Testimonials

I have had the privilege of working with some of the best people in the music industry.

I worked with Clif on ‘The Places You Find Love’ and on numerous other recordings we did for Qwest. Nadia Boulanger once told me, ‘Your music can never be any more nor any less than you are as a human being’ and Clif is a beautiful human being and it’s reflected in his songs.

Quincy Jones

 

Clif has a gift for making artists feel comfortable and getting the best out of them.

Kara DioGuardi

 

Clif is one of my favourite people to write with, his talent is incredible, and he’s a wonderful person.
