Born and raised in the North Leitrim Glens, Stephen is an All-Ireland Slam Poetry champion. He was described as a highlight of the 2014 Electric Picnic in the Irish Times. He performed to crowds estimated in excess of 100,000 people on the streets of Dublin. He's headlined a number of events ranging from the poetry stage at Castlepalooza festival in Co. Offaly to 'The Drunken Retort' in Grand Rapids, Michigan in the U.S. He's featured at nights ranging from Out-Spoken in London to the Lingo Festival in Dublin and also featured in the documentary 'A Rebel Act - Poems That Shaped The Nation' that aired on RTE1. His work aims to bring poetry back to the people and to remove the elitism often associated with the art.
