Benjamin Zephaniah, pioneering dub poet, writer, social commentator and music maker has teamed up with renowned producer & engineer, The Sea (Toots & The Maytals, Rodney P, Massive Attack,The Wailers, Buju Banton) & created the incredibly timely album, Revolutionary Minds.
As a live Entity, the five strong Revolutionary Minds expertly provide rich, upbeat, hypnotic dub rhythms behind Benjamin’s beloved vocal and lyrical mastery. Amongst these backing vocals are supplied by Amy True, an artist in her own right she is fast becoming one of the most influential and talked about personalities in the UK Hip Hop scene, being equally formidable in both her ability to sing, and her ability to deliver fast paced gritty lyricism. Revolutionary Minds as a body of work tackles the indigestible topic of the world we live in today, political & economic corruption, global warming, rampant racism, fascist patriarchy…unfortunately we could go on & on.

I started in Bristol in 2014 exploring and enjoying again my childhood love of roses. Using my passion I combine roses with some of my favourite things, chocolate, tea and gorgeous English summer fruits.
Ecuador with its equatorial climate and fertile soils produces some of the finest cocoa beans in the world. I use Ecuadorian beans only and so describe my chocolate as ‘Single Origin’ and combine it with the finest organic Persian Rose Oil which is literally worth its weight in Gold. I blend aromatic teas with organic English roses, and adore the delicate scents. Delectable English strawberries and raspberries which I love are blended with highly fragrant rose petals in my preserves.
Yes everything is vegan as am I. My philosophy is to make delicious things but not shout about the vegan aspect so non vegans won’t even notice that the dairy is missing.
