The Punk With A Northern Soul

Keiron Higgins
Poetry

The second collection of poetry by poet Keiron Higgins. Contains new poems, and some older material rewritten for the basis of this book.

The book is another diverse trip of how Keiron processes the world with a comedic edge, but he also this time touches on more serious subjects such as family, love, and life.

Keiron Higgins is a Punk Poet (and self proclaimed "Punk With a Northern Soul") from the aisle of Halifax, West Yorkshire.
Coming from a creative background which over the years has seen him in his hometown of Halifax be a former DJ, music producer and radio presenter, Keiron started doing spoken word as a secondary outlet to music production in 2013 after seeing the likes of close friend and fellow punk poet Cayn White over the years, and being spurned on by attending Genevieve Walsh's first spoken word night.
His poems usually told at a rapid pace (quoted by the Firm Of Poets as been as "Halifax's Lyrical Machine Gun)" usually contain themes about the love of his ever growing vinyl collection, outlooks of life and general satirazation of current world events. during in his 3 years of performing his prolific CV has seen him be a supporting poet for acts for the likes of Attila The Stockbroker and ex. Crass member Steve Ignorant. He is a regular at open mic nights in Sowerby bridge is often welcomed with praise and respect from his peers and headlining acts.
With popularity growing and encouragement from friends and family in 2017 he published his first collection "Rebel Without A Prose: The Writings Of A Working Class Fake.
