On his new album, Passionate Kind, Ohio native Clarence Bucaro sings, "Where I live is who I am." Since he's lived in New Orleans, Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York City, you could conjecture he has a multiple personality. More likely, he's cultivated some good life experience which goes into his songs. And on his new album he also drew on an immersion in classic literature, painitng, and music.
Rolling Stone praised his "buoyant, sometimes playful folk songwriting with a deep well of social consciousness." Bucaro brought bassist Byron Issacs, of Ollabelle and Lumineers fame, to accompany him on three songs from the new album in this session in Studio A.
