Shimmy Boyle: Music Without the Music

I recently met a man named Shimmy Boyle. He’s a man of his words, a poet some might call him. I like “language magician” better, at least it suits him better. He has a way of wrapping up images in words even the best imaginations seldom can. It’s inspiring to say the least.

I won’t try to define what I find so mystical if for no other reason than I don’t want the defining process to kill the magic. Here is Shimmy Boyle performing one of his pieces entitled “These Rocks Can Read This Water The Way I Can Read a Book” from his new (and first!) book, “Recipe for a Mountain” at a recent friends album release show in Oakland. Enjoy and please do yourself a favor and check out his website www.shimmypoetry.com and pick up his debut book, “Recipe for a Mountain”. Enjoy
