Kerry Patrick Clark: His Story, My Story

Singer, songwriter and storyteller Kerry Patrick Clark has certainly had a lot of time to master the art of storytelling.  After all, his lifelong influences include some of the best: his parents, who encouraged him with his first musical instruments; musicians such as John Denver, Harry Chapin and James Taylor; and his work with the New Christy Minstrels.

And now, with 5 albums behind him, Clark tackles his most ambitious project yet – telling the story of Jesus from perhaps one of the most unique of perspectives one could imagine – his own.  The result is his 6th and newest album, titled His Story, My Story, which most appropriately launched during this Easter holiday season.  By connecting his own life journey to that of Jesus, Clark has put together a collection of poignant songs that we can all relate to, as we reflect on our own life’s journey.

Clark is also quite the entertainer, as was demonstrated during his KC Cafe House Concert (listen in here), on a recent visit to Kansas City.  There, we had the chance to experience first-hand the unique connection between story and song.

Recently, KC Cafe Radio Music Director Kathy Forste had the chance to catch up with Kerry via Skype.  They talked about what inspired him to produce such an ambitious album.  They also talked about the House Concert, and we get some insight and great advice from a masterful performer and storyteller on how to relate to an audience and draw a crowd in to your performance.
