Bio: Our Spoken Word presenters are TBA, but I guarantee you they will kick posterior. As for our honoree, let’s go to the interview with Pandora’s Collective here: http://www.pandorascollective.com/inttpaul.html
T Paul says he started Thundering Word Heard with the idea that he wanted to create a place where both music and spoken word could come together and be given a place that was their own. And he has done just that. After three years the room is still full every Sunday night even on a long weekend. It takes a lot of time, commitment and a big heart to keep putting on something like this every single week. But it has paid off. Thundering Word continues to be a great success and T Paul’s reputation as a host and organizer continues to grow as well.
“ I have my hands in a million and one things that all seem to have the center in that hub Thundering Word Heard.”
