Session Artists

Emilie Zoey Baker is an award-winning Australian poet and spoken-word performer. She was the winner of the 2010 Berlin International Literature Festival’s Slam!Review. She performs regularly at arts and literature festivals, and is the creative director of OutLoud.

Henry Wagons is the mad professor of song. His fierce intellect was once hurtling toward a career as a philosopher, but was derailed by a record deal, a thirst for whisky and insatiable need to make noise. There is no songwriter who casts the same kind of ever-curious, startlingly present shadow on stage. The man is a master craftsmen of the stage, and carves out his place upon it like no-other.
