Cliff Beach - The Gospel According to Cliff Beach (LP)
Cliff Beach returns home to his roots to record his first, full-length solo concept album. After the release of his last two EP’s, this highly anticipated album, entitled “The Gospel According to Cliff Beach”, is his opus. The Rhythm Section was recorded live at a church in his home state of Maryland, and Beach adds an old-school approach to his work including backup vocals from a Gospel Choir from Compton that was later overdubbed back in LA. With his plan to unleash his brand of Gospel-influenced funk on the world, Cliff says “I grew up in MD, in church, playing Gospel music. My music is secular, but incorporates a lot of call and response aspects, with the gritty vocal style of Gospel music, often having religious overtones, like in my songs: “Joy”, “Delilah”, “Hold on Me”, and “Save My Soul.” Many of the funk/soul artists I listen to: James Brown, Aretha Franklin, Sam Cooke, Marvin Gaye, and Al Green, all grew up singing and playing Gospel music and I will continue that legacy.” The album is produced by Cliff Beach, and engineered by MD-based and ASCAP award-winning, gospel songwriter, and engineer, Darien Dennis, with additional engineering by Tim Hall and Mister Rocks.
Funk music artist Cliff Beach has been performing live for more than 17 years in Los Angeles. The Berklee-trained singer/songwriter/keyboardist/producer/arranger and DC native has created a style of music he coins as “Nu-funk”, a hybrid of soul, traditional R&B, funk and neo-soul which he performs regularly throughout Southern California and abroad. In 2013, Beach independently released the highly anticipated “Who the Funk is Cliff Beach?” EP; which was nominated for three LA Music Awards including “Record of the Year” and one Hollywood Music in Media award. He received national press in a featured live review in Music Connection Magazine in Nov. 2013 and was a featured performer at TEDx Napa Valley in March 2014. Cliff released a follow-up, unplugged EP in September 2014 entitled, “Stripped Down & Unplugged.” He released a single in early 2016 “One Day It’ll all be Over (Vocal Loops Edition) inwhich the video was endorsed by TC Helicon, makers of the Ditto Mic Looping Pedal.
