DUBLIN BASED ALT-POP ARTIST

Stevie Cliff has served a varied musical apprenticeship. The twenty-something Dublin native has plyed his trade as a drummer, guitarist, keyboard player & singer in various different bands over the past ten years.

After a year spent soaking up the sounds of NYC Stevie returned to Dublin reinvigorated and quickly caught the attention of labels, radio stations and gig promoters alike. A spate of self-produced recordings earnt him a run of appearances opening for  many established Irish Acts such as Paddy Casey, Mick Flannery, The 4 of Us, Aslan & Declan O’Rourke.

In 2015 Stevie teamed up with experienced Cork based producer Ciaran O’Shea (Toy Solider, Cycelfly, The Frank & Walters) . The subsequent recordings are much more electronically influenced than Cliff’s own productions and definitely mark a shift in musical direction for the artist.

Debut single proper “Burn Baby Burn” was released in February 2016 to rave reviews. The track combines a jerky blend of synths and guitars sprinkled with intelligent lyrics that instantly grab the attention of the listener. 2017 will see further releases and a debut EP.
