The fall release of singer, songwriter, and guitarist Jay Clifford’s first official solo album Driving Blind marked a strong and elegant step in a new direction for the local icon (formerly of longtime local band Jump, Little Children). Clifford took his time recording it in L.A. with producer Warren Huart (known best for his work with Howie Day), and the resulting collection features some of his strongest, most cohesive work in recent years. He did manage to retain that signature “breathy” singing style. Clifford followed through with several tours backed by old friends and bandmates (from Jump, Slow Runner, and The AstroJet).
