(2:51 minute mp3)

From avant garde to gospel, lyric narratives to performance pieces, acoustic to electronica, reVerse features established as well as emerging poets and songwriters, mixing the unmistakable voices and interpretive sounds of 14 artists to form a single volume. Purchase reVerse.

Performed by the artists themselves, the works in this collection create an intersection of music and poetry, rendering immaterial the question of the difference.
