Brendan Hawthorne hails from the Black Country in the industrial heartland of England, which has forged his attitude to writing and performing poetry, occasionally even in dialect. Sometimes hard-hitting, sometimes delicate and poignant, his work examines the range of human experience from factory gates via 1970's tower blocks to the survival of humour in modern times.
He is a co-founder of Poetry Wednesbury and regularly performs at pubs, clubs and festivals, including Birmingham's ArtsFest, and has also been the West Midlands Ambassador for Smooth Radio where he was seen regularly on the accompanying television advert.
He is Poet in Residence at Wightwick Manor (National Trust), Wolverhampton, and The Crystal Tea Room, Stourbridge. He takes community and corporate commissions, collaborating with artists in all artforms (see: Morrison's superstore, Wednesbury) and appears in print: Urban Dawn, The AllNight Cafe, Slide, Station 15, Exhibit B and on CD: 'E Day 'Arf Spake Funny
Brendan also writes his own songs, which can be serious, comedic and soul searching or any combination of the three! He works as a solo performer and also with a folk/blues combo ‘SO IT GOES’ with Kerry Halford where he sings, plays guitar and harmonica though not always at the same time!
Born in 1961, he is married, with two cats and a retreat summerhouse.
Born Jamaica 1967. Lived in Brixton from infant.
Drifted into petty, then more serious, crime when youth.
Several prison sentences, including one for armed robbery
and assault. In prison discovered poetry and writing.
Managed to reform. Writes hard, uncompromising poetry
using previous experience as inspiration. Trying to
influence youth not to follow bad example.
