Cliff Notez is the original Founder of Hipstory. The idea was inspired by the title of his first collaboration with the ValidDictorians released in April of 2012. After much garnished success in touring, Cliff ventured out to foster new talent under a label with a parallel name in 2015. Since his last EP release, The Prelude: Composition Story in 2011, Cliff has released several collaboration projects with artists like The ValidDictorians, Forté, Oompa, The Honor’s Society, Shane Romero, and Fran-P, but no solo project since his initial release.
Born in Boston Massachusetts, at the beginning of the 90s, Cliff Notez is an artist, film-maker, poet, musician, photographer, and producer/engineer working with people and places like Harvard, Russell Simmons, MIT, Boston University, RAW Art Works and more. Cliff recently graduated from Northeastern University  with a masters in digital media and was 2016 Vox Pop Poetry Slam Champion with the Haley House slam team.
