I have always been a fan of Hip-Hop with a live band for performances. With that being said, my engineer, Aric Frank, at Nova Sango Studios had the same thing in mind. After months of searching and rehearsing with new band members, Cliz & The Clockmen was finally established. The members that make up this band are Cliz (vocalist/MC), Aric Frank (bassist), George Bikos (guitarist), Paul King (guitarist), and Mr. David Curran killing it on the drums. Together, we form a band that merges many various sounds into one, “no-genred” band that takes the live setting to a whole new level. We believe in leaving people with an experience and on Sunday, May 22nd, we did just that.
Summer Survivors, a Sarasota-based Rock/Reggae band, had a release party for their new album, “Hashed Out”. We were blessed enough to have the opportunity to perform there as a band for the first time. Paul, guitarist for Cliz & The Clockmen, hooked us up with the event because he actually plays with Summer Survivors and is very instrumental in all the success they have had. This event took place at Gilligan’s Island Bar & Grill in Siesta Key, FL and had a turnout of 400+. (Find Summer Survivors at: https://itun.es/us/Djh-bb)

“Don’t Bother” Music Video was released on Monday, March 31st
This video is to the single, “Don’t Bother”, which is off of my new project, A Mirror Image. In this video, I try to portray a “day in the life” of myself. From getting up in the morning to shooting a music video. You see most of what goes on in my life on a daily basis. The song itself promotes a positive message in the sense that if you have a dream, you better stick to it and forget the negative aspects of your life. You cannot afford to have people bringing you down because they don’t believe in what you believe. They don’t envision what you envision. So if that’s the case, then don’t bother with it. This song can be found as a single or as a part of a collective works (A Mirror Image) at www.itsclizzy.com/his-music. Video was shot and edited by Jacob Izrael of Breaking Rules Media. Directed by dr. O. The video also features Mack, Swags, Andy Quijano, Camie and Danielle Lizardi. I hope you enjoy the video and always remember, #MayNothingStopYou
I have finally finished the compilation video for “A Mirror Image Tour”! I know it took me some time, but I wanted to capture the emotion I felt, as well as, feel like you are a part of the crowd. This video only covers 2 of the 4 venues I performed at due to some video quality issues but I know it will still convey the same message. I really hope you enjoy what I put together here! Special thanks to Melissa Malanczuk and Andy Quijano for the video! Just remember #MayNothingStopYou!
5th single from Cliz’s up-and-coming project “A Mirror Image”
Now before you listen to this track, I just want to say that I am not against education at all. Actually, I believe in education. But I also believe that there are people, like me, that have a passion for something that can’t exactly be taught in school or college, etc. Now that it’s out there, the point of the song is to show my dedication to my passion and the people that support it and/or help push it forward. If it’s not about that, then I don’t bother with it. Plain and simple. No cockiness and no hard feelings, but in order to better yourself in this life, you need to learn to block out any negativity and do whatever it takes (obviously with some limitations) to achieve what everybody thinks is unachievable. To prove those that always doubted you wrong. But not to say, “I told you so!” But to show them that it is possible and to make them believe strictly because you believed! #MayNothingStopYou.
