J. M. Clifford Record Release at the Gowanus Dredgers Boathouse
Please join us to celebrate the release of J.M. Clifford‘s latest album, on Saturday October 2nd, with a free open streets performance, for the public to enjoy.
New York based singer-songwriter and bluegrass musician J.M. Clifford was coping with the recent death of a parent and a divorce when the global pandemic hit. Quarantined in his Brooklyn apartment, On a Saturday Night, a record about loss, acceptance and salvation, was born.
On a Saturday Night was recorded at The Bunker Studio in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Masked up and sanitized, the bluegrass community that lifted Clifford back up on his feet was now helping him put down roots in the genre that he credits with helping him through some very dark times. Co-Produced by Clifford, Ron Pope, and Nicole Cosme, the tracks range from traditional bluegrass romps to delicate and sparse ballads with introspective lyrics. The songs address his personal struggles head on, eventually finding some much needed closure and acceptance.
