Cliffs + Caves, the mother-daughter duo of Lindsey and Claire Justice, unabashedly share their deeply personal and relatable stories through songs that resonate with listeners of all generations. Best known in their home state of Texas for their unique blend of Contemporary Americana music, the pair showcases the musical ingenuity that is created when artistry runs in the family with intimate lyrics lilting intrinsically over smooth musical progressions.
Their previous discography includes their 2017 debut EP, Hold On (recorded with Grammy-nominated producer Jamie Candiloro (Ryan Adams, R.E.M., The Eagles) and featuring performances by legendary Willie Nelson’s harmonica player, Mickey Raphael) and sophomore EP Capsize (produced by Chris Jacobie (Penny and Sparrow, Jarrod Dickenson, Duncan Fellows). The original songs are a team effort with the duo individually contributing to the mastery of their lyrics and melodies. Moreover, twenty-year-old Claire being a multi-instrumentalist, not only composes the music for the tracks but also bestows a knack for songwriting.
Their newer music further explores the duo’s ability to portray life through lyrics as they evolve into a more alternative Maggie-Rogers-esque sound while still maintaining their Americana roots and drawing inspiration from benchmark artists like Phoebe Bridgers, Lake Street Dive, and Patty Griffin.
