As you may have heard we started recording all the Words & Verses spoken word open mic nights, held on the 2nd Tuesday of every month at The Spread Eagle, with a great many thanks to The Decibel Kid our friendly neighbourhood beat maker.
The first poet to take the stage during the open mic was the excellent Jonathon Marriott. Better known as an alternative acoustic musician he only decided that morning to read his lyrics as poems!
It was his first time on stage as a Poet and we think he was wonderful. Its really special to get the space to listen to a songwriters lyrics, sometimes I struggle at gigs so this was very enjoyable for me. I hope you like it too.
Here is the title track from his debut EP performed as a poem.
