Bio

Nicholas Clifton, known on stage by his last name, is an aspiring hip-hop artist, based out of Darwin in the Northern Territory.

After spending his first 11 years in Victoria, around suburbs such as Dandenong and Noble Park, Clifton moved north with his family for a lifestyle change. The lifestyle change was just that, resulting in a long and traumatic series of events which resulted in his self-removal from his family home at 15 forcing a journey of self-discovery and autonomy at an early age.

Struggling through the housing system and living off of minimal government benefits - Clifton spent the majority of his time to himself with headphones in and a phone keypad at his fingertips. In many ways, music helped him overcome his addictive personality and find some true meaning to an otherwise bleak early-adulthood.

Now at 23, Clifton has released two projects; The Rabbit Hole and The Art of Power. These projects symbolise progression through different states of mental insecurities. Coming from a place of vulnerability Clifton hoped these projects would help others through their own struggles.
