CLIFF is the artist name of Cliff Beeckman, a Belgian musician (piano, vocals…). He was born on the 8th of March 1985 in Ghent (Belgium), where he still lives.
Being named after the famous musician Cliff Richard, it should not come as a surprise that Cliff was quickly fascinated by music. At the age of 12 Cliff already dreamed of making his own music, and recorded his very first song on a simple cassette tape player. However, it was only during his university studies (Cliff holds a master in computer science and philosophy) that he learned to play the piano and started making his own music.
His debut single Second Life and an instrumental bonus track Autumn Tears, both mixed and produced by Reinhard Vanbergen, were released on the 21st of November 2019 on all major online platforms (see links in the top menu above).
As a musician CLIFF is highly influenced by artist like Coldplay, Radiohead, Ólafur Arnalds, Sigur Ròs, Sleeping At Last, Keane and many others. Melancholy and a clear passion for touching lyrics and catchy sounds forms the leitmotiv throughout most of his songs.
