Pat Clifton is a Canadian songwriter, producer, and musician who makes sense of the world through intimate, sometimes unapologetic, storytelling. Pairing well with a distinct voice and layered lyrics, Clifton often makes use the piano to reinforce his craft. His songwriting began with poetry before he started writing rhymes, and he quickly found his rhythm in the world of hip-hop. On his 2017 project, Everybody’s Still Asleep, Clifton collaborated with fellow Canadian music producer Blüme to create a collection of songs that don’t shy away from the ugly, yet the sometimes wonderful truth that is the human experience. Pat Clifton and Blüme continued to work together through their ambitious #12for18 project, releasing a song each month for all of 2018. His talent isn’t lip service, either; with a bachelor’s degree in music production and unequivocal dedication to his craft, Pat Clifton’s songs are made up of music you won’t forget.
