Poetic was born Styron T . Batchelor on Nov 7, 1983 in Naples, Italy. Moving home to Detroit, Mi, Poetic was enrolled in the Detroit Public School system attending Malcolm X Academy through middle school and Mumford High School where he graduated in 2001. Shortly after graduation Poetic joined The U.S Army where he served five years of duty including a tour of duty in Iraq. Poetic is in a unique position, having served his country during "Operation Iraqi Freedom," his voice carries the weight of vast experience and in a perspective where he shares his world view which appears uncommon for most young men his age. Returning home, Poetic found an avenue to channel his talent through the recording studio. Through his vision he made his way into both regional and national film projects recorded in the traditional areas of The Motor City. With the mentor ship of seasoned professionals on every level of the music industry, he has gained the business perspective necessary in order to elevate into his maximum potential as an entrepreneur, artist and actor.
Poetic is an alumni of both the Recording Institute of Detroit and Spec’s Howard School of Media Arts. Poetic’s desire is to be given the opportunity to create and sustain a presence as a entertainer, as well as a creative enigma in his respective fields. Employing various marketing strategies that will successfully lead his career to success, he will potentially create a cross-generational appeal in both his music as well as his vision.
As a performer, Poetic has opened for Will Downing, Lala Hathaway, and Gerald Albright at The Detroit Opera House and also delivered an impact experience at Western Michigan University Globe Theater. Poetic is actively involved in weekly showcases at Bert's Market Place in Detroit's Historical Eastern Market and was given an opportunity to share the stage with Sky Covington and Urban Soul at "Arts, Beats and Eats."
