Mike Clifford is an Austin, TX – based singer-songwriter whose music has been described as a cross between Texas honky-tonk and California country-rock. He has released 4 successful self-produced albums, charted 5 consecutive singles on the Texas Chart, and has been nominated for 4 Texas Music Awards, including 2011 Album Of The Year. His CDs have gotten great reviews in the Dallas Morning News, Best In Texas Magazine, About.com, and many other online and print publications.
Hailing from the Appalachian foothills of Virginia, but a former resident of Baltimore MD, Los Angeles CA and Dallas TX, Mike Clifford’s music is truly the sum of his travels and influences, which range from Waylon Jennings to the Eagles to Radney Foster. You can hear the influence of those artists and many more on Mike’s current CD “Backroads In Bare Feet”, which was described in its first review as "A home run". The 11 tracks on "Backroads" range from up-tempo country-rockers to heartfelt ballads, and everything in between. Along with his strong songwriting skills, Clifford’s unique vocal style sets him apart from both the traditional “hat acts” and the gravel-throated Red Dirt singers… his versatile voice is instantly recognizable, and well-suited to the wide range of styles he covers with his original music.
Clifford is also a multi-instrumentalist and played all of the bass, acoustic guitar, organ, slide guitar, and most of the lead guitar on "Backroads In Bare Feet". A Texas resident since 1991, Clifford has paid his dues over the past 20 years in Texas honky-tonks and dancehalls, performing thousands of gigs in the Lone Star State and sharing the stage with artists like Chris Young, Dale Watson, Don Walser, Johnny Bush, Lee Roy Parnell, Rick Trevino, and John Conlee. Clifford and his band currently perform all over the great state of Texas and points beyond. For more info, please visit the official website www.mikeclifford.com
