Bio and Booking

Ursula Rucker


„I consider it a great gift to discover words. Sometimes something touches me. I write down a word and let it work in my head. It can take months or even a year for that word to multiply and become a text. I start, lose myself, and arrive.“ Ursula Rucker


Ursula Rucker, her, solo Poetry- Spoken word performance

Philadelphia-based poet and performance artist, Ursula Rucker, is probably one of the most exceptional artists of our time – the Queen of Spoken word. Critics and listeners across the globe have been enchanted with her captivating vocals, diverse repertoire and accessible poetic verses that Ursula unfolded in the course of her full five albums by now. Her unique work on essential social issues often had her compared to legendary poets of the Black Arts Movement, such as Sonia Sanchez and Gil Scott-Heron.
