Clark Beckham

Pop/Soul singer and American Idol runner-up Clark Beckham has announced a 23-city U.S. tour in conjunction with the upcoming release of his new album, Light Year. The tour launches Feb. 11th in Dallas and will extend into spring with tour stops including Austin, Chicago, Seattle, and New York.

The announcement comes two years after Beckham’s international tour and highly successful release of his EP Year One. For Light Year Beckham has crafted a full-length album of original songs, including collaborations like the recently released single “I Hurt Too Much,” a stunner reminiscent of the soul ballads of the ‘70s.

“I’m such a fan of other musicians and songwriters, I love taking an idea to a great writer and watching their wheels turn,” said Beckham. “Then we’re off, going to places we’d have never found on our own.” As much as he enjoys the collaborative process, writing solo will always be important to Beckham. Added the Nashville native, “There are some songs that happen when you’re alone.”

The Light Year title seemed a natural successor to Year One and a nod to seminal events that have propelled Clark’s career. When his soulful, bluesy voice caught the attention of iconic producer Quincy Jones, who would become a mentor to Beckham, even the iconic Jones took a moment to gush about Clark’s talents. “I think God leaves His hand on a select few just a bit longer than the rest,” Jones said, “and there’s no doubt (Clark) is one of them. He is an absolutely unforgettable talent.”

Said Beckham, “When I look back at my season on Idol, my time with Quincy, and my first international tour, I’ve experienced cosmic creative growth through it all. Light Year isn’t only about the past,” he explained, “it’s also about boldly charging ahead, declaring that what’s in front of me will be greater than what’s behind me.”

Beckham has made several television appearances, including ABC’s Live with Kelly and Michael and Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family. He has been nominated for a Teen Choice Award, performed with the Nashville Symphony, and opened for Capitol Records recording artists Jon Bellion and Allen Stone.

In 2016 a national survey by E-Score ranked Beckham as one of American Idol’s Top Ten Most Talented contestants since its debut in 2002.
