I'm a self taught, American, multi-instrumentalist. Mainly, I'm a songwriter who creates intensely grooving instrumentals as well. I've been writing and recording music for 18 years. I like to record at home with the technical help of Logic, Mac Book Pro, Apogee and nice condeser mics.

Biography

I'm an explorer and a craftsman of the many different musical methodologies of writing, recording and producing music.

I grew up in a very small, rural and poor town in Alabama where I developed an immense love for rhythm, soul, honesty and feeling in music.

I've been writing and recording for 18 years and during this time I've had the pleasure of working and playing with many great artists from Jennyanykind, Sunset, Monahans, Willie Nelson, Luna, Spoon, The Frydaddys, The Cunning Runts, The Summer Wardrobe, King Tears and Athens V Sparta.

Some of my influences are Beck, Neil Young, Ray Davies, The Beatles, Badfinger, Star Fucker, Simply Saucer, Can, Pere Ubu, and many, many more.

I love listening to and discovering new and old music.

I sometimes wear my heart on my sleeve.

Lyrics

Floating in the wind

Written By: Cliff Brown Jr.

Floating in the wind
Floating in the wind
Floating when will you
come down again?

And who knows where you'll land
Maybe in your head
Maybe in your bed
Maybe you won't
come down again.

Floating in the wind
Floating in the wind
Floating when will you
come down again?

New Year's Eve

Written By: Cliff Brown Jr.

I bet you look so beautiful tonight
with eyeliner and red lipstick, fresh on your lips like you're turning a trick. I don't know if I'm getting through, your hair's like the ocean, your skin's like the moon, like the moon.

All the things I've done for you
All the words I've spoken are true
All of my heart I'll give it to you
But all of the parts you're playing are cool.

All of our time deconstrcuted like, well thought out rhymes, like the yellow lines and I bet you light up the darkest moods, but you're never there when I'm calling on you. No words, no love means no nothing at all. I've said enough won't you catch my fall, catch my fall?

All the things I've done for you
All the words I've spoken are true
All of my heart I'll give it to you
But all of the parts you're playing are cool.

Sleeping Beauty

Written By: Cliff Brown Jr.

I've never felt anything like when you touch me. I've never heard brown eyes sing like when you look at me. I've never dreamed, dreams like I dream when you're in my dreams. I've never seen a smile so pretty like when you smile at me, smile at me.

Sleeping beauty will you sleep with me in my dreams? I'm getting on like the words of this song don't you know what I mean, what I mean?

I've never known time to stand still like when you spend your time with me. I've never been this happy like when you're here with me. I'm just a fool, sappy and needy, that's what you'd like to think of me. It might be true, it's all for you don't you see what I mean, what I mean?

Sleeping beauty will you visit me in my dreams? I'm getting on like the words of this song, don't you know what I mean, what I mean?
