ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Ebony Washington is a spoken-word artist who turns social commentary into art. She began performing poetry during her senior year at Hofstra University. Upon the completion of her degree in film production, Ebony quickly gained notoriety performing at all of New York City's hot spots. Her passionate politics and courage to tackle tough issues made her a crowd favorite and earned her the nickname "poetlician." Ebony has featured at venues and colleges across the country. Most recently, she wowed audiences in Virginia, Florida, Alabama, Texas and Missouri.

In 2001, Ebony left her job as a New York City Public School Teacher and formed POetLITICAL, Inc. to counter overwhelmingly violent and sexually charged popular music. POetLITICAL, Inc.'s mission is to bring socially conscious arts back to popular culture and to promote artists who confront society's injustices through their work. Shortly after, Ms. Washington began recording her debut CD which combines poetry reminiscent of her lyrical influences The Last Poets, Nikki Giovanni and KRS1 with a radical fusion of musical genres that includes Modern Rock, Hip Hop, Blues, and Jazz.

Ebony Washington's energetic performances ultimately lead her into theatre and screen acting. She has appeared in several independent films and off-Broadway productions. Her poem "I've Got Rhythm" on women in music videos received critical acclaim from www.theatermainia.com following her appearance in the off-Broadway production A Message in our Music. In January 2003, Ms. Washington won the Aretha Franklin/Nikki Giovanni Poetry Competition sponsored by BET and Sony Music, and judged by Nikki Giovanni. The competition aired on BET's spoken word series Lyric Cafe in April and the winning poem "Right Here" written for the women in Afghanistan was published in 'Essence' Magazine. In April 2004, Ms. Washington was awarded a fellowship in Music Composition from New York Foundation of the Arts.

Ebony Washington recently released her debut album Revolutionary Kind of Girl currently on sale.

Poetry at its best...
It takes true skill to master the art of spoken word. Ebony has indeed mastered the art. It's obvious she loves poetry and is not afraid to speak her mind and command your attention with her words. She's right up there with Sonia & Nikki imho.
