Additional Speaker Information

RICK CLARK- Rick Clark grew up immersed in music in his hometown of Memphis, TN. In high school, Clark worked in Memphis' main record shop, Poplar Tunes; a place where local artists like Isaac Hayes and Al Green would sometimes hang and played live and in sessions after that, including projects with members of Big Star, Memphis Horns and the seminal Memphis Power Pop scene. After DJ'ing his own radio show at WLYX-FM Memphis, Clark eventually started a successful business programming music. Eventually, he wrote for numerous national publications, including Billboard, Mix, Rolling Stone, Guitar Player, the All-Music Guide, Goldmine and others. He also authored The Expert's Encyclopedia of Recording and, most recently, the third edition of his book Mixing, Recording and Producing Techniques of the Pros.

Beginning in 1997, Clark began work producing, co-compiling and doing all the legal clearance work for what would be the first seven volumes of the award winning Oxford American Magazine music CDs, featuring music ranging from legendary artists like Bob Dylan, Randy Newman and BB King to obscure blues, jazz and Cajun music recordings.
