Two years after the release of his celebrated debut album When the Sidewalk Ends, Cliff Notez brings his soon-to-be-released full-length project Why the Wild Things Are to OBERON for a very special album release show. The project is a testimony of existence, protest, and survival, and how they all become synonymous and unified in the prolonging of the Black body.

The first single from the album, “Happy” (feat. Latrell James, Moe Pope, Optic Bloom, Tyrek Greene) is available now.
