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

Oh-Dub's members, Blank Space & strong.cottonwoods, first met as battling rivals in '05 while vying for positions on Victoria's inaugural SLAM Poetry team. Their subsequent collaborations led to the formation of OW & The National Microphone Association (NMA), an independent artists' record label/distribution network.

Since embarking on an epic zero-budget coast-to-coast tour in '06 to promote their debut album, From Our Cold Dead Hands, The Outspoken Wordsmiths have delivered their vernacular activism to receptive audiences in a diverse variety of venues between Victoria and Halifax. From basement punk shows to poetry events, political benefits to underground raves, high school performances to hiphop bar shows, crowds can't get enough of the Outspoken Wordsmiths' unpredictable stage chemistry & energetic beatbox hijinx.
