Hello! My name is Clifford and I am a singer/songwriter, artist and music producer. I am a US/UK citizen and I grew up on a farm in rural Maryland. I speak English, French and Arabic and having lived/studied these cultures, my music often supports nuances of them. I write music incorporating my personal experiences and those I've experienced through others. Sometimes I add a little humor to my songs. I believe it's good for the soul to laugh! My musical study began with drumming at age 8, followed by the acoustic guitar. From there I began playing electric guitar, bass guitar, piano, and singing. I was performing in bands by age 12, but when I discovered my passion for languages I made that my focus in school. In college I learned Arabic hand drumming and as a language student, music became my chill time... I couldn't have gotten through school without it. After college I began a Twitch Channel where I played many of my favorite cover songs for fellow players. Eventually I became a Twitch Affiliate with nearly 2000 followers, most of whom followed me for my singing. One thing lead to another and here I am, loving what I'm doing and reaching out to people through music. I do not profess to know all the ins and outs of the music industry, but I am a person with the tenacity to find his way. I write, perform and produce all my music, but my goal is to work with other music professionals. Cheers!
