Award-winning musician, filmmaker, and organizer Cliff Notez creates art as a continuous exploration of self. Rooted in Hip-Hop, his music tackles the ways in which the personal and the political intersect by exploring the intimate consequences of a society where black bodies are easily ignored, forgotten, and disregarded. He is currently a professor at Berklee College of Music, where he is helping to design the first ever Hip-Hop BA program, and is also the founder and co-owner of HipStory, a Boston-based production company and media collective. His debut solo LP When the Sidewalk Ends, released in 2017, explores themes of racism, oppression, black mental health, and black identity. In 2018, Cliff Notez won the Boston Music Award for “New Artist of The Year.”
