Egypt Speaks, a Spoken Word Artist from Cleveland, Ohio, will release her new album 'Wanderer' on June 14, 2019. "I always enjoyed bedtime stories as a kid. From tales of dragons and knights to my daydreams, I always enjoyed taking those adventures with my heroes. From long car journeys to private moments, this season of my life has taught me so many lessons. The biggest of these may be that some of the greatest stories are ones that never had the chance to be told. These are letters from a wanderer and stories for the rest of us who may not have it all together or figured out. These stories are for you."
After releasing her first full-length album 'Stories' independently in 2014, Egypt has toured the country and beyond sharing her stories through the art of poetry.
