Kaie Kellough

"dig this hip notion round / re- sounding off the square nayshun..."

Kaie Kellough is a Montreal-based Caribbean Canadian writer, poet, and general word-sound systemizer. His first book, Lettricity, was published by Cumulus Press in 2004:

"...Lettricity is best read as a dialectic coposed of the spirit of jazz...and matters of nation and building. The book is suffused with samples and riffs from the diasporic canon, stylings of Kamau Brathwaite, George Elliott Clarke, and the present author are reworked and reworded." --Wayde Compton, Vancouver Rain Review of Books

Kaie's articles have appeared in national and local newspapers like the Globe and Mail, Rabble, and Montreal's Gazette. His poetry, fiction, and reviews have appeared in filling Station, Ash, Kola, and Matrix. Kaie has performed across xanada, often improvising with djs, percussionists, and other instrumentalists. In Montreal he is a root (m)ember of the extensive and respected KalmUnity Vibe Collective. Kaie's performances have been featured on Bravo Television, Zed TV, and CBC Radio One.

Kaie is a radio programmer on SoulPerspectvies, a Caribbean Community program founded in 1992. He is also the founder/organizer of dub outfit The Word Sound System, a group of five poets (two of whom double as live musicians), and one DJ. Kaie is currently working on a second book of poetry and co-editing an anthology of black Montreal writing.
