Album Notes
It’s hard to pin a label on the “style” of Cliff’s songwriting and performing. Heavily influenced by country greats like Tom T. Hall, Merle Haggard and Johnny Cash as well as rock / folk writers like Bob Dylan and “father of bluegrass” Bill Monroe, he learned early that a good song is felt as much as it is heard. “A song is a story,” Cliff says, “and every good story has a way of bringing out our emotions.”

Cliff’s voice is as honest as his songwriting. Earthy and unvarnished, he sings the way he writes, with a visceral touch that brings the characters in his songs to life in the mind of the listener.

Cliff’s songs are story songs, and a live performance (or a listen to one of his CDs) is a ride on an emotional roller-coaster. His first collection “The Dogwoods are White,” for example, takes the listener from the hilarious shock of meeting someone from the past who "is not the guy she used to be" to the tearful tragedy of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; from an old time murder ballad to a tender pre-wedding promise to the love of the highway.

Whatever the style, Cliff's music is unique and his style memorable.
