Having bridged the gap between poetry and music, Flowpoetry's progressive and chill approach to spoken word jam transcends musical boundaries and interlaces shared storytelling and poetic vibration into a communal and collective consciousness that unifies the ancient and future as one. With over 950 shows in the USA with bands and as a solo poet, Flowpoetry was honored as a finalist for the MNSWA "Urban Griot" International/National Performer of the year alongside other poets such as Leonard Cohen and Saul Williams. In 2014, Flowpoetry was voted as one of Madison Magazine's Best Spoken Word/Poetry Performers. He is also a three-time finalist for Best Artist in the Annual Madison WI Area Music Awards.
"Flowpoetry's verses find the right rhythm and pitch for every approach (and) he reads them with an ease that lets the music sing. … makes the relationship between words and music feel new again. Carves out a tribal, ambient, dreamy vibe.... " The Isthmus (Madison, WI)
"Courageous and organically fused…similar to that of Rage Against The Machine at times, honest and holds the mood of a Shaman performing cleansing rituals." Local Playlist (Milwaukee, WI)
"Flowpoetry is one of the most unique and riveting performers on the Midwestern musical and artistic landscape. On the cutting edge of the nationwide expansion of new forms of spoken word.... unique, theatrical and musical." DeKalb Chronicle (DeKalb, IL)
"...very chill yet gripping. On a mission to bridge the gap between poetry and music and does so.... ...some hip jive, Cat Daddy." Gapers Block Presents: Transmission (Chicago, IL)
"Leaving space for stories to unwind, but without forgetting the primal urge to move feet."
