6 FEAT: THE TRUTH
IS SPOKEN (UPDATE

UPDATE: Word has it that Carmen 56 is entering into a distribution deal with Caroline and 3V Method, the imprint launched by Alex Valenti and Matt Steger. BMI is also said to be highly supportive of the spoken-word entity. Stay tuned for further updates. 


Carmen 56 and its roster of poets have released a collection of 11 odes titled 6 Feat. Consisting of spoken-word pieces set to musical soundscapes, the set—which takes on issues of systemic racism, cultural identification and self-transformation—is a bracing survey of eloquent young voices that have been developed and nurtured in Diane Luby Lane’s award-winning Get Lit poetry program. 

Featuring Get Lit poems alongside newer pieces inspired by America's current political and social landscape, the 11-track album includes artists like Monique Mitchell, Cyrus Roberts, Marquesha Babers, Jazmine Williams, Maia Mayor, Dharma Lemon, Tyris Winter and more.

The set was produced by Shevy Smith and Executive-produced by Khalid Jones, Luby Lane and Samuel Curtis; a portion of the proceeds will go toward programming at Get Lit - Words Ignite.
