VOYCEMAIL is the debut spoken word CD from Shaashawn "The Voyce" Dial. A performance poet since the Spring of 1999, she is no stranger to massing words, gracing the stage or blessing the microphone. Pregnant with this project for years, Shaashawn is excited to finally birth the beginning of her poetic legacy. Her original poems date from the late 90's when she moved from Missouri to Pennsylvania to the present day. Her poetic stylings range in topic from love, sex, friendship, abuse survival, weight to living in a post 9.11 world and more. VOYCEMAIL is a journey into one day of Shaashawn's life as she checks her voicemails on her 33rd born day to receive electronic affection from friends and family and reflects upon her varied life experiences. VOYCEMAIL is a mix of Shaashawn's poetic creations and the music of Jeff "J-Lin" Lindsay. There are 42 tracks total (songs 10, Poems 17, Interludes 15) And they call her ...
