I think it’s safe to say Kevin Patrick of Field Medic is the hardest working man in folk business. Between his releases with Rin Tin Tiger, this solo project, countless D.I.Y. music videos and Sunroom Recordz & Salon label responsibilities, he has somehow found the time to write some poetry.
Haikus to be precise – short but dense and packed with meaning. My personal favorite from the collection entitled “Hella Haikus Vol. 3”:
bring your fears into
the world of the living &
learn they are empty
Can you dig it? There’s many more where that came from (33 actually) and the hand-assembled booklets can be purchased through the Sunroom website.
Also, check out the latest video from his excellent Me, My Gibberish & The Moon EP “Full Grown,” and be sure to catch Field Medic on the accompanying tour. Dates are included below.
