ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Guiless, genuine and alive," Andrea is a poet who creates more than art (San Francisco Magazine). Rousing audiences throughout the United States and Canada with her poignant message and her genuine interest in generating change, her words are powerful, compassionate, and inspiring. She is a queer poet/activist who is "political, opinionated, and partial to the big issues" (The Westword).

Andrea moved from New Orleans to Colorado in 1999, where she began attending weekly poetry readings at Denver's political hub, The Mercury Café. In a years time she had rushed the scene, making her mark with the 2000 Denver Slam Team at The National Poetry Slam in Providence, Rhode Island. In the same year, Andrea joined Vox Feminista, a multi-passionate performance tribe of radical, political women bent on social change through cultural revolution. She went on to become a four-time Denver Grand Slam Champion. Andrea took 4th place out of 350 poets in the individual finals at the 2004 National Poetry Slam in St Louis, while simultaneously leading Team Denver to a 2nd place title in the team competition.

Andrea has headlined everywhere from the Nuyorican Poet's Café to Pride Fests and Lady Fests to high schools and universities throughout the country. She has been showcased on Free Speech TV, Dyke TV, the documentary Slam Planet and Independent Radio Stations nationwide. She is featured on New York City's 2004 Best of Urbana CD, and is currently a member of the prestigious Bullhorn Collective "comprised of 30 of the highest ranking slam poets and most accomplished performance poets in the world." She has shared the stage with such names as Leslie Feinberg, Amy Goodman, Dennis Kucinich and KRS1.

Andrea's poetry deconstructs the foundations of the current political machine, highlighting issues such as patriarchy, gender norms, white-supremacy, and capitalist culture. Her words are honest, humble and "oh my god, I can't believe you said that in public!" (ex-girlfriend #4).

since i am not a poet: i love it!

This is Andrea's best CD I've heard yet. Her poetry is so intense, visual and real. Her style is so unique and touches base on every current issue going on in our world. It artistically embraces your emotions in so many ways. I highly recommend it!!!!!

Sheila

Love it, want more ANDREA!!!!
Great CD for me to enjoy more of Andrea's talent. I would rate anything with Andrea's poetry on it 5 stars. Reading her poetry is a 5 star experience. This CD sounds more professional than Swarm, if you like that sort of thing. Andrea has the ability to bring me from tears to laughter with one poem. This is a must have for poetry fans.

andrea gibson! yay!
I saw Andrea and Katie Wirsing at the Java hut in Worcester. I bought Katie's cd and wanted Andrea's but she didn't have any. Months later I ordered Swarm and Bullets and Wind chimes off CD Baby (and apparently there is a third?). Both cd's are great and I really like Andrea's poetry! So inspirational. Recommended for everyone who wants to feel any sort of emotion.

Kelsey

Stunning.
All three Andrea Gibson CDs are profound but this one might just be my favorite...although I hope I never have to choose between them. ;) Please buy them all - you'll be amazed!!

Caitlin

Amazing
Andrea's always amazing, live and on CD, but this mix of her poetry is perfect. It's the CD I'm using to introduce Andrea's stuff to a friend. Trying to spread her around the east coast!
