Candace Liger / Bio

Born December 7, 1984 in the heart of the Delta- Greenville, Mississippi - Candace has recently begun her journey down the road of spoken word poetry. After growing up in the country throughout her childhood and college life, Candace traveled the I-40 road to Oklahoma city where she has resided for the past four years as a mother, computer technician, and student. Candace has picked up her writing again only after the death of her father Eugene Liger, poet and artist, after a long haitus, and has managed to capture an audience with her targeted lyrical stanzas. Her raw writing style is passionate filled with truth and emotions.

"My goal is to write about sensitive topics from a fresh perspective. I like to know that every type of person can at least relate to a poem written by me. Thats the ultimate reward."

She has graced the stage with the world renowned Taalam Acey, Mannie Hager, King Kosher, HBO Def Poet Big Poppa E, and many others. She is a member of the 2010 National Wordpulp and was the 2010 Wordpulp Slam Champion for Queen of Sheba in Oklahoma City.
