Jay Clifford Solo Tour
For over a decade, Jump, Little Children built a huge grassroots fan-base through nonstop touring. They released three LPs, including 1998's Magazine (Atlantic/Breaking Records), which contained the adult-alternative hit "Cathedrals" (Elton John personally contacted the band to express his admiration of the song); 2001's Vertigo (independently released); and their last studio album, 2004's Between the Dim and the Dark (Brash Records). Additionally, over the past four years, Clifford has co-written songs with Howie Day, Sean Lennon, Australian sensation Missy Higgins, Robert Randolph, and Mandi Perkins.
Driving Blind was recorded at Swing House Studios with producer Warren Huart (Hot Hot Heat, The Thrills, Joe Strummer). The impressive crew of musicians on Driving Blind include drummer Travis McNabb (Better Than Ezra, Sugarland), bassist Dan Rothchild (Beck, Fiona Apple), and guitarists Dave Levita (Alanis Morissette, Daniel Powter) and Greg Suran (Sunny Day Real Estate, Jewel). The record was mixed by Mark Needham (The Killers, Chris Isaak).
