Brother Superior / Bio

Bryce stubbornly refuses to write a bio and pull quotes for his band. So he asked me*, and this is my best shot:

"Clifford leads a heavy hitting band with his rueful and acerbic lyrics and bar room scarred vocals.” NOW Magazine, Toronto

Bryce Clifford & Brother Superior put the song back at the center of rock and roll. If they were hair-rock a-holes, they would be cranking out passionate Americana anthems that blare from the car windows of teenagers across the states. But instead, Clifford's indie-rock influence and post-punk attitude have brought us much more interesting and nuanced songs. In his now-home of Austin Texas, Bryce Clifford has brought together a kick ass band that “perform with a ‘wheels might come off’ intensity”**. These 4 full-time musicians are immersed nightly in Austin's vast music scene. Their Texan-everyman accessibility belies their world-class talent and experience. These musicians bring with them influences of blue-grass, classical, honky-tonk, old school soul… name it - you might hear it. That said, a BC+BS set is dominated with driving melodic post-punk rock songs that get stuck in your head, are played with joy, and have a touch of nostalgia that feels right and hits home.

The penultimate track "Last Call in the Northeast" with it's haunting guitar and lyrics clearly shows that they have the talent to make their mark... a very impressive record."” Andy Riggs - Americana UK

“Bryce Clifford has a terrific voice that touches the heart and leaves a lot of fans with their mouths wide open. " Wiebren Rijkeboer - Netherlands Alt-Country Music
