behavior to stop disaster scenarios from prevailing. At the macro level, I find Clark to be a rock and roll prophet of our time.”
