Yahoo LAUNCHCAST Song Of The Day-Cliff Eberhardt
Song:Will You Ever Love Again
Album:School For Love
Singer songwriter Cliff Eberhardt has been touring since he was a teen. He grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Berwyn, PA. He taught himself to play guitar, piano, bass & drums and started hanging around local folk clubs. Cliff and his brother Geoff started touring as a duo as teens. by the late 70s, he had moved to New York and worked folk clubs through the 80s while driving a cab. He started doing studio work and singing jingles. Eberhardt's big break came when Richie Havens took him on tour. This led to a contract with Windham Hill and his 1990 debut The Long Road featuring a duet with Havens. After a couple of CDs on Shanachie, Eberhardt moved to Red House Records in 1997 and still records for them. Will You Ever Love Again is from his 2002 CD School For Love and should be of interest to folk fans. He's a strong vocalist and an excellent songwriter. Eberhardt took a couple of years off after a serious car accident but he returned with the 2007 CD The High Above And The Down Below. He is currently on tour as part of Red House Records' 25th Anniversary tour. Here's Cliff Eberhardt performing Bye Bye Blackbird on Front Porch Concerts in 2006.
