Singer/Songwriter and Master of Social Work student George-Cliff Hudson has been writing and playing music for over ten years, with a musical styling ranging anywhere from standard country, to a “boot through the door” style of country rock. While it has been said that life imitates art, in his case Geore-Cliff’s art is his life. George-Cliff takes the personal experiences that have helped shape his life and writes with an honest outlook and gratitude for the simple act of being alive.
The ballad “Send My Love” was written by George-Cliff for his wife while he was in Iraq as an Infantry Squad Leader in The United States Marine Corps. A poignant song of longing, it has both helped others dealing with deployments and separation, and afforded George-Cliff the opportunity to share his music with audiences at venues and military bases throughout the east coast and all over the southeast.
George-Cliff has recently play at Boot Fest, a benefit for the Arkansas Fallen Firefighters Memorial, a bronze sculpture destined for the state Capitol grounds and played at War Memorial Stadium in a concert for returning service men and women and their families. George-Cliff is currently working as a research assistant with the Veteran’s Administration through the UAMS Psychiatric Research Institute while he is pursuing his MSW degree.
In a word, George-Cliff writes about appreciation. From the exuberance of “Country Fried Pedigree” to the simple celebration of “Doin’ Fine Tonight,” George-Cliff’s outlook is clear: “Say thank you Lord, we’re alive and doin’ fine tonight.” George-Cliff wants to bring the type of music that makes you raise your drink and appreciate the moment…all the while screaming at the top of your lungs.
