Pre Order "Pendulum"


Clarence Bucaro Featured in Rolling Stone! – which premiered the track “Strangers” – observed, “the 10 tracks on Pendulum come to life through Bucaro's intimate literate lyrics and velvet-and-molasses vocals, with the title track capturing the troubling yin and thrilling yang of romantic pursuits. An achingly realized display of the former comes courtesy of Bucaro's collaboration on ‘Strangers,’ with the song's co-writer and duet partner, Allison Moorer.”

New Video for "Tragedy"

The video for “Tragedy” was shot near the historic Naumburg Bandshell in New York City’s Central Park. It is the first-ever music video from award-winning documentary filmmakers Micah Garen and Marie-Helene Carleton (Light on the Sea), who founded Four Corners Media and co-wrote the book American Hostage, which documented Garen’s abduction by militants in Iraq and the battle for his release.

Praise for "Pendulum"

In an album review, observed “much like Paul Simon and James Taylor, he¹s able to offer up optimism and circumspect all within the space of a single song, enticing and entrancing his listeners all in the same breath… this is the kind of album upon which reputations are built.”  

PopMatters praised “Tragedy,” the first single, as “achingly gorgeous…a song full of heart and feeling.” noted, “The joys and heartbreaks of life tend to ebb and flow at their own pace; that subject is addressed by singer/songwriter/guitarist Clarence Bucaro throughout his aptly-titled new release Pendulum...When that pendulum of life swings to a rough spot though, Bucaro is no defeatist, and that’s especially noticeable in the lyrics for new song ‘Tragedy’ where he refuses to get sucked into a lover’s constant drama.”


"Bucaro‘s songs possess a craftsmanlike sophistication in their seeming simplicity and spareness. That’s something only the most talented songwriters achieve with lots of practice."
