Slambassadors UK National Final: Hollie McNish, Joelle Taylor
The UK's loudest and longest running solo youth slam is back with a vengeance!
Brought to you by the Poetry Society, SLAMbassadors UK national finals showcase the strongest spoken word talent in the country alongside spoken word stars Hollie McNish and Joelle Taylor, with live mixing and visuals. Roll your poetry books up and scream through them: this is poetry at the heart of the revolution.
Spoken word poet who by early 2014 had released two poetry albums, Touch and Push Kick, both to critical acclaim - with the latter prized for contributions to maternal research by the University of London.
At a time when the live entertainment industry is saturated with acts that are formulaic and predictable, internationally acclaimed poet and spoken word artist Hollie McNish is a breath of fresh air. Reciting words of love, politics, race, breasts and all that comes in between, Hollie’s poems captivate and move audiences to feel something that is sorely lacking in the industry today.
Coming 1st in the UK Slam Poetry Finals and 3rd in the World Poetry Slam Finals, Hollie broke into the mainstream via the Internet – two of her videos ‘Mathematics’ and ‘Embarrassed’ have gone viral on YouTube, reaching over one million views in just over a week. She has received high praise both online and in print, garnering accolades including ‘Internet Sensation’ (Best Daily) and ‘Chick of the Week’ (MTV).
In the words of poet Benjamin Zephaniah, "I can’t take my ears off her."
