Harlots and Beggars on Wave Records

 Just stumbled into an article on Harlots and Beggars. John successfully signed us with Wave Records in 2021. His son Lucius made the video. Came out cool.


Pillaging sampled orchestral instruments and percussion to weave a sonic tapestry that transcends time, their music evokes images of ancient cities; dying kings, and barren landscapes, clamouring for nostalgia. The duo’s love of lush atmospheres and classical music blends exquisitely, providing a compelling soundtrack for the human condition. At once sounding modern and ancient, Harlots and Beggars stirs the emotions and brings the past to the present with the stirring Reach Beyond The Sun.

Reach Beyond The Sun is an ethereal triumph, as is the accompanying video, directed by Lucius Luedtke, which uses sweeping drone footage of various vistas…with haunting apparitions materializing in between.

The Living Room at Lit Crawl

I'll be reading with the Living Room at Lit Crawl on Saturday October 22 at 6:30PM at the Latin American Club on 22nd and Valencia in the Mission District of San Francisco. The Living Room series (Evenbrite) is a project operated by Kevin Dublin that holds a reading at Syzygy on the Fourth Friday of each month for intimate poetry performances, ideas, and conversation. Based in the Mission district of San Francisco, Each 90 minute event has a theme, set of at least five poets, 15 minute intermission of open discussion about a question that affects Bay Area residents or the world at-large, and a community partner who uplifts vulnerable populations that we spotlight to help raise awareness and solicit donations of funds or time for the cause. The evening that I'll be reading with them marks their one year anniversary, so the event will be very special!
