Growing up in Paterson NJ, born with a pen in her hand, house beat of a heartbeat and a
poetic rhythm in her spirit, RescuePoetix™ found her performance voice at an underground Open Mic in Jersey City in 2006, where she began by getting involved in the promotion, artist scheduling and organizing of weekly events.
RescuePoetix™ has been fortunate and honored to perform in New York, New Jersey, Miami and Philadelphia with a variety of talented Spoken Word artists in such venues as: Ladies on the Mic (Jersey City NJ), Louder Arts (NYC), Capicu Poetry & Cultural Showcase (E Harlem, Brooklyn), Poetry in Pink 2009, 2010, 2011 (NYC, Harlem), CyberSlamm at Winter Music Conference Miami 2012 & 2013, CyberSlamm Philadelphia 2012 in partnership with Global Influences, Femancipation @ Winter Music Conference 2013 and Urbane Floetix . She continues to perform at various live and radio venues throughout NY and NJ on a regular basis.
RescuePoetix™ founded “Just Add Sound”, a monthly open mic, in 2009, in Jersey City, where she currently resides. Just Add Sound will be reborn in 2014 as a Radio Show focusing on Artists, which include poetry, spoken word, producers, singers and the diversity within the artistic industry. Details coming soon. RescuePoetix™ has also founded “JC Opens Up the Mic”, a collaboration of participating open mics/poetry venues throughout Jersey City. JC Opens up the Mic is under redevelopment as a segment of Just Add Sound Radio, focusing on Jersey City and local artists.
Combining her love of House and Spoken Word, RescuePoetix™ recently founded “RescuePoetix™ and co-found SpokenMovement™ with partner Nunu Rox™, under which several budding projects, including recording Spoken Word to music, fall under.
Her first full spoken word release, “Shadow Dancer©” was released July 2011, a JoeFlame Production, on D# Sharp Records. This was the next step in the realization of a long built upon dream of recording Spoken Word to Music.
RescuePoetix™ continues to realize another dream: Writing to touch the masses. She has had the opportunity to be freelance writer for such sites as, MediaServicesNYC, Cyberjamz and 1200Dreams. Articles range from music reviews to interviews, from bios to non-fiction pieces.
A deep love for House Music also led RescuePoetix™ into promotions, marketing and events management. Given the opportunity by Open Bar Music/Media Services NYC/The Joint, RescuePoetix™ was fortunate to be part of the foundation that makes I’ll House You! (NYC) the living, breathing successes that it is. Working with Oscar Poche & Jessica Poche since the inception of their successful I’ll House You! Party in NY, DC and Miami has led to a greater understanding of promotion, event production and organization on various levels.
RescuePoetix ™ has had the honor of working with such talented producers as Soundscience, Tayo Wink, Eddie Ed, Sal Negro, DJ Punch, Calvin Morgan, Phil Hooton, Doc Link, Eman, Ralph Session, DJ Minx, Arturo Garces, RedDeep, CM2, DJ Buzzard, Neighborboy SA, Soul-Cat, Christian Scott, Karl Lambert, DJ Mbembe, The Vicmari, ZorzPost & Emme, Justin Imperiale, Jihad Muhammad, Soulbridge, DJ Guido P, John Khan & Earl Tutu, Oscar P, Toto Chiavetta, Chevy Leonardo, Oke Paso, Gabivon, DJ Speedy, Joseph Curtjay, Miss Luna and believes that the collaborations have made each unique vision and sound a solid and vibrant impact. With several upcoming projects with producers who range from the US to Europe to South Africa, she believes that the visions provided are limitless and the love of music is a universal language.
As an artist with Cyberjamz Records, this has also opened doors to delving deeper into House Music through promotion of daily live shows that span the globe, promotion of music through new release promotion and Traxsource and Stompy Top 10 and, under the mentorship of Sammy Rock, the intricate workings of sharing music with the masses on a regular basis. In June 2013 she was added to the Cyberjamz Staff as Manager, Promotions, Projects & Events, working closely with the CEO and VP of Cyberjamz, Catherine Harris Rowell, to further explore the growth and development of the Label and Radio Station on a global scale.
November 2013 saw the birth of Raw Honey Poets, a collaboration of nine talented poets under the guidance of Joshua Milan and Honeycomb Music. The premier project, “Happy”, released on Honeycomb Music as an introduction of Raw Honey Poets is available for free download at the Honeycomb Music site. Raw Honey Poets is currently in works with a second project, due out mid-2014.
RescuePoetix™ lives by the belief that it is critical to build strong rather than fast and that the foundation of all great things takes time to get it right.
The growth isn’t finished. It’s only just begun.
