    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
