Performing in a musical capacity since age six and writing for the past 18 years, Wakefield Brewster, aka: ‘da lyrical pitbull’, has made his dynamic presence on the scene with no uncertain terms. Writing in a political yet lyrical voice, he has blasted onto nearly 800 stages in the past eight years. He has performed at the Art Bar Reading Series, winning their first ever poetry slam, multimedia cabarets such as the ‘Red Cabaret’ and ‘Artist’s Play’, and The Children’s Wish Foundation via ‘Circus Project’. He has appeared on TV Ontario's ‘Imprint’, CBC’s Hot Type with Jian Gomeshi, Word on the Street, Scream in High Park 11, and was the featured poet for Canadian Music legend, Jane Siberry at the Royal Ontario Museum.  Wakefield is the founder of ‘b.funkee productionz’, an entertainment company specializing in multidisciplinary art shows, the ‘Pitbull Poetree Reading Seriez’ and is currently recording a double compact disc, The Other Brother. His first full length CD is entitled: Wakefield Brewster: da lyrical pitbull. In 2008, he captained the Calgary Slam Team in its inaugural hosting of the Canadian Festival of Spoken Word.
