Hold Your Own
British Spoken Word Artist Kate Tempest tells it like it is

Rapper, award winning poet, playwright and activist Kate Tempest mesmerises people with her provocative words about contemporary life.

Her bright talent and burning words spotlight the glaring issues no one’s talking about and sear the truth into our souls. The Spoken Word Artist says she had a “wayward youth”, living in squats, “hanging around on picket lines rapping at riot cops,” and her courageous contemporary craft has an edgy beauty that is both electric and moving.

Performing at Glastonbury, she urges us: “When time pulls lives apart…hold your own. When everything is fluid and nothing can be known with any certainty … Hold your own.”
