Charlie Dark is a dynamic part of the United Kingdom's poetry and performance scene as a writer, producer and DJ known for flamboyant gestures and vocal gymnastics.
He is one third of the hip hop-inspired trio Attica Blues, and has toured around the globe (both independently and with the band) to points as far dispersed as Tokyo, New York and Berlin. He makes regular appearances on the literature and spoken word circuit, is an experienced tutor and workshop facilitator, and has been a Poet Coach for the London Teenage Poetry Slam for three years running.
Charlie founded Blacktronica, a monthly showcase of the black electronic music scene in Britain.
From humble beginnings as a Hip-Hop DJ, Mister Gee honed his spoken word skills as the host of the renowned performance poetry club Brix-tongue and is now one of the stars of the UK poetry scene. He has performed at the New York Nuyorican Poets Café and the Black Lily night in Philadelphia (home to Jill Scott and the Roots), as well as at the Edinburgh Festival. He runs workshops in schools and his album Poetry in the Key of Gee was released to critical acclaim.
Mister Gee is a co-winner of a Sony Gold Award for Radio as the resident poet on the Russell Brand Show on BBC Radio 2, and is the resident poet of the hit West-End musical Into The Hoods.
