Bio for-- FLOWER BOY:
www.andreagibson.org

Andrea Gibson is not gentle with her truths. It is this raw fearlessness
that has led her to the forefront of the spoken word movement the
first winner of the Women's World Poetry Slam --Gibson has headlined
prestigious performance venues coast to coast with powerful readings
on war, class, gender, bullying, white privilege, sexuality, love, and
spirituality. Her work has been featured on the BBC, Huffinton Post,
Air America, C-SPAN, Free Speech TV and in 2010 was read by a state
representative in lieu of morning prayer at the Utah State Legislature.
(http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-lundberg/gay-poem-shakes-up-
the-ut_b_460390.html) Now, on her fifth full-length album FLOWER
BOY, Gibson's poems continue to be a rally cry for action and a welcome
mat at the door of the heart's most compassionate room. Featuring
the music of Chris Pureka, Nervous But Excited, and many other
phenomenal musical guests the tracks on this compilation are active
Volcano. They burn away and rebirth- a creation story in every lyric,
radiating with the fire of a heart fiercely committed to social justice.

"Andrea Gibson is a truly American poet, or rather, she represents
the America I want to live in. Her work lights a candle to lead us
where we need to go." - Cristin O' Keefe Aptowicz
