Gary Clark began his career as singer-songwriter-instrumentalist in late '80s band Danny Wilson. He penned the band's 1987 international hit "Mary's Prayer". Now considered classic, it still regularly re-enters the top 100 airplay charts in the UK.
After the band split in 1990 he moved into the areas of songwriting and production for other artists. He continues to do this today, and has worked with, amongst many others: Natalie Imbruglia, Liz Phair, Lloyd Cole, Melanie C, Jack Savoretti, Emma Bunton, The Veronicas, Skin, Delta Goodrem, McFly, Demi Lovato, Ferras, Lawson, Gin Wigmore, The Wanted and Skye (Morcheba). In 2014 he had two of his biggest international successes to date with Kim Cesarion's "Undressed" and Alex Hepburn's "Under" both of which were top five singles across Europe and number 1s in more than one country.
His songs have been used frequently in film and television including There's Something about Mary, Nightwatch, Jawbreaker, Wild Things, Charlie’s Angels, Grey's Anatomy, 666 Park Avenue, Underbelly, Teen Wolf and Pretty Little Liars.
Clark has 3 BMI awards, has won Nordoff-Robbins/PRS songwriter of the year and has an Ivor Novello nomination for Best song musically and lyrically for “Mary's Prayer”.
He recently wrote the original songs for John Carney’s new movie “Sing Street”.
