Mick J. Clark: The New British Invasion! When you hear the term, “The British Invasion,” it usually brings a smile and, a flood of great music memories from a time not so long ago. Especially for those of us over 45 years old. Normally names like, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, Zombies, Turtles, etc are often associated with it. It’s a term that’s part of the lexicon of the 1960s. It speaks of a time when the music was pure, real, and spoke to a whole new generation. Well, that’s the feeling I get when I listen to UK singer/songwriter,Mick J. Clark. Turns out, the man with the honest smile, once planned to be a veterinary surgeon, but the desire to be a pop star called him in a different direction.

In fact, it was a “Futurama Two” guitar in a shop window that caught Mick’s attention. So much so, that he skipped school dinners for three months to save enough money for it. Each day he would walk to the shop and stare at it through the window, eagerly awaiting for the time it would be his. As time passed, Mick realized he wasn’t really all that keen to continue on studying to become a veterinary surgeon, and a career in football didn’t seem to be in the cards either. But Mick still had his guitar, and with that, he began writing songs, did demo discs, joined bands and even did some time as a radio personality for Croydon University Hospital Radio. But as so often, life calls and Mick eventually mastered becoming an electrician as one has to put food on the table and pay the bills. However, the music kept calling to him, and he listened. Now armed with over 50 original songs, three full-length albums, and a novel to boot, Mick shows us, it’s never too late to embrace the artist within you. With that being said, I’ve recently had the opportunity to hear his music, and it took me back to that time when virtually every song on the radio was a hit. Mick’s sound is original and his voice feels familiar, like someone we’ve always heard when we turned on the radio. Well, Tom Slick is excited to announce that beginning Monday May 30th, we will be featuring Mick’s albums, on The Morning Brew, bringing you a new track each week. This is an amazing collection of music that I believe will speak to each listener in their own way. They’re fun, emotional, rebellious, and all of them heartfelt.
