PAY WITH A POEM 2018

Every year, on the 21st of March, we celebrate World Poetry Day in hundreds of locations around the globe, where you can awaken your inner poet to get inspired, write, and Pay With A Poem.

This year, we took this movement one step further, as we wanted to prove that poetry is the soul of music. Poetry has not always felt accessible, but music is an universal language and has the ability to help people engage with poetry in unexpected ways. This is why we joined forces with the critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter JP Cooper, who will create a song to celebrate poets from around the world.

“Working with Julius Meinl has given me the opportunity to celebrate my fellow wordsmiths, poets and lyricists the world over. I hope my song will demonstrate that poetry lives everywhere.”, JP Cooper said.

MEET OUR GLOBAL AMBASSADOR

“She’s on my mind, she’s on my mind, she’s on my mind” was on everybody’s mind in 2017: this is maybe the first hit that comes to mind when you think about JP Cooper. He’s also famous for “September song” and “Perfect Strangers”, his wonderful collaboration with Jonas Blue.

JP Cooper shot to fame in 2016, becoming one of the most appreciated singer-songwriters in the UK, with more than 100.000 followers on Spotify. He is accustomed to having more than 350 million streams to his songs and he’s very familiar with being #1 in UK charts.

“Music has the ability to help people enjoy and engage with poetry in unexpected ways. In recent years, I’ve seen a lot of musicians start to use poetry in their music, and for me it is an important part of the songwriting process. Ultimately, I want my music to resonate with people, and offer an escape from the every day. By being given the opportunity to create a song in celebration of poets across the globe, I hope to bring fans together and show that poetry lives everywhere and can be accessible to everyone.”
