DEFINE YOURSELF BEFORE YOUR CRITICS DO
AT POETRY WE’RE DEFINED BY THIS VISION.

WE BRING TO YOU; FORBIDDEN JAZZ HIPHOP EXPERIMENTS, HAUNTING VOCALS AND AFRO LATIN DRUMMING INTERLUDES, SET AMIDST A DIM LIT NARROW ROOM OF WHISPERING, SCHMOOZING SILHOUETTES.

NEW THIS MONTH:
THE CRVE

The Crve
, fronted by soul singer Ryley Murray and Bobby McIntosh (Dead Celebrity Status and Project Wyze), is a new Toronto band with a cinematic soul vibe, playing a mix of art rap originals and eclectic hip hop and soul covers.

AT POETRY WE DO NOT DO COUNTRY CLUB JAZZ. WE ARE TAKING THIS CULTURALLY HISTORIC GENRE BACK FROM ELITE PRIVATE CLUBS, AND BACK TO THE DARK OFFBEAT STREETS, DISRUPTING THE NORM AND JAZZ LANDSCAPE IN TORONTO.

WE ARE EXPERIMENTING WITH THE NEW, USING THE PAST AS A BACKDROP, JUMPING WITHOUT PARACHUTES MUSICALLY, NOT KNOWING THE OUTCOME;
YOU ARE THE WITNESS.

THIS IS POETRY
