Being a poet with a spoken word music album, I take this time each year to get better as a writer. Work on techniques and emoting through paper as opposed to performance. However, 2015 Is slightly different. I've been presented with an opportunity to record my next album sooner than expected and so I spent the month of January writing new material. For some its only been a year since "Hands Down" came out but for me, the writing on that album has been done for five years. I have grown. Had a lot of new experiences. Have a different viewpoint and want to take this years "3030" run to share poems that will be selected from for the next album- "Never Say Die"
I will be gearing up for live shows, featuring a band and a co feature later this year and being able to reach you is the most important thing for me as an independent artist. Please sign up on the email list, where you will get new track exclusives, "invite only" show invites and discounts on merchandise coming soon. I look forward to the comments and reactions and opinions on the new work.
I was also recently nominated for an IMA (Independent Music Award) in the category of Spoken Word (with music accompaniment). It is a digital award so there is no ceremony, but there is a panel and a chance for you to vote as well! Go here for more details.
