Taken for Granite
Cliff Boulder (aka Ted Cobena, Jr.) was born in Lafayette, Louisiana at The Swamp Fox Bar and Grill when Big Mickey, from New Orleans, slapped Ted on the back and proclaimed him 'Cliff Boulder, Rock Drummer!' Everyone seated at the bar agreed and the name stuck. (The fact that Ted was a drummer in a rock and roll band at the time and has a degree in Geology helped to fuel Mickey's imagination a bit, no doubt). Cliff has been involved in numerous recording projects in the past including favorite Louisiana bands like The Red Beans and Rice Revue and Bas Clas. Currently he has just finished work as a guest artist on the debut disc from Lafayette's own New Phobia Orchestra. His work can also be heard on Michelle Murphy McCann's new CD 'Starfish'. As a solo artist, he is focusing his talent on composing lush, atmospheric instrumental pieces infused with the flavor of his Louisiana heritage. His latest project is a 10 song CD entitled 'Taken For Granite' on which he has written and performed each composition. 'I listened to it last night and what soothing music. It has a sound of it's own...' Jo Cart, The Rayne Independent Now it's time for you to listen, relax and enjoy.
