Multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter Cedric Noel is a pop powerhouse! With a massive catalogue, countless collaborations and a unique pop sensibility supporting him, Cedric is a catalyst in the Montréal music scene. Joining me from his new pad in Montréal, Cedric shared wonderful stories from his very beginnings as a musician, and stories of collaborations with other iconic Québec musical figures such as Ada Lea, Michael Feuerstack and Alexia Avina. Really great chat! Be sure to listen to the track at the end of the cast, yet another collaboration, this time with Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith and Sean Hellfritsch (aka Cool Maritime), a stunning electronic exploratory performance. Enjoy 🎙️
Montreal-based artist Cedric Noel has spent the past decade creating soul-stirring pieces that muse on identity, Black beauty, and celebration. His music is informed by his unique worldview: He was born in Niger to Canadian and Mozambican/Belgian parents, spent his upbringing around the world, and is currently based in Canada.
Across the last decade, Cedric has released a number of critically praised full-length albums, EPs and collaborative works of his own, while also playing bass for acts like Ada Lea, Alexia Avina, and Dana Gavanski. This fall, he’ll be releasing a milestone piece of work, titled Hang Time.
