New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media)
While traveling in Jerusalem recently, singer/songwriter Clarence Bucaro was struck by the dichotomy of the old-world majesty of an ancient city and the squalor of refugee camps along the walls of the West Bank. His moving, truth-seeking 5th album 'Walls Of The World' features 11 original songs that ruminate on the divisiveness of walls, literal and metaphoric, inspired by his travels, controversial authors, the birth of his son and the death of two US photographers in Libya during the Arab Spring.

'Walls Of The World' is an ambitious collection of twangy Americana, roots, rock and soul produced by Hector
Castillo (David Bowie, Björk, Lou Reed) and Chocolate Genius. "Two Men Down" was written in homage to the bravery and legacy of photographers Tim Hetherington and Chris Hondros, killed in Libya during the Arab Spring
uprisings, its raw twang rings loudly. "Rose Of Jericho" is devastating in its slow ballad crawl and "Dangerous Secret" pulses with rootsy rock urgency. Clarence's soulful, literate take on Americana has garnered him comparisons to Jackson Browne and Van Morrison.
'Walls Of The World' is out April 3 on 20/20 Records. Clarence is a road warrior who built his career touring 300 days a year and has shared stages with Aaron
Neville, The Blind Boys of Alabama, Chrissie Hynde and the North Mississippi Allstars
