The stimulating, fluid sonic blends and forthright, open-hearted lyrics throughout Hang Time, the new LP from Cedric Noel, finds the Tio’tiá:ke/Montreal-based artist untangling complex realities, and ultimately landing with a stunning sense of surety and self.

Written during a period of intense self-reflection, his eighth album digs into what it means to be disconnected from place/ancestry, adopted into a multi-racial family, what it is to be Black man in a predominantly white scene, and how one can arrive at a place of pride amidst the multiplicity of self.
