As a child, he recognized his great interest in everything that surrounded music. Eventually, Cliff began to take his first steps along with the Michael Jackson’s "Billie Jean" and "Thriller." It soon became an obsession. At the age of nine, he had the “Moonwalk” down to perfection and was soon to be introduced to the world of Hip Hop & R&B. As a result of his passion, everything surrounding Cliff Neptune increases his love and desire for music and dance. Inspired by artists such as Michael Jackson, Craig David, Jay Sean, Joe Thomas, Marques Houston, and others.

In January 2016 he moved back to the U.S. to continue pursuing a career in the music industry. While working as a sales associate in luxury retail in Miami he was investing his free time in writing and recording in different studios to find the sound that suits him best. During this time, he established friendships with different people from the music scene bringing his music to a professional level.
