Biography

Stellenbosch, South Africa (1997 – present)

This entry refers to two different musicians. One is a South African singer-songwriter, and the other is a Caribbean Calypso singer from the late 1930’s.

1) As the lead singer of South African blues band Delta Blue, Gerald Clark has been a solid presence on the South African live music scene since their inception in Stellenbosch in 1997. Since then, Gerald’s music has been constantly growing and maturing. There have been excursions and local and international tours with numerous South African legends such as Albert Frost, Dan Patlansky, Koos Kombuis, Theo Crous, Luna Paige and Van Coke Kartel. His performance with Peter Hoven at Oppikoppi 2007 was named as the Best Band Performance. He has whooped and hollered on stage with the best of them, including at Kirstenbosch Gardens, Oppikoppi, Splashy Fen, Oude Libertas and Aardklop. And he has picked up a guitar lick or two in the process.

While keeping one foot firmly planted in the blues, Gerald has stepped outside musical boundaries. His acoustic Afrikaans album ‘Sweepslag’ (‘Whiplash’) was nominated as the best Alternative Music Album Afrikaans at the 2009 SAMA (South African Musicians & Artists) awards. Huisgenoot’s Tempo awards nominated Gerald for the Best Newcomer and Best Kopskuif (‘Headbopping’) Album, and the Vonk awards were quick to follow suit with nominations for the Best Newcomer, Crossover & Alternative categories.

In 2010, Sweepslag was followed by the footstomping ‘Blues and Lovesongs’, as well as nationwide gigs and international performances at the Big Wheel Blues Fest on the Isle of Man and the Ain’t Nothing But The Blues Bar in London.
