Deonte Scott instantly hooks audiences with his raw storytelling experiences that are current, inspirational and thought-provoking. The talented poet put his profound diction to paper nearly 20 years ago, and now he is an internationally published, award-winning spoken word success in the urban entertainment and arts world.
The Chicago-born, Houston-based vocal wordsmith also is an innovative performing artist, MC, host and motivational speaker, who shares relatable content that’s transparent and challenges audiences to think deeper about social issues and injustices — from police brutality and unemployment to single parenting and youth education disparities. Today, Scott tours the globe to use spoken word as an artistic vehicle of hope and to revitalize an often forgotten art form.
