Bio

Poe Swayzie is an award-winning singer/songwriter from New London, CT. His knack for catchy hooks as well as complex rhythms and word play accompanied by an amazing onstage presence, have made him a fan favorite among the South Eastern CT's music scene. Although his primary focus is Hip-Hop he is well versed in a variety of genres including Pop, Rock, and R&B.
Born Kighl Dozier on the US Navy Base in Groton, CT. He was destined for great things having lived in Italy and Virginia at an early age it was these places that helped him to realize his love for entertainment by dancing and singing for family and friends. "Family is by far my greatest inspiration, I grew up around some of the greatest musicians I know," says Poe of his inspirations. "It was a mixture of the soul and disco along with the hip-hop of the 90's" he says, "I grew up with it and that has influenced my sound and image." His unique style and hard work landed him an invitation to join The Fly 1s a successful independent music collective.
