"Reverberate with Authenticity" TM
If you had asked any one of us - here at Echo Eight Group - where we would be in five years... Not a single one of us would have ever - in a million years - come up with this answer. Fates decided that all the work we had put into the company would be razed to the ground. We lost a few of our founding members and friends. We had to clear away the rubble and reset the studs of the company back on terra firma. But with American ingenuity and true grit we have rebuilt the company into something far stronger that the previous iterations. And we are proud of that. So we went back to our core principle, our very motto. We will stand true with our own authentic sound.
Hearkening back to the early days of guerrilla style journalism, The Mobster Poet is - a myriad blend of the duality that is the gentle poetic verse and brusque gangster soul - intended to be ‘out of bounds’ and ‘outside the norms’ with a sincere hope that people will see these stories, these interviews, these art projects, and these poems and essays that are showcased here and be inspired to become a better version of themselves, as this art has allowed the author to become a better animal. Maybe a bit self serving and maybe a bit altruistic, but when the leash is taken off, and the artist is free to tell the story the way they feel, what develops is something truly unique.
Born in the upstairs bedroom / office of a rented duplex is a suspect part of town, Mobster Poet is that unique amuse-bouche of artistic flair that belies the humble origins of an ancient laptop and even older desk found on the side of the road, ready to be cast off but eagerly repurposed.
Here at The Mobster Poet author Patrik Hill shrugs off the bouds of a traditional sense of journalism and delves into the subjects and the actors he finds truly interesting; stories that are truly outside the norm and off the menu.
