My Favourite Thing is a video feature where the Georgia Straight gets interesting folks from around town to list off, among other things, their favourite performers, live gigs, and singers. And, of course, their favourite thing.
Acclaimed spoken word artist, poet, and author Shane Koyczan has just come off the heels of a sold out coast-to-coast Canadian tour, and last week he set aside some time to tell the Straight about a few of his favourite things.
He's teamed up with folk musicians Short Story Long again for his forthcoming album, Debris, which will be released through his website on September 25. His previous album with the group, Remembrance Year, featured his poem "To This Day", which went viral on YouTube and surpassed 16 million views. Koyczan's poem "Move Pen Move" was also featured on Dan Mangan's Roboteering EP.
Koyczan's next show in the Lower Mainland will be held at Mission's Clarke Theatre Foundation on October 18.
