Born into the Chicago poetry scene in the mid '90s, Journey's passion for entertaining soon blossomed. He became a regular at various open mics on Chicago’s North and West sides. This is an award winning poet and composer who has been inspired by fellow West siders like Maria McCray, Reggie Gibson and Avery R Young. Journey’s smooth delivery and unique word-play launched him into a position to host his own open mic at a North side cafe. This was the catalyst behind his development of a network of likeminded poets, singers and musicians. That endeavor lead to a Neo-Soul jam band based in Chicago, of which Journey is co-founder.
