A British African Poetry & Spoken Word Artist

Whenever I manage to find some time for hobbies outside of the booth, my enduring love of spoken word and poetry is always my second go-to for a creative outlet.

My voiceover training has been incredibly helpful in my spoken word work, giving me a greater control over my delivery to squeeze every drop of emotion from every stanza, and fully hold the attention of my listeners.

Outside of the niche audiences that spoken word used to attract, it’s become increasingly more popular in the commercial world, with brands and businesses using the power of spoken word poetry to share their ethos with more heart than just simple taglines at the end of an advert.

I invite you to listen to my spoken word delivery in some of the commercial and charity work that I’ve had the honour of doing, and see if I’m the right spoken word performer to share your message.

How To Hire A Spoken Word Performer...

Poetry. Comedy. Storytelling. All of them are in the realm of the spoken word performer.

A spoken word artist is a unique blend of orator and artist, using vocal abilities alone to enrapture a crowd simply with words alone.

Spoken word performance is highly skilled due to its lack of theatrics or staging equipment. It is barebones, relying purely on the performance alone to uphold the artform.

It’s why choosing your spoken word performer can be so tricky, because it’s such a unique vocal talent that is very easy to miss the mark with.

This is especially important if you’re using spoken word as part of a commercial project, aiming to unite tens of thousands, and possibly even millions of people, to take time out of their day and pay attention to your message.

Thankfully, I make hiring a spoken word performer easier than ever.

Simply listen to my demos and see if I’m the right performer to match your spoken word script. If you’re still not sure, then I’m more than happy to do a sample read of your poem or script if you get in touch.

And finally, I’ll be right back in touch to hear all about your project and how I help you move your audience into action, whether you’re launching a project or trying to change the world.

What Is A Spoken Word Performer?

There are infinite variations of spoken word performances, but one of the most popular is spoken word poetry.

Spoken word poetry is an ancient style of poetry, written not be read, but to be performed aloud to a crowd.

It’s a staple of classic folk storytelling, which became the form of spoken word we know today from the American Beat Poet movement that took place in the 1940s and 1950s during the Harlem Renaissance.

While it can be performed with musical accompaniment, I prefer to perform spoken word poetry as a solo performer, where the full focus is on the emotion of the words and performance of the speaker.

It’s one of the most intimate live performances that you can be part of as an audience, no matter the size of the crowd. The poetry relies solely on the reader and nothing else.

Spoken word has always been a vessel for spreading important messages, with its raw style cutting straight to the heart of an issue, far more effectively than an essay or just a speech ever could. 

It is a artform which thrives in protest and touching on hard subjects to produce real social change.

If you need someone to share your message and you want to use the power of spoken word in your next commercial project, then I want to be the one to give a voice to your message.

Tim understood my client's requirements and did not hesitate to offer some demo options in various styles to make sure everything was on the right lines.

Good work, Tim. I'm sure I'll be using your voiceover services again.

Versatile, meaningful, credible.

As a producer you don’t just need a voice actor who can read a script; you need someone who can communicate naturally and who brings something new to the party.

Tim is just such a guy. Highly recommended.
