The Outspoken Wordsmiths are a bi-coastal pair of beatboxing pirates who've taken to shore to spread their a-cappella antics & circle-(A)-political poetics by any means necessary.

This high-energy power duo has traveled extensively across Canada, performing live shows that incorporate spoken word monologues, spontaneous beatbox jams and freestyle rhyme sessions alongside tightly-rehearsed numbers showcasing rapid-fire lyrical exchanges set atop seamless vocal percussive soundscapes -- thus earning themselves a reputation as a versatile, crowd-pleasing act that leaves audiences thirsting for more.

In a world of sleek, artificial perfection Sasha Mann aka mONKEYwRENCH is fresh because he is so far from perfect that you've gotta respect it. Honesty, spontaneity, as well a desire to challenge musical and political status quos mix with self produced beats and defiant rhymes. Sometimes he rocks the guitar or the banjo in a raw folk style. Other times he shouts poems or beatboxes on stage but whatever he does is filled with passion and energy. mONKEYwRENCH is verbally armed to smash apathy one house party at a time with just enough self-mockery and heaps of compassion.

SAVAGE FAM

SAVAGE FAMILY - savage from the root words salvaticus and salvage meaning "of the woods." HGS Higher Ground Struggle is a collective movement of Indigenous mc’s/lyricists and producers along with the many who have helped to establish the concepts and beliefs that drive our music. SAVAGE FAMILY / HGS are spread throughout the United Snakes primarily based out of the Northwest and the Midwest regions. We are the people, the unwanted, the ignored, the marginalized and the forgotton. . We do not assume that one is any better than another and have come to the realization that as long as our communities are un healthy, we cannot consider ourselves to be health individuals regardless of what we have been able to achieve or accomplish. Until all are free, we are all imprisoned and we have committed ourselves to leave no one behind in our struggle for truth and recognition of our purpose to exist as human and spirit. The basis of the movement is to utilize traditional and contemporary wisdom of our Indigenous peoples for the means of empowerment. The lyrics represent a voice of Indigenous revolution for social change in communities that are plagued by the social ills created through colonization and genocide. SAVAGE FAMILY / HGS was not founded or established by one person or a particular group of people, instead the foundation of the SAVAGE FAMILY THEORIES OF (r)EVOLUTION movement is in our Indigenous brothers and sisters worldwide and the ideologies that have driven our peoples since time immemorial. The movement has embraced the art of lyricism and spoken word to be a useful means of spreading messages of hope, pride, and empowerment into our communities. WARRIORS ARE BORN, SOLDIERS ARE MADE. "You can cut the flowers, but you cannot stop the spring from coming." "ONE DOES NOT WAIT FOR ALL CONDITIONS TO BE RIGHT TO START THE REVOLUTION, THE FORCES OF THE REVOLUTION ITSELF WILL MAKE THE CONDITIONS RIGHT."
