Welcome to another edition of #TBT here at Autumn Peal!
I’d like to introduce you to my friend Brenton AKA Words of Owls. I met him at Cornerstone at their final festival where we saw each other at the Impact Stage with my other friends. He did spoken word (which I’d like it if he did that again) at the time which was really good.
Feel free to download his record for free at http://wordsofowls.bandcamp.com.
Also, check out his current Acoustic/sadcore project Poor at http://notreallypoor.bandcamp.com.
Here’s a throwback video dating back 6 years ago.
This is my British friend Eagle Spits based out of Boston, England (no, not Massachusetts). He’s a punk poet who uses conscious themes for his lyrics.
For those of you not aware, I’ve been doing a weekly project with my Ospreyshire moniker.
Every week, I post a katauta poem with some minimalistic music to go with it. Here are entries 2, 3, and 4 which came out a while ago.

Here’s a nice change of pace from some concerts videos that I’ve done over the past few months.
This is a sample of the Poetry Alive 2017 event at the Gail Borden Library where the poetry group performed some of their works. This people are just so talented when it comes to being wordsmiths and doing different styles and genres of spoken word.
I would like to thank Michelle Kaczor for filming this. All I did was perform some of my poems and edit the footage.
Yes, that is a spoken word version of a certain Ospreyshire track in the video that I read.
Here’s more quality poetic action from the Elgin Literary Festival.
Meet Gareth Sitz. She’s the leader of the poetry club in town and has been great in leading discussions and giving members poetry prompts to encourage creativity. Gareth also leads a group called Femmeprov which you can check out here: https://www.facebook.com/femmeprov/
Here’s another poet from the Elgin Literary Festival. It’s founder Jeffrey Pierce kicking off the night with poetry in this event about confessional poems.
Angrous from the Elgin hip-hop group Watch City performed three poems of his at the Elgin Literary Festival. The feelings range from emotional to something with levity in them.
