Leah V, Justin Gratta, and Ian Bamberger


Mike Geffner’s Inspired Word, one of New York’s most popular indie performance series, presents Variety Experience LIVE!, showcasing this city’s rising star musicians and poets.  

The night features rockin’ singer/songwriter/guitarist Ian Bamberger, whose infectious tunes draw from the likes of the Allman Brothers, Van Morrison, and Jimi Hendrixpoet/musician Justin Gratta, whose raw, intense Leonard Cohen-esque rhymes explore relationships and mental health and land squarely on the pulse; the self-reflective spoken word poet Leah V, whose Beat Generation inspired wordplay examines cultural identity and feminism.

Founded/Produced by former award-winning journalist Mike Geffner, InspiredWordNYC began in Jan. 2010.
