WATTLE & DAUB: singer/songwriters Tim Mocarski & Susan Haugland have been making music together since 2013. With a blend of humor and poignancy, they engage their audiences with sing-alongs and knowing glances. Their name comes from a centuries old construction method that they learned about while on a road trip through Idaho. In their own words: “We saw this country and its beauty. We thought of how immigrants from all over the world, of different races and different beliefs, have come to help build this nation, to weave it together, to strengthen it. We thought of how our own relationship is growing and weaving together. We believe in the country and in each other. We are making music. We are building our lives together. We want the nation to grow. We think the process is simple. All we need is some Wattle & Daub.”

Full of surprises!”

FEATURING:

Poet                       Fabu

Musicians          Bryan Drewyor

Poet                      JoAnn Chang

 

 

FABU, as she is professionally known, is a poet, columnist, storyteller, and educator.  She was the first African American Madison Poet Laureate. (2008-2012).  As a literary artist, she creates and shares writing that reflects living in Memphis, Tennessee, Nairobi, Kenya and Madison, Wisconsin.  She has published Poems, Dreams and Roses, In Our Own Tongues and Journey to Wisconsin:  African American Life in Haiku, winner of an Outstanding Achievement in Poetry by the Wisconsin Library Association (2012).  Fabu is a Pushcart Prize nominee in poetry in 2013 and 2014, and a Silver winner in Spoken Word/Poetry by Madison Magazine in 2014.  Remember Me:  Mary Lou Williams in Poetry is her latest poetry manuscript.  Her website is www.artistfabu.com.

 

 

JOANN CHANG began writing songs in 1975 in Texas. When she moved to Milwaukee in 1992, and became involved with Poet’s Monday, her poetry really took off. She read children’s books and collected children’s fantasy. Because she plays no external instruments she is a singer-songwriter in the truest sense of the word. Although she finds it especially challenging, she sometimes writes short fiction such as “Fairytales for People with a Short Attention Span,” and has an interest in what she calls “nonsense fiction, which she says, is also an extra creative challenge for her.

 

 

BRYAN DREWYOR takes in life, celebrates it, processes it, and tosses it back at us in one big, soul thumping, feet moving, mindful emotion. This predominantly self-taught performer grew up in the Midwest surrounded by a family full of musicians and thinkers. His voice is extremely refined and is as original as it gets. From childhood Bryan was heavily influenced by bluegrass, jazz, rock and folk; he inevitably connected with the piano at an early age and acoustic guitar soon after. The lyrics that fill his songs with life are deeply rooted in relationships and experiences that come from living, growing, and realizing life’s greater gifts. Bryan shares his understanding of the world and leaves us with a message well played and received.

Watch out for news about another BONK! event coming up fast–on April 25th we will BONK! again at the Racine Business Center for Get Behind The Arts.

 

 

FEATURING:

During that time he began playing his music and soon he was playing it throughout the US, Mexico, and the UK. His kudos include a 2005 Grammy listing for his song Hand of God, and spots on PBS’s Texas Music Cafe, SXSW, and on a number of festivals including a number of appearances at the Kerrville Folk Festival. His songs are included on the soundtrack of the movie Partners in Crime and have been recorded by Colin Boyd, Bonnie Whitmore, and other Austin and Nashville artists, and he has shared the stage and studio with a long list of top, Americana, blues, and country acts over the years. Of all these, he is especially fond of his work with jazz bass player Drew Phelps on Phelps’ debut, which they later performed in Texas and New York. He now resides in Kenosha with his wife Stephanie, who teaches at Carthage College, and his four children.
 
MARCO JAIMEZ has been playing music under the moniker MEXICO CITY IS SINKING since he was exactly 1 and a half years old.  Paxia Records released his first album in 2013, titled “Michi Gami.”  He recently successfully crowd-source-fundraised over $3,500 to fund a new EP titled “The Queen of Monster Island,” which was recorded at Skies Fall Studios (located just near the Kenosha/Racine county border), and will be released in late Spring.  Marco also plays in the hardcore band “Anchors of Empires.”

He is the author a self-titled collection of poetry, which was picked by Joyelle McSweeney for the 2010 Fence Modern Poets Series prize. He is also the author a chapbook, Skeetly Deetly Deet (Strange Cage press, 2012) and has a chapbook forthcoming in April of 2015 from Spork Press. Nick was featured in 2011 as one of fifteen emerging poets to watch for by Poets and Writers magazine and his self-titled book was chosen as one of the 10 Best Books of Poetry in 2010 by a Believer Magazine reader survey. In 2011, he completed a month-and-a-half-long book tour that traveled over 10,000 miles across the whole of America. His work has been taught at Notre Dame, Columbia College, Illinois Wesleyan, Marquette, Emory, Cleveland State and dozens of other schools across the country.  In Racine, he curates the BONK! performance series and occasionally blogs for thebonknessmonster.com
 
NICOLAS MOORE is a singer, actor, dancer, and spoken word artist. Born in Racine, he has lived in Kenosha most of his life. Nicolas has been performing and sharing his art (as he prefers to call it) for over 12 years. He has traveled to many places around the country sharing art with various students, organizations, churches, random crowds at open mics, and the people who life finds it necessary for him to connect with. Nicolas believes that life is to be lived and love is to be shared. His expression of art is a reflection of that message.
