Cliff Adams is a pop pianist and singer, an entertainer, and a teacher in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky area.

Northern Kentuckians might remember Cliff as a member of the Dingos, a popular local quartet in the late 1960s. The Dingos were inducted into the Northern Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2017.

He entertained as a solo artist nightly at Flanagan's Landing on Pete Rose Way in Cincinnati from 1981 - 1991, and at Jeff Ruby's Waterfront Restaurant from 1993 - 2000. His repertoire includes hundreds of classic pop songs and Great American Songbook standards.

Cliff earned a degree from the College-Conservatory of Music of the University of Cincinnati in 1973. Thirty years later he was recruited by his former professor, Dr. Simon Anderson, to teach History of Rock and Roll at C.C.M. - a position he held for 14 years until he retired in 2018.

Cliff is a contributing author to Less Noise, More Soul: The Search For Balance in the Art, Technology, and Commerce of Music, (pub. Hal Leonard, 2013), which is on the shelves of various libraries, including the library at M.I.T. and the Library of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Today, he writes, composes, creates internet content, occasionally entertains in public venues, and offers private music instruction on piano, guitar, and composition. One former student is in a touring rock band, and another is studying music production at the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
