Singer / Songwriter
The minute Cliff Dorsey launches into a song there’s little doubt he’s meant to be a huge sensation on the country music scene. His rich baritone squeezes every ounce of emotion out of a song, taking the listener on a journey with him through heartache, regret, or lovesick blues as he weaves his lyrical tales on stage.
The hardworking Florida native has been playing and singing for years, carving out a career through sweat, passion, and ingenuity and building a steady fan base throughout the Southeast bit by bit as he electrified venues both big and small. He first began playing guitar at 15 and at first shied away from the spotlight, until he heard Josh Turner’s classic, “Long Black Train,” and decided he wanted to reach people in the same stirring way.
Honing his skills performing in church at first, Cliff quickly moved on to clubs and festivals and anywhere else he could find to play, and has become a seasoned professional adept at entertaining crowds of any size in the years since. With independent albums like 321, which yielded the fan favorite, “If Whiskey Was A Woman,” and his most recent collection, Hurricane Blues, featuring the aptly titled, “Honky Tonk Dream”— a rolling, retro-tinged track about the ups and downs of chasing the troubadour’s dream, Cliff is poised and ready to make his break on today’s country scene as one of its brightest new stars.
