BandSpoken WordHip Hop

Ranging from high-energy collaborations to subtly thought-provoking individual pieces, this interactive performance will change the way you think of poetry and spoken word.


We are a collaboration of individual spoken word artists who got together to put small town Ontario on the national radar. With distinct styles ranging from classical poetry to empassioned spoken word to hip hop, we are more than the sum of our parts when we come together. Using sound poetry, beat boxing, rhythm, rhyme, humour, politics, sexuality, and insight, our key is to be accessible to diverse audiences, always pushing the boundaries of art and thought.
