Street Poet and Performance Artist HRSH REYALITEE has been performing professionally and independently since 2010, and released her first project “To:My Future From:My Past With Love, The Present Vol 1 (A book) published independently with ‘Two Pens and Lint’ based in Philly by Christopher K.P. Brown, as well as began riding the trains reciting poetry underground, all that same year. In 2011, Hrsh began producing the ‘THEE OPEN MIC’ show: Street Poets NYC began that same year. It was a show that transformed New York City, and the Open Mic scene in a special way. For the next 3 years, She dedicated most of her time to the project.
“Thee Open Mic changed my life, I learned so much. It was a lot to do the show mental, emotional and financially. We were and are still completely independent through all the stages of the show. We worked as a team and made it happen and continue to do so. Myself and fellow partners would do anything to make sure that every month we brought THEE OPEN MIC. A roller coaster isn’t even half of a description but I loved every second. I lived for every second.” She entered into the world of digital recording in 2012, discussing the creative process Hrsh mentions, “First I watched Black, feel me? He knows what he’s doing when it comes to how to move in a studio as far as recording. It’s different for me being in the studio, the stage is my release. I live to perform at heart.” Black Dangerfield produced the album included with his own original beats to compliment Hrsh Reyalitee’s unique style of poetry. The album includes 5 loaded tracks and 1 bonus track featuring Supe The Dude, Street Poet.
“I’ve known supah for about 4 years now, that’s my brother. He wrote a poem inspired by my poem, ‘Training Days’. I wanted him to share it, I love it.”, says Hrsh R., she plans to continue her leadership on the production team of ‘THEE OPEN MIC’ show. The TRAINING DAYS tour will begin May 2015.
