Adam Kammerling cut his teeth at the open-mic cyphers and rap battles of the Brighton hip-hop scene. Since 2008 he has been performing spoken word across the UK and overseas.
Weaving numerous voices through his own, he incorporates elements of poetry, rap, theatre and comedy to create immersive, engaging works that push the boundaries of performance poetry. His work encompasses the finer and grimier points of everyday life, celebrating the minutiae with an observant eye and a healthy dose of surreal humour.
Adam is the Brighton Hammer and Tongue Slam Champion 2010, the Hackney Slam Champion 2011 and the Hammer and Tongue National Slam Champion 2012.
As a collaborative artist he has worked with the London Sound Painting Orchestra at Shunt, and members of the afro/ska/reggae/punk band, Animal Circus.
He has performed at Glastonbury, Latitude, Big Chill and numerous other festivals. He has done theatre shows in Soho and at Bristol Old Vic and has performed all over the South of England with his collaborative musical projects.
Adam delivers workshops in schools and has also worked with the London charities, Art Against Knives and Tender, and the Cambodian NGO, Tiny Toones, promoting spoken word and rap as positive and healthy forms of self-expression.
