Jane is a contemporary folk storyteller who brings moments of joy, sorrow and reflection to life through song, poetry and improvised spoken word performances.
Carmen Main is a spoken word performer from Melbourne. Her style is personal, attempts immediacy, and is heavily influenced by pop culture, music and art. She blurs lines between poetry and catharsis- giving voice to the layers of being a person. She overthinks most things.
Carmen received an Honourable Mention at The Melbourne Spoken Word Prize 2015 and is included in the audio journal Audacious Volume 2. Carmen is a former host of ‘Spoken Word’, on 3CR.
She has featured at many Melbourne poetry gigs, enjoys listening to and being on the open mic and is grateful to be able to share her words with others.
