Christian J. Collier is an accomplished artist and educator who has been called “an artist to watch” by The Chattanooga Times Free Press. He is the founder of The Speakeasy open-mic and MANIFEST series, and has shared the stage with several members of HBO’s Def Poetry, legendary poet and activist Ishmael Reed, and has been featured on the IndieFeed Performance Poetry Channel, which prides itself on featuring the best spoken word artists working today. Some of his works have been published in such publications as Oysters & Chocolate, DEBACLE, The New Writer, and The Origami Poetry Project to name a few, and his 2009 chapbook Ghosts & Echoes has sold over 600 copies independently solely off the strength of readings and live performances. In October of 2013, Collier released his debut EP Between Beauty & Bedlam. He wrote and produced the entire project himself. The record fuses spoken word poetry and an eclectic mix of musical genres including Hip-Hop and ambient. It is available now at CD Baby, Bandcamp, and at live performances.
