Who is Clark?

Clark is a nineteen year old professional musician, in denial about his northern heritage. First coming to church music at the tender age of fifteen, he planned on training as an organist, before realising his ineptitude, and instead he 'gave singing a go'. Something clearly worked out because Clark has held the title of Bass Choral Scholar at Hereford Cathedral, under the musical direction of Geraint Bowen, since September 2016. The resultant move south appeased Clark's closet southernness, as 'bath' quickly became 'barth'. Alongside playing the organ, piano and singing badly, Clark's compositions have been performed all around the globe, surprisingly.

Avoiding life-long psychological scarring, Clark survived Boarding School, where he studied A Levels in Music, Latin, History, and Politics. Here, he was the only person stupid enough to accept the Organ Scholarship. Broken, desolate and demoralised, he found refuge away from the console in the choir stalls of Blackburn Cathedral very far away from school. Aside from music, Clark enjoys photography, acting and exploring the countryside on foot, often at the same time. In the past, Clark has been known to dabble in the world of YouTube and local radio. He also maintains the remains of this fallen media empire in the form of blogs, videos and witty remarks on Twitter! He's also quite sarcastic.
