BRYCE CLIFFORD &
KUTX Austin Music Minute
Brother Superior put the song back at the center of rock and roll. If they were hair-rock assholes, they would be cranking out passionate Americana anthems that blare from the car windows of teenagers across the states. But instead, Clifford's indie-rock influence and post-punk attitude have brought us much more interesting and nuanced songs. In his now-home of Austin Texas, Bryce Clifford has brought together a kick ass band that “perform with a ‘wheels might come off’ intensity”**. These 4 full-time musicians are immersed nightly in Austin's vast music scene. Their Texan-everyman accessibility belies their world-class talent and experience. These musicians bring with them influences of blue-grass, classical, honky-tonk, old school soul… name it - you might hear it. That said, a Brother Superior set is dominated with driving melodic post-punk rock songs that get stuck in your head, are played with joy, and have a touch of nostalgia that feels right and hits home.
"Clifford has a terrific voice that in the beautiful ballads such as "Last Call in The Northeast" and the epic "One More Shot" touches the heart and leaves a lot of fans with their mouths wide open. They don't take a second seat to any artist with the Replacements-esque 'Woodstock'."

Hail Tapes *9 of 10 stars "The quality of the songs and playing never falters over the 40 plus minutes. 'Last Call In The North East' with it's haunting harmonica, guitar and lyrics clearly show that they have the talent to make their mark. Overall a very impressive record."” - Andy Riggs, Americana UK
“You need hear Clifford's music!! You’ll be surprised by the unexpected directions it will take you and the musical pictures it paints, often filled with dark texts. ” - Freddy Celis, ROOTSTIME - Belgium
