WRITER’S BLOCK FEAT. JESSE BOYKNS III – 14.04.10

March 16, 2010

Writer’s Block presents: Jesse Boykins III (real name, no gimmicks).

Performing for the first time in the UK, and hailing from Brooklyn New York, Jesse (accompanied by a full live band) will have the crowd swooning with tunes from his two delicious albums;

Dopamine

The Beauty Created

No one has more swoon-worthy finesse than Jesse Boykins III. With his breathy intonations, boyish hustle and collaborations with artists like Melo-X and Theophilus London; he’s making noise in a soul music scene aching for something classic and new. In an age where vocals course through vocoders and double-clicks rule the DJ booth, Boykin’s New School-bred production and arrangement skills are both novel and necessary. His second album The Beauty Created is awash in richly textured instrumentation and driven by Jesse’s lyrical adoration of a woman’s quirks.

April 14th marks Writer’s Block’s 2nd Birthday celebrations and a rare chance to witness Jesse, plus a host of talented acts from the world of music and poetry Live at Cargo, Shoreditch. After the show, it’s the after party, led by mighty Hip Hop connoisseur DJ Snips (Doctor’s Orders).

Inua Ellams of P.I.P (Poetry Inbetween People)

Impassioned. There’s no better way to describe Inua. So whether he’s spitting ticklish tales of childhood misdemeanors or offering rhyming couplets about love lost over Converse all-stars, know that he will deliver…passionately. Spoken Wordist, Writer, Graphic Designer & Nomadic journeyer. Inua is fresh off his sell out story-telling stage show ‘The 14th Tale’ performed at the National Theatre.


Deanna Roger

UK poetry slam champion, seasoned spoken word performer, poetry workshop student turned facilitator, original, delectable Deanna.
“Her poems take listeners on a journey, much of the time, they don’t realise that they are on; meaning is disguised through specific words used, semantic fields and imagery- so listen carefully. She speaks HER truth no one elses”


Kersha Bailey

Soul sensation, Kersha Bailey has developed a three octave vocal range with a soulful, colourful style. Her influences are diverse and include Coldplay, George Benson, Outkast, Foo Fighters,. Kersha’s sweet voice and notable song writing talents have taken her to performances such as the legendary London Jazz Café, Ronnie Scotts, Rise Festival, The Royal Albert Hall and for MPs in Covent Garden. She had the whole audience mesmerized at her last Writer’s Block Performance, captivating!


The Illersapiens

A 7 piece hip hop collective including live instrumentalists, rapper, and vocalist. Pure infectious vibes.
Growing up in South London, the Illersapiens style has evolved from a colourful hybrid of music from Reggae to Broken beat, drawing inspiration from Hip Hop acts such as A Tribe called quest, MF Doom, Wu Tang Clan, The Roots, J Dilla, Flying Lotus and Madlib. British artists such as Roots Manuva, Jehst, London Posse, Klashnekoff and Steel Pulse are also heavily influential.

PoetiCat

The atmospheric and candid PoetiCat band will be gracing the Writer’s Block. The sound they bring, nick-named ‘folk n word’, will in no doubt bring extra spice to the night. PoetiCat’s are famed for their honest, thought-provoking, and comic take on urban life in London.
