Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
Clarence Bucaro is a roots based, folk
musician, influenced by pop and rock elements. He began as an uplifting Americana
singer-songwriter with a three-hundred-shows-a-year schedule, sharing the stage
with arts like Aaron Neville, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Chrissie Hynde and the
Pretenders, and North Mississippi Allstars. Sweet
Corn, his first album, was released in 2002, and Sense of Light, his most popular album, was released in 2004. He
has since released four studio albums and an EP. The new, 11-track album, Hills To Home, is set to be released
June 10, 2014. It explores Bucaro's definition of the world 'home,' and the
experiences that have influenced that meaning. Neilson Hubbard (Kim Richey,
Glen Phillips, Garrison Starr, Michelle Malone) produced the playful,
nostalgic, stripped down record. "Hills Of Your Heart," Bucaro sings of a
longing to be known and to know others that draws us together. "Tallahassee"
tells the story of Bucaro's thrill on his first tour, fifteen years ago. One of
the darker sounding songs on the album, "Let Her Fall," features layered
strings that strain toward dissonance.
