Posted on May 5, 2016 08:00am

Gary Clark Jr. was a double threat on "Help Wanted" (Episode 22, Season 2 of NCIS: New Orleans)—not as a villain, but playing a street musician. The guitar virtuoso displayed both musical and acting chops during the episode. He jammed with his hits "Don't Owe You A Thang" and "Church," and portrayed an eyewitness to a nefarious crime.

Known for rocketing out of the Austin music scene, Gary says that he was also influenced by a pair of New Orleans mainstays: Lonnie Johnson and The Meters. He also loves to perform in the Crescent City at Jazzfest and Preservation Jazz Hall.

In an exclusive for, Gary performed a moving rendition of "Church" while on the NCIS: New Orleans set. Enjoy this bonus video, which wasn't aired with the episode, right here:
