Marvin Tate & Friends
Marvin Tate is a performance poet, lyricist, published author, collected visual artist and educator.

His recent collaborations with Sound-Artist Joseph C. Mills and Video/Performance Artist, Jefferson Pinder highlight his ability to combine spoken word and performance with other forms of mediums, producing outstanding works of juxtaposition and improvisation.

His collaboration with singer songwriter Tim Kinsella in a project titled Tim Kinsella Sings the Songs of Marvin Tate with Leroy Bach and Angel Olsen, released on Joyful Noise Records (2013) is a testament to this.

Tate was recently awarded a grant from the Poetry Foundation to teach poetry in The Statesville Correctional Center(for men), and was selected by The Propeller Fund to revisit his old neighborhood in North-Lawndale, Chicago to produce a series of performances called Public Singing.

Marvin Tate is the founder and ringleader of the legendary funk band D-settlement, a funkadelic-infused band that continues to receive critical acclaim after forming in the late nineties.
