Long time singer/songwriter Joe Welsh had spent years writing and performing before diving into Lucky Man Clark. But one day in 2001, as he was sitting in his unfinished studio waiting for a delivery, he started writing rootsy rock songs. Five days and 17 songs later, he contacted session guitarist Kenny Vaughan and the two searched out a backing band. Drummer Paul Griffith, bassist Dave Jasques, and keyboardist Steve Conn signed up, and the band recorded a batch of tracks soon after. Jerry Dale McFadden and Jeff Armstrong both recorded keyboard parts, and several guest performers stopped in for a part in the mix. The final results were released under the band name Lucky Man Clark and the album (Seaworthy) appeared in the summer of 2002.
