Wednesday Open Mic Poetry hosted by Jonathan Tucker
Kyla Jenee Lacey is a poet from Central Florida. Her first poem was copyrighted when she was ten years old. Formerly known as The Rising Phoenix, she reverted back to her birth name because The Rising Phoenix started to sound kind of whack. She speaks German, French and Spanglish and is a graduate of with a degree in History from the University of Central Florida. She was offered a teaching opportunity, but turned it down because being a starving artist will feel way cooler when she is old and wants to tell her grandkids stories. She has featured all over the Southeast, not including her almost forty college performances in FL, GA, WI,TN, IA, OH, IL, IN, NC, SC, MO, LA and VA. She was a member of the famed Sacred Sounds Slam Team in Southern Fried Poetry Slam, which helped her to make ‘Final Stage’ on her first attempt in 2012. Kyla’s first poetry CD, titled “A\Way With Words” was released in December of 2010 and her second “Lady Brings the Blues” was released in June of 2012. She is currently working on her first book of poetry and short stories. She has featured at famed poetry spots as far south as Miami and as far north as Milwaukee, she has also opened up plenty of doors for old people.
