Introducing George The Poet: Search Party: A Collection of Poems (Hardback)

Usually despatched within 2 days.


'The title is Search Party - the idea being that we're all out here looking for something, and my poems are my way of finding myself.'

A young black poet blending spoken word and rap; an inner city upbringing with a Cambridge education; a social consciousness with a satirical wit and infectious rhythm - George The Poet is the voice of a new generation.

Search Party is a thought-provoking and deeply autobiographical collection. From the overtly political 'Go Home' to the deeply personal 'Full-time'; the narrative poems that offer vivid and unapologetic snapshots of inner-city life, such as 'His Mistakes', 'Believer' and the anthemic 'My City'; to the provocative social commentary in 'Lazy Dog' and 'YOLO'; to the inspiring, idea-driven pieces such as 'The Power of Collaboration' and 'School Blues', George takes poetry into new territories and to new audiences, offering a different way to talk about the things that matter, to explore his own experience and ideas, and encourage others explore theirs.

George The Poet's mesmerising and unforgettable live performances have earned him critical acclaim. From sell-out headline gigs and YouTube hits, to recording his own music, and now his first collection of poetry, George uses his work to speak truth to power and challenge our preconceived ideas about the society we're living in.

Whether you're searching for yourself, for answers, for change - join the search party.

George The Poet's socio-political, street-savvy verse has already attracted the attention of artists, actors, politicians and royalty alike. In addition to breaking startling new ground on the poetry circuit, he has been enlisted as an ambassador for The Duke of York's iDEA initiative, a regular speaker for TED and an advisor for the BBC diversity trust. Now the 23 year old BRITs Critic's Choice Award nominee is making significant inroads into music, having featured on Labrinth, Emeli Sande, Paolo Nutini and Naughty Boy records, collaborated with Idris Elba on his forthcoming 'Mi Mandela' album, and supported Nas, Maverick Sabre and Common on tour. Following on from the recently released Radio 1 playlisted and championed debut single '1,2,1,2', his 'The Chicken and The Egg' EP is due out on 1st December 2014 via Chris Blackwell's PALM, while the announcement of a nationwide headline UK tour in February comes hot on the heels of a sell out live show at The Scala. With his debut album due for release via Island records around next year's General election and his first book of poetry set to be published in the Spring, 2015 will see George The Poet not only emerge as one of the UK's most unique music acts, but also as the compelling voice of a generation.
