Joel Brown is a new-age spoken word poet. Raised in Milwaukee, Joel A. Brown has been writing since the age of 7, but did not consider it a vocation until the age of 17.
Joel approaches his craft from a spiritual perspective instead of as an academic discipline. In a word, he describes his poetry as "authentic."
His poetry is a unique blend of urbanism, sensuality, and spirituality, which speaks to life and its varied nuances. "I don't know what I don't feel," says Joel, "so my poetry is strictly my truth being revealed."
He has 300+ poems to date, and spends his time traveling and performing at poetry events, schools, civic celebrations, and spiritual gatherings, both locally and nationally. In 2003, Joel launched a community arts project called "Souletryâ: an enterprise which provides poetry workshops and offers young people-particularly African-American, LGBT and at-risk youth-the opportunity to express themselves in creative space.
He has been published in various urban magazines and literary publications, and usually performs under his stage name, "Atypcl," which is largely indicative of his multi-cultural identity. In June 2005, he released his first CD of poetry, âLucid Intervals.â In June 2009, he has completed his second CD, âSimplexity,â and is scheduled to publish his first book, âWordsmith In a Lighted Room,â in the Fall of 2009.
âSimplexityâ represents a number of things: human-ness, longing, triumph, and soulful-ness. It is a gross understatement to say this work is deeply personal...which is strange since all art is biographical to some degree. Whereas âLucid Intervalsâ is my âcontemplative child,â âSimplexityâ is my âtransparent child.â I love the fact that my CDs are totally organic: they always evolve naturally and expansively. Nothing on this CD is processed or artificial. All of the lyrics are heartfelt; all of the music is real and performed by live musicians. I had the pleasure of collaborating with my new friend, David Landon of Whip Records in Berkeley. In the end, what we created is something seamless, soulful, sensual, seductive, and of course...poetic. Thank you for connecting with me...Enjoy!
