NY Poet/Spoken Word Artist: Shane Romero

Shane Romero is an international touring artist from Bedford-Stuyvesant (Brooklyn). He’s got a sharp tongue when it comes to his poetry. Shane started attacking venues like a set of flying knives at the tender age of 16. His poetry is a reflection of his personal life, what he sees on a daily basis. In his writings, he takes a direct shot, addressing issues of the inner city race, violence, the uphill battle of love, and his efforts of bettering himself. He hopes to touch everyone within earshot to his story; that they can relate, perhaps to help someone who may be going through similar situations.
Shane has taken part in major poetry slams throughout the states. By a young age, Shane achieved his dreams of being a full time spoken word artist, first moving to Los Angeles, CA for a short period of time where he featured at countless venues and colleges throughout the West Coast. Shane was a member 3 national poetry slam teams. In 2010 at the national poetry slam held in St. Paul, MN, he took second place in group piece finals. Shane has shared stages alongside many nationally acclaimed poets, completed multiple nationwide tours, and has taken on the world while on the international “Just Weight” tour. He was 1/4 of a traveling play production called “The Male Ego”, up-to-date he provides work for Hip Hop Mogul Russell Simmons YouTube Channel (ADD) and clothing line, “Argyleculture”. In summer 2016 Shane made his big screen debut in the movie “Fight Your Way Out”. Due to his game changing poetry and performances he’s been interviewed or featured by sites such as Huffington Post UK, Literary Manhattan, and Global Grind. 
Shane strives to give back to the community; youth who will follow in his footsteps. In 2008 Shane was the coach for the Inland Empire BNV youth slam team which was featured on HBO held in Washington, DC. Shane also teaches creative writing/poetry workshops while on tour to all age groups, and while in NYC Shane prides himself on going into the same public school system he grew up in to teach achieving your dreams is real and runs programs which helps young men of color grow into men, reach higher success, and close the achievement gap so many have experienced. Shane Romero will continue to bare his story and life on stage until the last word falls from his throat.
“I want to speak for the unspoken.” -Shane Romero
