There’s something special about Kavon Cortez Jones.
The 22-year-old spoken word artist speaks softly, but eloquently, making every word count.
He’s a lifelong Milwaukeean, a graduate of Riverside High School and has spent his adult life pursuing his three major passions: mentoring kids, cycling and, above all, penning poetry.
If you check out his Soundcloud page, you’ll see track after track of original poetry and spoken word. Take some time, he is truly inspiring.
One of my favorites — and one of Milwaukee’s judging by its high play counts — is his original piece “A Love Letter To Milwaukee.”
Listen to the complete piece below, plus listen to our interview with the Milwaukee poet.
