Join us this Wednesday as we talk with spoken word artist Sunni Soper.
We broadcast Writing on the Air every Wednesday from 6-7pm Central Texas Time on 91.7FM KOOP. You can also stream the show live by clicking on the mini player at the top of the KOOP.org page.
Sunni Soper’s voice is direct and strong, yet warm and inviting. Her East Coast accent is infused with a whimsical vibe drawn from the West and a breezy meter reminiscent of an Austin summer evening. Her words transcend region, time and genre to present audiences with moments that immediately resonate – at once familiar, but unmistakably fresh.
Is this spoken word or hip hop? Forget the question. Forget such arbitrary lines of artistic boundary. Like those of state and city borders, some lines are best ignored. Instead, focus on Sunni’s lines. Linger in the air between breaths and the scenes brought together through rhyme.
