Caught this guy for the first time at Outspoken last week and was blown away by his charisma, wordplay, jokes and of course poetry which this video displays perfectly. Ben Norris is a poet from Nottingham adjusting to life in the wonderful LDN this is a take on that. He is dropping a poem a week so do subscribe to the channel if you enjoy this then catch him live you’ll be entertained.
The guys have another amazing line up of live music and poetry at this month’s Outspoken. Features from Music is Remedy favourites Adam Kammerling and Chimene Suleyman are worth the entry fee alone. As usual the Anthony Anaxagorou, The Ruby Kid and Karim Kamar will all be on hand to oversee proceedings. A great night in store!

Enjoy and make sure you get down to the next event details here.
Props to The Ruby Kid, Anthony Anaxagorou and Karim Kamar
As much as I loved Jermain Jackman on the voice I thought ist was a small travesty that this girl did not win. Easily the best vocal talent to come out of a reality show since Leona Lewis Christina Marie has a naturally brilliant vocal and to say that she is as Mariah Carey in her mid 90s heyday is no overstatement. The On’t Sofa team capture this perfectly as she belts out this cover. I love her voice and i hope someone gets her on the bigger stage it deserves to be on.
Once again Anthony Anaxagorou drops some realness finding words to speak about the harsh realities of social media and the pressures it places on people. Makesure you give it a good listen more then once you’ll find a new gem of brilliance that you missed the first time you heard it.
Catch Anthony alongside The Ruby Kid and Karim Kamar at their Outspoken event this Thursday. Tickets here
