In a genre often saturated with the familiar, Cliff & Susan, the dynamic married duo from Little Rock, Arkansas, are poised to shake up the country music landscape with their debut album, "Fiddle & Keys," set for release on October 27, 2023. This is not just another country album; it's a seven-year musical journey that captures the essence of this extraordinary duo. On October 6, the duo will release a single from the album, "Neon Dreams," offering fans a taste of their fresh new sound.
A Unique Blend That's All Their Own
The album features 12 meticulously crafted songs, blending classic country with rocking piano, guitar, and fiddle riffs. Susan describes it as a "melting pot of influences, storytelling, and high-energy live performances." With Cliff taking the reins on arranging, playing most of the instruments, and producing the majority of the songs, "Fiddle & Keys" stands as a testament to the duo's collaborative spirit and shared musical vision.
What Cliff & Susan Say
Cliff, the multi-talented musician and producer behind the album, shares, "We've been performing together for seven years, and this album truly represents what we're capable of. It's fun, heartfelt, and real."
"It's important for us to have songs that allow us to deliver a high-energy show and entertain," says Susan. "My favorite track so far is the fast, rocking 'High & Dry.' We offer a mix of tempos on the record, but I love to stretch out on the keys during performances. With Cliff's world-class musicianship on the fiddle and guitar, audiences are sure to love our original shows!"
Pre-Release and Support Levels
The album will be available on all streaming platforms starting October 27, with ‘Neon Dreams’ first dropping on October 6. Fans can pre-purchase the album through a crowdfunding initiative that offers various support levels, including signed CDs, limited edition merchandise, and Susan's original watercolor paintings.
