Cliff Westfall (from the album Baby You Win available as a self-release)
When Cliff Westfall made the move form his Kentucky home to New York, he packed a satchel full of Classic Country influences. Baby You Win, the latest release from Cliff Westfall, presents the songman as a Country crooner. The backbeat on the title track chugs like a freight train with the throttle down as Baby You Win plays the percentages on staccato guitar chords in “The Odds Were Good” and spins tunes for honky tonk dance floor with the admissions of “I’ll Play the Fool”, tenderly offering a slow one with “A Lie If You Must”. Beyond dedication to classic country, Cliff Westfall pays attention to the non-musical pieces of his songs feeling that ‘the humor of people like Roger Miller, Don Gibson, and Del Reeves is neglected nowadays’.
Cliff Westfall bares his heart, using the sound of vintage Country music with the heartbreak head scratcher “It Hurt Her to Hurt Me” as he lays out his resume of deeds done with “The End of the Line” and stomps out a painful past with thick twang in “More and More” as Baby You Win holds up a memory to mirror in “The Man I Used to Be”.
