My name is Clifton. I have performed as a solo artist for many years, but it is certainly not a solo effort. I have worked with many talented people and look forward to collaborating much more in the future Over the last ten years, I have written over one hundred songs, many of which I perform regularly. Early on I was influenced by acoustic artists like Dashboard Confessional, Jack Johnson, and City and Color, which has given me an affinity for the acoustic guitar in my own writing, but I love so many styles of music, so I try not to confine myself to any particular style or genre. My influences range widely, including artists like Mumford & Sons, The Avett Brothers, Muse, The Dear Hunter, Grouplove, Manchester Orchestra, and some classic artists like CCR, The Beatles, and Queen.
