Artist : Polarbear

Polarbear is not a bear at all, but a Brummie, raised on hip-hop and Arthur Scargill, who writes stories and sometimes talks them on stage. His work has featured on BBC Radio 1, 3, 4 and 6 and he has performed around the world from Kuala Lumpur to California. He leads writing and performance projects nationally and internationally and can usually be found in the kitchen at house parties. ‘The yarn-spinning Brummie’ – The Times ‘You must go and listen to this man’s work’ – John Hillcock XFM ‘His minimal style and unsettlingly straightforward and blunt lyricism make him shine out of the dross of a lot of spoken word’ – Dazed & Confused
