Blake Melvin AKA The Show is a traveling spoken word artist from the West Philadelphia area. Blake is the perfect balance of nature's good and nurture's evil. He uses his "stew" (poetry with multiple ingredients to create substance) to personally help him separate the two, while becoming the freedom his audience is seeking. Blake uniquely blends conversational prose and hip hop cadences with a one man show stage presence, seemingly capturing the audience's love and attention. A featured poet, self published author, #freethinker, and a #rawartist, Blake is one to keep an eye on in this new class of emerging poets.
