Word (R)evolution with Spoken Word artists Taalam Acey and Jared Paul
Music at Lily Pads becomes Spoken Word at Lily Pads this night, with two nationally recognized  word artist/poets, Taalam Acey from Baltimore, and Jared Paul from Providence. It will be an evening of illumination, clarity and verse as only performers of this caliber can deliver it. Do not miss this.

Jared Paul is an organizer, independent journalist and social worker from Providence, Rhode Island. Known for thoroughly researched work, poignant presentation and dedication to craft, Jared is also widely recognized as one of the premiere performance poets in the country. His performance accomplishments include nationwide tours with world-renowned poet and Epitaph Recording artist Sage Francis; featuring at the 2007 Green-Build World Expo; and advancing to the Individual World Poetry Slam Finals in both 2006 and 2007.

"Jared Paul is the watchdog of poetry, a force not unlike a hurricanea very skinny, loud, sweaty hurricane that wants you to know your life is worth everything and that this planet belongs to us all."
Mike McGee, 2003 Individual National Poetry Slam Champ and 2006 Individual World Poetry Slam Champ

ABOUT TAALAM ACEY

""You have so, so much inspired me with your Spoken Word" said the legendary Stevie Wonder, while interviewing Taalam Acey, during Wonder's own birthday celebration in May 2008.   Over the years, BET has featured and aired roughly a half dozen segments featuring Taalam Acey. The Newark, NJ native's poetry has appeared in Essence Magazine and Susan Taylor, the magazine's Editor Emeritus, personally invited Acey to perform for an audience of six thousand at The Essence Music Festival in New Orleans. Acey was selected as the initial presenter for the inaugural Baltimore TEDx. He was also the curator of the 2011 Sacred Circle Cafe at New Jersey's most prestigious theater, the NJ Performing Arts Center. Taalam was honored to be a guest of Congresswoman Maxine Waters for the Congressional Black Caucus' 2007 & 2008 "Young Gifted and Black" panels. He has shared his work in several countries and approximately one hundred schools of higher education; including the esteemed Graduate School of Education at UC Berkeley, where he delivered a lecture on contemporary Spoken Word. Taalam Acey has recorded more than a dozen CDs and authored four books. Additionally, films that include his work have garnered an Audience Award (2002) and a Special Jury Prize (2006) at the Sundance Film Festival. He was featured in an acclaimed Radio-One London slam poetry documentary and Marc Smith, the founder of slam poetry, used Acey's work in his definitive book. Taalam currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.
