ABOUT & REVIEWS


ABOUT & REVIEWS


Cliff Ritchey gathers his songwriting inspiration from the simple country life he surrounds himself with in Markleville, Indiana. His desire is to connect with people on a deeper, more vulnerable level through his music. Cliff's writing career took off in 1999 as a rock & roll front man for the band AMDrive. His band was awarded the opportunity to be part of the American Music Awards Competition as one of the Top Ten Unsigned Bands featuring his song "Better Off Just Me”. Since then, Cliff’s musical journey has taken many exciting turns. In 2004 he released his first solo album This Is Front, followed by All Kidding Aside (2006), Seasons (2013) and most recently, The Second Half (2017) featuring the song "Honey Baby” which won 1st place in the Chris Austin Songwriting Competition (featured judges Andrew Marlin, Rodney Crowell, & Johnny Williams) and 3rd place in the International Songwriting Competition (featured judges included Tom Waits, Lorde, Ziggy Marley & and others). Stylistically Cliff's songwriting ranges from acoustic heartfelt Americana/Folk tunes to songs with complex progressions and melodies that fit tightly inside a simple acoustic production. The Second Half is steeped in organic American musical greats like Johnny Cash and Ryan Adams, as well as one of Canada's finest exports, Ron Sexsmith. Cliff has also served as a touring guitarist for Jon McLaughlin, Josh Kaufman (winner of The Voice Season 6) and Latin recording artist Jaci Velasquez in addition to raising a family and maintaining a busy schedule as a commercial photographer.

"Cliff is an absolute pleasure to work with. His performances and spirit are authentic. Mix an exceptional, multi-talented recording artist with a super likable next-door neighbor type and you get Cliff. I appreciate his follow-though and commitment to getting his customers their desired result." -- Kris Harter (Owner, Belgian Horse Winery)

"The unbeatable combination of laid back and high energy is what you will find with Cliff Ritchey! This one of a kind, amazing musician is sure to keep the entire crowd happy. This classical rock genius always keeps everyone begging for more at The Stable!!" --Missy Denny (Owner, The Stable)

"Cliff has a reoccurring schedule with us because he is considered one of our premier performing artist. He has a great energy and a good following, he plays alone, with his wife or with his band and in all cases the crowds love him." --Bill Lett (Owner/ Designer, Elm Street Brewing)
