SheBeKeke likes to turn her poems into songs. Previous works, Moonwhile and Abecedarian, showcase a mixture poetry and sound. Not all words can live on the page. Someone called her sound “gospel folk” once but she isn’t too sure if she agrees.
She has supported artists such as Kate Tempest, The Last Poets, Saul Williams and OSHUN. Her work has been presented at venues high profile venues and platforms such as Tate Modern, Blue Dot Festival and Glastonbury’s Rum Shack Stage.
Ephemera is an attempt to capture those fleeting moments that float away then form the female experience. Inspired by a collection of her poems, SheBeKeke has collaborated with producer, Tom Leah and riveting cellist and vocalist, Abel Selaocoe, to explore her shifting femininity. I Am Phem.
The work will be accompanied by a digital zine titled I Am Phem via ISSUU.
