When I Was Young

Emmett Wheatfall

In cart Not available Out of stock

Innovative and inspired spoken word poetry with world-class musical accompaniment; this CD is a must have.

A fresh new talent in the world of jazz, blues, and gospel music is the soulful and deeply spiritual poet and recording artist Emmett Wheatfall. With a commanding voice and strong writing chops, this new lyrical poet is somebody lovers of poetry and spoken word need to have on their play list.

His freshman CD titled "When I Was Young" says it all. With tracks that address sensitive topics like love, romance, fidelity, betrayal, and faith, what more needs to be said. Emmett Wheatfall is America’s new social, political, and storytelling poet.

Bound to be a big time hits are "When I Was Young", "Dance With Me", "In Your Arms"," I Hear, I Believe I Hear", and that most monster track “Pretty Black Girl You So Fine." Spoken word poems like "Ms. Janice Scroggins & Her 88 Keys", "Love Was Brewing", and "I Know You Tough And All That" create a nice foundation for the jazz and blues poetry.

His artistic creativity dates back to high school and college where acting and directing were his passions. Over the years he has done voice over work and is an annual presenter of the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I Have A Dream Speech during Black History Month. A deeply religious man, husband, and father, Emmett is well versed in the matters of life.

Emmett says poetry introduced itself to him. Asked to recite a poem written by a friend, it stands today as the key that opened his mind and voice to the literary and spoken artistry of poetry.

An intellectual, spiritual and political journey of art and philosophy from Spoken Word artist Emmett Wheatfall.

CD: I SPEAK Narrative Inside Panel

Emmett is a talented writer and poet. His work examines life poetically. At times his topics are analogous and metaphoric. His expositions on life reveal an innate yearning to reveal the world as his imagination sees it. His poetry represents important works of art as well as thoughtful contemplation. He says, "I do not write poetry for self promotion; I write to appease the creative hunger raging within my soul."

“I speak.” What a powerful declaration. This recording of poems represents a formal declaration of his poetic musing. The poem “I Speak” sets the tone for the utterances that follow.

“O’ Ancient of Poets” pays homage in singular terms to all the great poets. Those of us who love poetry wait in anxious anticipation the reading of a sonnet written by a great poet from long ago.

“A Black Prince” is metaphoric and asks the reader to interpret its meaning. “The Queen” is a clever piece. “Give Me Rise” speaks loudly; contrary to its key word apathy. A powerful verse in the piece is “Is there no breath in the burden you bury?”

“Sensibilities” and “Kiss Me” are for the romantic. “Spring Is Here”, “There Stood I”, and “Reflections” are contemplative pieces. Included in such thoughts are “Winter Warnings!” and “The Little Paper Boat.”

“Not All Color Boys Can Sing” is a reflective piece. “My Face” is about self-examination. It acknowledges Blackness as beautiful. “When I’m Old” is about the end of life. What will be said and, was the life lived worth living?

This CD is a compilation of musings set in poetic form and verse. Enjoy the variety of settings and feel that these poetic pieces bring to you; the listener and lover of poetry.
