Brutha Gimel's connection to the world of poetry is paralleled by a skill of turn-tablism, which is the actual talent that led to the spoken word, and poetry arena. His attention to the word and tone of poetry pieces allows him to pick some of the perfect songs to wrap up the poets emotion.
Kevin Sandblood uses his musical prowess to advance social causes like economic justice and environmental consciousness, while bringing a fresh sound to an industry weaned on Auto-tune without being retro or dated.
An award-winning poet (but only because of the $2 prize he won in a city-wide poetry contest at age eight), Donny Jackson has been featured as a spoken word artist throughout southern California and the northeastern United States, and is currently a featured performer on Tshaka Campbell's just-released spoken word album, Skin, and the YouTube spoken word street series, Commoners and Kings.
Los Angeles based rapper, actor, writer, host, teacher and award winning spoken word artist, IN-Q, is a fresh new voice in performance art.
