From Hen House:

MICHAEL C FORD is in the midst of an exciting new spoken word album with Hen House as well as It Might Not Be Poetry, a series of podcasts surveying the music and culture of Los Angeles throughout the 20th century. His book of Selected Poems Emergency Exits was honored by a 1998 Pulitzer Prize nomination and his debut spoken word vinyl Language Commando earned a Grammy nomination in 1986.

ELLYN MAYBE is continuing her Poetry Rodeo at Beyond Baroque this fall and will be performing exclusive material for Hen House Presents. Ellyn’s album, Rodeo for the Sheepish was featured as the top album of 2010 in famed critic Greil Marcus’s column for The Believer magazine. Ellyn opened the MTV Spoken Word Tour in Los Angeles and Writer’s Digest named her one of ten poets to watch in the new millennium.

BABA ALADE is a multi-instrumentalist/poet/artist who first started playing jazz in his home town of Watts-California with Ndugu Leon Chancellor, Larry Nash, Herbert Baker and Azar Lawrence. He rose to prominence on the bass recording with avant-garde, fusionist saxophone player Charles Lloyd. His album Unified and One with Hen House shows the “endless permutations” of his musical and artistic endeavors.
