The Folk Collective: Genre Bending and the Power of Collaboration
- The Folk Collective
Cliff Notez, a member of The Folk Collective, is a multi-digital media artist, musician, entrepreneur, and filmmaker making their Passim stage debut!
Cliff Notez will be joined by their live band for this headlining performance ahead of the release of their genre-bending single, followed by a conversation with Will Dailey, who has stepped in as one of Cliff Notez’s leading producers, engineers, and guiding lights for their recent single release.
The conversation between these two powerhouse creatives will inspire audiences and artists alike as it delves into the artistic process, genre-bending, collaboration, and more.
“I believe genre is something slowly becoming a thing of the past, although I do think its history acts as guiding light for understanding the gaps we have in our own artistic journeys and how we might be able to fill them.” –Cliff Notez

Award-winning multi-digital media artist, musician, organizer & filmmaker Cliff Notez’s art is a continuous exploration of the black mind. Rooted in hip-hop, their art tackles the political and the personal, exploring the intimate consequences of a society where black bodies are easily ignored, forgotten, or disregarded. In 2018 they took home Best New Artist at the Boston Music Awards, and in 2020, Cliff became the first musician to be named “Musician of the Year” for Boston Magazine’s 100 Most Influential Bostonians. Cliff’s Second full-length album, Why The Wild Things Are, was released on September 11th, 2019.
