Blake Clifford / Bio

No finished productions here, just reference tracks. I am currently working on recording material for an EP.
Wrote, performed, and recorded the background music and background vocals for a TERRIFIC tune, "She Will Find Her Way" written by Jason Murphy of "America Street" (check them out locally in NW Indiana or here on Reverbnation).

I grew up in Chicagoland listening to a diverse selection of seventies artists on Chicago’s then mega-station, WLS Radio, forming a love for many styles of music early on in my life. Continuing in this tradition throughout the eighties, nineties, and right into the current century, my influences range from classical to heavy metal right on to modern jazz. My writing style combines these elements with my love for creating harmony-laden power-pop guitar-rock. Phew, now that’s a category! A new genre, I think not, but this meld of rock-style guitar and harmony-laden pop music has become my signature style.

I studied music formally and was awarded the Presidential Scholarship in Classical Guitar Performance from the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago and received another full-tuition performance scholarship from the Chicago Musical College to study classical guitar with Paul Henry. I attended many classical guitar master classes, most notably the International GuitarFest at the Boston Conservatory of Music studying with Hubert Kappel, Bruce Holzman, and Stephen Aron to name a few. Although I continue to write in my signature harmony-laden power-pop guitar-rock style, every-so-often I enjoy intertwining more complex guitar work into his music.
