Cliff Beach, like many other artists, grew up playing music and came from a musical family. His story is like his musical idols in that he grew up in church playing music and entertaining at family functions.
His musical journey flourished once he attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. There Cliff honed his singing, songwriting and keyboard skills, leading up to his stellar performances in all-star showcases including: "The Singers' Showcase”, “The Tower of Power Ensemble Showcase” and “James Brown Revue”.
After graduating in 2002, Cliff set out for LA and conquered the stage with his band "The Moon Crickets" releasing 2 independent albums in the process and headlining notably at BB Kings Blues Club, The Hard Rock Cafe Outdoor Concert Series and "Make an Impact".
After Moon Crickets disbanded in 2007, Cliff went on a series of contracts for Holland America Cruise Lines and upon returning started playing solo shows in LA and doing some studio recordings for other artists.
Currently Cliff Beach has a residency at Room 5 in Hollywood as part of Poet Roni Girl's Acoustically Speaking, a singer-songwriter showcase. He also has formed a new band under his name "Cliff Beach" which is an eclectic mixture of funk, soul and blues.
Cliff has his sights set on licensing instrumental tracks of his music while gaining a steady fan base through live performances. Cliff believes in moving to his own funky groove and that music is all about entertainment. Like his main influence James Brown, Cliff wants to claim the throne of being the “hardest working man “in all forms of entertainment and he plans on doing it his own way. And that is sure to be funky!
