Clarke Article in the New University Newspaper!

Nov 10, 2010   //   by admin   //   News/Blog  //  No Comments

Ian Massey from over at the UCI school newspaper “The New University” wrote a great article about our band.

Last November, James Clarke was juggling the responsibilities of finishing up his degree at UC Irvine, doing rounds as the residential advisor in the Brisa dorm of Mesa Court and performing with his self-titled band at arbitrary venues across Orange and Los Angeles County.

After graduating this past summer, the alumnus who double-majored in international studies and business economics was well aware of the financial forecast in the real world. Currently working at a valet in Los Angeles, Clarke balances making ends meet with pursuing lyrical dreams on the stage.

On Nov. 9, he is expected to release his second album, “Self Control,” returning for a homecoming of sorts to UCI’s Anthill Pub at 8 p.m. The event will feature a live performance from his band “Clarke,” which also consists of current Anteaters: fourth-year guitarist Favian Cheong and third-years Carson Lere on bass guitar and drummer Spencer Lere….
