Singer/songwriter/musician James Clark confronts the ghosts from his past and puts them to song under the guise of the james clark institute while the voices in his head sing along in harmony. Planting his tongue firmly in his cheek, James takes his moniker from Toronto’s infamous Clarke Institute Of Psychiatry and uses it to twist and turn his own personal demons into witty pop tunes.
2004’s ‘Home is Where the Heart Attack is’ received airplay on campus radio across Canada and charted in Ontario. Tracks from the CD also received airplay and widespread recognition on several internet radio stations. ‘The Worst Photograph Ever Taken Of Me’ hit #5 on MP3unsigned.com operating out of the U.K. and the CD reached #3 on the Pop Album charts of MP3.com.au based In Australia.
When he wasn’t touring Ontario, most of 2006 was spent writing and recording the next james clark institute record. ‘The Fatal Mallet’ promises to be an exorcism of emotions related to the end of a long term relationship. ‘Lake Monona Last Night’, a song from the upcoming CD has already received airplay on campus radio in Madison, Wisconsin.
Look for a mid 2007 release.
In addition to his performances as a singer/songwriter, James can frequently be seen and heard as a drummer for a number of local Toronto acts.
