“First, I would like to acknowledge that we are on the un-ceded land and territory of the Haida Nation.
I call myself Earle July, in reference to my birthdate.
I am a local spoken word performer on Haida Gwaii. I have been writing and performing poetry for over 15 years, beginning in Edmonton, AB, moving to Vancouver, BC, and finally to Masset, where I reside with my new family. Love and praises to my partner Raven Ann Potschka, our children, Tyler-Simone and Phoenix-Jack, and my first daughter, Ella Alice.
I am inspired by collaboration, often connecting with musicians and producers to create soundscapes to illustrate my poetry. As a writer, I am influenced by film and music such as progressive rock, hip hop, and electronic dance music. The themes of my words usually blend nature, futurism, and dream logic.”
