Poetry Live is thrilled to present:
Eliana Gray & Being
Eliana Gray is a writer from Ōtepoti. Their style is elliptical, sometimes confronting, always filtering towards the cracks. They have had work accepted both in print and online, won the 2013 University of Otago Poetry Competition and was a finalist at the 2013 National Poetry Slam. They have self published two chapbooks and their first full length collection, ‘Eager to Break’ will be available from Girls On Key Press this April.
Crushingly tender, open-hearted surf pop with clear-eyed lyrics, pressed through tumbling guitars and the magnetic vocal tone of Jasmine Balmer.
