Cloudy Day Art #71 – Andrea DeAngelis

This week’s poetry podcast features an interview with poet and singer/songwriter Andrea DeAngelis of the band .

We discuss her thoughts on poetry, poetry workshops, her inspirations, and her band.

I asked her two bring two poems:

  • A poem that she wrote during a time of great joy.
  • A poem that she wrote during a time of great sadness.

Andrea also shares her poem “Erase Stick” which was later turned into the song “Erase Face” that is on Makar’s current album ““. I play the song at the end of the interview.

  1. This was a fascinating interview and poetry reading. I thoroughly enjoyed it. The difference between poetry readings and poetry workshops is that with readings, the only audience feedback is praise; in workshops it tends to be pointed criticism. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. But I’ve been in stifling workshop situations; the solution is simple: get out!

  2. Thanks, Robert. I really enjoyed this interview.

    Good point on the difference between poetry readings and poetry workshops. Never really thought of it that way…
