Hip-Hop roots combined with the day-to-day sentiment of a man trying to figure things out


Born and raised in the city of Birmingham, Steven Camden aka Polarbear is one of the most respected spoken word artists in the UK. After an accidental fall into spoken word involving a broken P.A system and a complete misunderstanding, he developed into a fully-fledged spoken word artist known for delivering stories that make sense. In his unique performances, language and rhyme patterns from his Hip-Hop roots combine with the day-to-day sentiment of a man trying to figure things out.

Performances at Glastonbury, OneTaste, Electric Picnic and Jazz Café, as well as a UK tour in 2006, have built up his reputation as a storyteller for the twenty-first century. His story If I Cover My Nose You Can’t See Me toured the UK in 2008.
