Artists Confirmed for Poetry Audio Disc

posted in: Blog, News, Projects 0

20yearsentence is pleased to announce that a full roster of artists has been finalised to appear on the bonus CD that will accompany the release of For You Or Someone Like You, my debut poetry collection.

The ten-track CD will only be available at the live shows I will be putting on (watch this space for details) or via mail order from the website . Releasing this book was an ideal opportunity to do something I have been wanting to for ages: turn my poems into songs. I have been able to get some of the artists I have known for ages and persuade them to create songs from the poems. The results are amazing!

The CD includes contributions from:
Matthew Van Der Want
Rambling Bones
Shannon Hope
Shotgun Tori
Rob McLennan (No Friends OF Harry)
Paul Riekert (Battery 9)
Jon Pat Myers (Toxik Sox)
Trenton Birch (Trenton and Free Radical)
Anton Marshall (3 Bored White Guys)
And one track from me!

For You Or Someone Like You will be released in early July through selected bookstores countrywide and online. Iwill be following this up with a series of story-telling, musical shows around the country to promote the book and the music CD that goes with it.

Most poetry collections are static affairs that live on book shelves so I though that this one should live in a show that will constantly change and evolve as I add new songs and tell different stories each time. This will reflect the story of the journey that led to the creation of this book and my identity as a writer.

The book and CD are available online at a pre-launch special of R120.00 until the end of June. If you haven’t already, you really should head on over to the website to check out the various offers in detail.  Log on to be a part of this unique book promotion.
