Cliff Eberhardt knew by age seven that he was going to be a singer and songwriter. Living near one of the best folk clubs on the East Coast, he cut his teeth experiencing artists such as James Taylor, Bruce Springsteen, and Bonnie Raitt. At fifteen he began touring, playing the Eastern club circuit before progressing to iconic New York clubs: The Bitter End, the Speakeasy, and Folk City.
Cliff's first album, 1990’s The Long Road, was released to outstanding critical response. Cliff recorded five more albums before his critically acclaimed The High Above and the Down Below was named the #5 album of 2007 by USA Today.
In recent years, Cliff was hired by the Folger Theatre in Washington DC to write original songs for the Shakespeare classic The Taming of the Shrew, set in the old West – Deadwood style. Cliff was cast as the saloon singer, bookending scenes with his poignant songs and guitar phrases. The play was a huge success and won much critical acclaim and 7 weeks of sold-out shows.
Cliff’s peers often mine his catalog for themselves. Performers who have recorded his songs include Richie Havens, Shawn Colvin, Dar Williams, and Lucy Kaplansky. A collection of his songs has been published in The Cliff Eberhardt Songbook.
