Movie Star Faces - The Verna Cannon

Local musician, poet and graphic designer Marcus Amaker has kept busy since he became an Academy of American Poets fellow last year. Besides recently launching Free Verse Press to bring publishing opportunities to poets in the Charleston area, Charleston’s prolific poet laureate just released his 34th solo album, ELECTROPOEMS, on Bandcamp and has an anthology of local middle and high school student poetry in the works. It’s safe to say Amaker doesn’t stay in one lane project wise. He gave City Paper his top five albums for managing his creative ADHD.

I’m Not Sorry, I Was Just Being Me – King Hannah
Recordings from the Åland Islands – Jeremiah Chiu & Marta Sofia 
Lovers Prayers – Ida 
Movie Star Faces – The Verna Cannon 
Zeal & Ardor – Zeal & Ardor
