Have you been writing poetry or rap without any outlet? Do you need a chance to get your stuff heard? Would you like to tour the UK with a group of artists who are reshaping the way the world sees poetry?
We are looking for two new spoken word poets/rappers to join our team of trailblazers. Applicants should be confident, committed and creative. We need artists who like to push boundaries, who come alive on stage and who have something different to say.
Following the success of Words w/ Friends Vol II (Listen here https://youtu.be/qyR3n5Bq1Vo ) BPTHK are proud to announce that we will be recording a third volume of Words w/ Friends. This will be released on 12th June 2018 and we will be touring the UK with all the artists featured on the album from the 10th July 2018 – 22nd July 2018.
For your chance to be a part of a project that is carving out a new place for itself in the industry, send a short bio and a video/audio file of some of your work to firstname.lastname@example.org
Applicants from all over the UK will be considered and arrangements can be made to record remotely. However, applicants who are not available to tour between 10th – 22nd of July will not be considered as this is a fundamental part of the project. Full recording and tour information will be provided to the two chosen artists once submissions close on March 20th 2018.
Please find more information about the project and updates on our website www.bpthkspokenword.com or over on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/BillyPilgrimwithTheHeartseaseKid/

I'm listenin to that solfeggio
As my mind's letting go
My heart's tellin me now's the time
To start setting goals a little mo lofty
From behind the peep hole I see the whole
From atop a steeper summit I greet my soul
It's speakin so clearly I can hear the meanin
Of all the layers in my dreams and
Gettin to me face all my fears and demons
Sayin here's the reason
You've been goin in circles all of these years
Falsities I've been believin
Fallin asleep's addictive, relievin
But it's just deceivin
Just lookin at hits I've been receivin
I see this evil is like a drug
But life's the only drug that I need this evenin
Can I get another hit? Yeea
As we step into another year
I sit with all I've been missin
And it got me thinkin, I swear
There's nothin better than here!
Presently I'm in ecstasy, yes I'm free
As the evidence stares me in the face
Sayin I need to place my residence here
It's all resonance, what you call Heaven is
Really embracin the elements squarely
Darin to be awakened to the rarity
You really are and cherishing
The feeling it starts right here it seems
Stop to look and listen
And feel as your heart light shares its beams
With my heart's might I dare to dream
