    Andrea Gibson

    Spoken Word

    Andrea Gibson is not gentle with their truths. It is this raw fearlessness that has led them to the forefront of the spoken word movement -- the first winner of the Women's World Poetry Slam -- Gibson has headlined prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and spirituality.

    Their work has been featured on the BBC, Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV, and in 2010 was read by a state representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature.

     

    Now, on their fifth full-length album, FLOWER BOY, and their second book, THE MADNESS VASE, Gibson's poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome mat at the door of the heart's most compassionate room.

    In their most recent book, PANSY, Gibson balances themes of love, gender, politics, sexuality, illness, family and forgiveness with stunning imagery and a fierce willingness to delve into the exploration of what it means to truly heal. Each turn of the page represents both that which as been forgotten and that which is yet to be released. While this book is a rally cry for political action, it is also a celebration of wonder and longing and love.

     

    "Gibson is among the nation's most admired and emulated poets. [Their] verse is at once personal and political, feminist and universal, filled with incinerating verbs and metaphor, and delivered with gut punching urgency." - Metaphor Media
