Charlie Newman ignites his performance poetry with a drive, spark and pugnaciousness that he'd quickly acknowledge as typical of any native (or any survivor?) of Newark, New Jersey, USA.

But he's a radical transplantee in at least a couple senses of that term. Newman's professional and musical careers also have led him through: Elizabeth, NJ; West Orange, NJ; Blairstown, NJ; Parkville, MO; New York City; Chicago; Winston Salem, NC; Nashville, TN; Louisville, KY; Orlando, FL; Louisville, KY (again); and finally back to Chicago. In this last place, he's settled well into the local performance poetry sphere.
