Carl Hancock Rux is an award-winning poet, playwright, novelist, essayist and recording artist.  His work crosses the disciplines of poetry, theater, music, and literary fiction in order to achieve what one critic describes as a “dizzying oral artistry…unleashing a torrent of paper bag poetry and post modern Hip-Bop music; the ritualistic blues of self awakening.”

Rux was named by The New York Times Magazine as one of “Thirty Artists Under Thirty” predicted to make an impact on American culture.  His albums include Rux Revue (Sony/550), Apothecary Rx (Giant Step), Good Bread Alley (Thirsty Ear) and Homeostasis.  He is the recipient of several awards including the Herb Alpert Prize, NYFA Prize, NYFA Gregory Millard Fellow, and NEA/TCG Artist-in-Residency Fellow.  He is currently working on his new novel and awaiting the premiere of his opera, Mackandal, in the fall of 2013 (book & lyrics by Rux/ music by Yosvany Terry/art by Edouard Duval Carríe.)
