Gene Clark was an American singer-songwriter and responsible for The Byrds' greatest hits, including "I'll Feel A Whole Lot Better", "She Don't Care About Time", "Eight Miles High" and "Set You Free This Time". After making music in several group formations furthermore with The Gosdin Brothers, Doug Dillard and Carla Olson, and recording several albums with members of The Byrds over the years, Clark embarked on a solo career that encompassed heavily orchestrated treasures like "No Other" and folk-focused "White Light". Through it all and in every setting, Clark's clear and true vocals, his poetic turns of phrase, and his skill at weaving melancholy melodies never wavered. His body of work is impressive and, long after his passing in 1991, has remained influential to each new generation of pop artists who followed in his wake.
