Poet Collier Steps Into Studio for ‘Between Beauty & Bedlam’

Christian J. Collier, a Chattanooga poet/musician, knows how to wow a crowd—he’s been invited to poetry slams in Atlantaand Nashville, and he hosts a local performance series, The Speakeasy.

But Collier has stepped away from the stage for his new project, Between Beauty and Bedlam.  It’s a spoken-word EP created in a recording studio.  Collier shows off his literary and production skills on this album, speaking his poems over hip-hop, ambient and electronic music he composed.

Collier will host a release party for the EP on Sunday, November 10th at 6 p.m. at Barking Legs Theater.  The party will feature live music, Detroit hip-hop and performances from Collier as well as another poet, Marcus Patrick Ellsworth.
