Subcounsiously indocrinated with class politics since birth, Blank Space grew up in trailer parks defending his dignity from his destructive peers, the church and the school system. Reflecting that, his lyrics are his personal homegrown resistance to the current state of chaos he/we live in. Speaking of Sexism, Class War, Food Abundance & Communication, Blank Space draws from struggling as a self proclaimed polyamorous anarchist, that believes in building security through relationships with other people, and the earth.
From the endless breaths of inricate multi-layered Beatboxing, to the vocal scratching of adlibs between spoken words, Blank Space passionatly blends genres with a message for every listening audience. Addressing privledge & power with conviction and self determination, this fierce independent artist is known for sharing many stages and encouraging self questioning with just his presence.
Since his first cross country tour (with 'The Outspoken Wordsmiths' & Dragonboy 2005), Blank Space has performed 300+ shows on Turtle Island sharing stages, shows and tours with the likes of Testament & Illogik (TEST THIER LOGIK), Ladybug the Rambler, TemPeSt, the Peoples Poets, Sherman Austin, cr avery, Shamik, DJ IV, Spesk K, EMC & Hermit of the Woods (IMF), Jeff Andrews, Joey Only & the Outlaw Band, Iskra, Leper, Ursula and hundreds of others!
