Clarence Bucaro

Clarence Bucaro makes his long-awaited return with his powerful new studio album Passionate Kind, released via indie 20/20 Records. Co-produced with Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams), the album gives a compelling and honest glimpse into Bucaro’s inner self; drawing in listeners with profound emotion and soul-bearing storytelling. Passionate Kind has received praise from publications like American Songwriter and Rolling Stone, who called it, “Buoyant, sometimes playful folk songwriting with a deep well of social consciousness.”

Joe Henry recently said:

Entering Clarence Bucaro’s folksy and soulful new album, ‘The Passionate Kind,’ is like coming upon a small town blinking in darkness. I felt a character introduce himself at the city limits, then bid me follow and I did: through vivid dreams and ghostly doubt; great fear and small revelations; through love both lost and found. I don’t know if the stories herein are factually true to their author, or just mystically true to our collective and shared experience. But I do know that I wholly believe the singer when these generous songs unspool, and too that I might decide to stay for a while, look for work, maybe, and a clean start. This place feels both fresh and familiar, I mean to say; inviting. And like a fella could make a whole life for himself here if he had to.”
Clarence Bucaro is an accomplished singer, songwriter & producer, art advocate, aspiring author, entrepreneur and a force in the world of music. Growing up in the country (just outside of Cleveland, Ohio) Bucaro relied on imagination and creativity to form his own adventures. At eight, he picked up a real guitar and by age ten, wrote his first song. While at university, Bucaro started a grassroots campaign and secured his first record deal with an Americana label out of Portland, Oregon. He toured with The Blind Boys of Alabama and Mavis Staples, playing to sold out theaters across America.
Fast forward fifteen years, eleven albums and hundreds of shows later, Bucaro continues to share his own voice through his literate lyrics and carefully crafted melodies. His forthcoming album Passionate Kind was recorded at The Loft in Chicago with co-producer Tom Schick (Wilco, Ryan Adams) and features sensational artists Chris Farney (Josh Radin) on drums, Scott Ligon (NRBQ, Mavis Staples) on piano and bass, and Doug Pettibone (Marianne Faithful, Lucinda Williams) on guitar.
