Bio: “Birthed from an ancient world where families ate dinner together and hip hop was thought of as a fad, I emerged as a poet. Often offbeat and nerdy, my writing reflects my surroundings like water naturally reflects the sun.” – Em Sea Water

    The Art of Poetry Recitation Poetry recitation had become a lost art until the National Endowment for the Arts and The Poetry Foundation brought it back to life with the Poetry Out Loud program, now in its ninth year. Join Maryland State Champion (and National Second Place Winner) Blessed Sheriff, Maryland Poet Laureate Stanley Plumly, Maryland Second Place Winner Johana Gourdin, Montgomery County teacher Davina T. Smith, and Maryland Poetry Out Loud Director Chris Stewart for readings, recitations, and a panel discussion about the differences and intersections between memorizing and reciting poetry versus writing and reading the form. Moderator: Borndavid McCraw (Em Sea Water)

    "Remembering Neptune" CD Release Party! On the eve of Winter Solstice, during "The Liquid Soulstice: A Star is Born" at The Big Easy in Randallstown... Traveling to Randallstown can seem as vast as embarking on planet Neptune to some, but its really not that far! Feel free to carpool (or Shuttle, haha) along with your coolest space cadets in your flyest space suits -no real dress code tho... Just come party!! After all, we are not ONLY celebrating the release of "Remembering Neptune" it’s also the Birthday Party of our friend, Borndavid (Em Sea Water)… Delivered on Christmas Day... yada yada yada.. so now on December 20, 2012- We’re popping water bottles with music, dancing, spoken word, and other astronomical fun... All for the small toll of 5 Space Tokens (Yup, Only $5). So all aboard!! We're headed to Neptune...... on 12/20/12..... Don't miss this galactic groove!!!! Remembering Neptune | Press Release This melancholy mixture of prose and poetry captures the innermost moments of Water's mind; synchronizing his thoughts as if they were scattered through outer space, then magnetically pulled toward Neptune to perform together. Dancing over R&B samples from 90's artists including Aaliyah, Mary J. Blige, Lauryn Hill, Zhane, and Erykah Badu, Em Sea Water balances the rhythm of Hip Hop with the inflections and intellect of Spoken Word Poetry. Available on December 20, 2012.
