Well, it isn't a conversation if most responses don't start or end in a poem. At least, that's the way with Spirit Thom and it's a true poet's spirit he keeps. Listen on as we discuss life, travels, the heart of the common man, philosophical tid-bits, poetry, more poetry, and so on. Listen as yours truly chokes in awe as this bright man knits art into the conversation, a moment of woven words.
Thom Woodruff is originally from Queensland, Australia where he discovered music and poetry as a young man. Now living in Austin, Texas, he spends most of his time traversing the poetry scene in bright colors and with bold performances. He often marries his poetry with music, seeing both as equally strong components in the delivery. His prominence in the community goes beyond the spoken word and into his hand-crafted poetry journals, which he distributes for free at every event. He describes himself as a "global radical networker and activist for promoting the live creative arts at every possible opportunity."
