Introducing

Andre Bradford, a.k.a. S.C. Says, is an Austin based slam poet who has been performing slam poetry since 2013. He's toured and featured at venues and universities across the country, and his work has been featured in the Huffington Post, The Edge radio, The Culture Trip, and Blavity. He is a two time Austin Poetry Slam Champion, a two time Texas Grand Slam Finalist, and was a member of the 2015 National Championship Team. He also once popped a bag of popcorn without burning a single kernel, which is arguably one of his greatest achievements. 

His poetry covers a gamut of topics ranging from being mixed race, to gun control, to mental health awareness, to never settling in relationships. Slam poetry is an art form he loves due to its raw vulnerability and it's ability to cultivate transparency and dialogues into many different walks of life.

As one of the main hosts of the APS Sunday Show, he has become a face for the Austin Poetry Slam. He seamlessly transitions audience banter into his emcee duties and the crowd absolutely loves him! SC has become such an integral part of the slam, it’s now impossible for me to imagine this scene without him.
