Unwritten Stories- Brandy Row
If you are into poetry and music, this one is definitely for you.
Unwritten Stories is a collection of poems and lyrics from Brandy Row's music.
Brandy Row is a London based, solo artist, songwriter, poet, composer & film-maker. He constantly creates new material, plus regularly performing live in London, Europe & the USA. He has been heavily into music especially from the 60s, 70s & 80s since the age of 12, and has carried on with this direction to become a regular performing artist internationally.
This is one of those books that you'll want to have in your home and can read over and over again. Each poem & lyrics are very unique and have very different hidden meanings in them. If you appreciate language and have a have a thirst for beautifully written words then this book is for you.
I also have to say that I love the gorgeous artwork and photography too, it's visually stimulating which is always nice to have in a book.
One of my favourite poems/lyrics comes from the title-
'The killers of virtue only honour the brave
Elites heed the cause when there fortune be made
The structure of power only the ruthless can win
Tickets to the ivory tower then lock themselves in
I want to run run so far away
I want to run run into a better day
Taking hold of me
Into sweet tranquility
Can you hear the whispers
In the wind of change
The perception of a brand new world'
For me, this poem is very current with our political climate. The great things about poems is that you can interpret them in so many ways and that's the beauty of this book. Some hit you in the heart and some reach your core being. It's excellent!
Also Brandy is the nicest soul you will ever come across. He's a very talented musician and is always doing live shows, for more info check out his website HERE!
