Clifton Murray joined the Canadian Tenors in 2009. His natural singing voice was inherited from his grandfather, George Murray, a famous Irish Tenor on CBC Television's Cross Canada Hit Parade that aired in the 1950s. Clifton began singing and playing guitar at an early age with his father at Nimmo Bay Resort, and went on to study voice and theatre at Brentwood College and The University of Victoria before graduating with honors from the Vancouver Film School.
Clifton has worked steadily in the television and film industry, securing a supporting role alongside William Shatner and James Spader on the hit series, Boston Legal. He has also appeared with actor Amanda Bynes in the DreamWorks feature film She's the Man. His role in the movie opened the doors for guest appearances on well-known television series such as; the L Word, Smallville, Reaper, Pain Killer Jane and Flash Gordon and can be seen in the upcoming motion picture releases Night at the Museum II and Damage with Steve Austin.
Clifton performed as a soloist with the Vancouver-based Good Noise Gospel Choir prior to joining the Tenors, and starred as 'Gord' in the Studio City, Los Angeles production of the Daniel Brooks play, The Good Life.
