Toronto based Spoken Word Artist Vanessa McGowan Presented by Everett Poetry Nite ~ January 15, 2015.

Musical Guest: Keylin Mayfield

Well, I make rhythmic, melodic sounds that kind of resemble songs with a guitar shaped box and strings. And I play anywhere I can, mostly around Snohomish and King county. You can find my sounds on Facebook and Soundcloud.
