Thank You For Your Grammy Consideration! Dynamic Duets (Vol. 1)

Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Clif is a vocalist, songwriter and educator who’s inimitable sound, passionate performances and dedication to his craft has sustained a remarkable career that spans the decades earning him critical acclaim, the respect of his peers and an extremely loyal following. Discovered by Bobby McFerrin in the fall of 1980, the Harlem-born vocalist’s 2016 debut solo album Welcome to My World is proof he’s just getting started.  Earning him Grammy recognition,Welcome To My World featured some of the greatest talents in the business unite in support of Payne from guest appearances by original En Vogue singer Maxine Jones and Midnight Star’s Reggie Calloway, to production dream team Preston Glass (R&B Songwriter Hall of Famer) and Larry Batiste (Grammy orchestra music director). But it was the album’s chart-topping debut single “No Payne, No Gain” featuring the legendary Freda Payne ("Band of Gold") that really put the album on the map, proving an international sensation, topping Great Britain’s soul charts, receiving the title of UK’s Soul Song of the Year, and receiving Grammy recognition in 2017 for Best R&B Song.  Included in this new UK compilation of contemporary classics . . .
Freda and I are so happy to be in great company on this newly-released album!"  CP
