Cliff grew up listening to all kinds of American Roots music thanks to a sharing father who had a deep appreciation for the same and a great music collection! From a singing family, he was coaxed to join in with the family quartet as a child and has been singing ever since. While attending WVU, he had the good fortune to play and sing in a band of talented musicians who shared passion and respect for hardcore bluegrass. Originally from West Virginia, Cliff is proud to call the Old North State home for the past dozen or so years. You may have seen him out and about singing with the Piedmont Melody Makers, the Rye Mountain Boys or starring as Hank Williams in the Cape Fear Regional Theatre production of Lost Highway.
