Cliff Hedley


Cliff returned from the UK at the end of 2003, in order to complete an NZ On Air funded single 'Overcoat'. This has since been produced by Andrew Buckton at Studio 203. Andrew also played bass and guitar on the song, with Stephen Small playing keyboards/organs, and Jay Foulkes providing drums and percussion. Cliff played guitar as well as providing the vocals.

As well as performing as a solo act, Cliff has established an Auckland-based band. This includes Brent Martin on drums/percussion, Andre Birt on guitar and AJ Hay, who plays keyboard and provides backing vocals.

The end of 2004 saw completion of the video for 'Overcoat', with director/producer James Brown.'Overcoat' appeared on the soundtrack for a film produced in 2005 by Karl Burnett.

Cliff and the band are out playing around Auckland. Catch them live, or check out his website to listen to their new album, 'Sink & Swim', which was recorded from mid-2005 and completed in early 2006. The 'Overcoat' single is there, along with nine other tracks being played by the Cliff Hedley Band.

In 2007, the next single "Indecision" received an NZ On Air video grant - check out the result at www.myspace.com/cliffhedley. Indecision has received airplay on a number of stations around New Zealand, including Kiwi FM and a spot on The Rock's "Off the Record".

Band Members:
Cliff Hedley (vocals, guitar)

    Demo - recorded in London, sounds quite different these days. Hopefully we'll have the new demo version up soon, but interesting all the same - lots of work on samples by producer Adam Beath

  • Goodbye Again

    Demo - Written just before Cliff left London, a mellowish number about moving on when you need to make a change for the better.

  • Grey

    Demo - one of our favourites to play live. Starts mellow and builds through the song, rocking out with a big guitar solo from Andre. Have a listen.

  • Indecision

    Demo - keep an eye out for a higher-quality version when it gets some more mixing. Kind of an upbeat track about cruising through life and figuring out what you want...

I'm starting to upload demo mp3s - let us know what you think, as we'll be deciding on and recording single number two soon. I'll put more tracks up as we finish the demos for them. The Overcoat single is available on www.amplifier.co.nz if you want to listen - the high-quality full version you'll have to pay for, but you can check out a lower-res version for free.

Cheers, Cliff

No worries
Coming tonight? it'll be fun tonight we've got Jamie, formerly from Naquadah filling in with us. Will be cool to have someone who moves about on the other side of the stage and also been fun jamming with him the last couple of weeks.

Good luck with search for drummer.

Hey Cliff
Been meaning to get in touch with you re, drummer situation.
If you haven't already, contact Brent Martin. He is a seriously awesome drummer who used to play with an Auckland band called Killt.
Contact details are as follows

PH 09 262 7007

FAX 09 262 2182

EMAIL [email protected]

Brent had an ad on nzmusic.com a while back and to be honest i don't know if he is still looking but still worth checking out.

Also if you haven't yet, have a look on the rock shop's classified board. Bands.co.nz and musicmates are two other sites out there worth checking through.

All the best dude, liked your show at the green the other week!

Mike Cains has unfortunately left us for greener pastures in Dunedin, which means we are looking for a drummer/percussionist to fill his talented shoes. We're Auckland-based if there are any drummers interested around these parts - I'll have some demo mp3s uploaded soon to listen to. Cheers, Cliff
