This time, we're excited to feature one of Ottawa's best, Nathanaël Larochette aka Sir Realist!
Nathanaël Larochette aka Sir Realist is an Ottawa-area spoken word poet and musician. Since his first introduction to spoken word poetry in January 2006, Nathanaël has gone from being an unknown face in the scene to the longest running director of Capital Slam (Ottawa’s bi-weekly poetry slam series and Canada’s second longest running slam), a six-time Capital Slam monthly champion, a four-time finalist, an Ottawa Slam Team member and competitor at the 2007, 2008 (finalist), 2012 (semi-finalist) and 2013 Canadian Festival of Spoken Word, the 2008 CBC Poetry Face-Off champion for Ottawa, the youngest ever Festival Director for the Canadian Festival for Spoken Word (2010) and a 5th place finalist at the 2014 Canadian Individual Poetry Slam Championships. Nathanaël has spent seven years facilitating poetry workshops in Ottawa-area schools and has received government funding from both the City of Ottawa and the Ontario Arts Council. Nathanaël is also a founding member and guitarist in both the Progressive Chamber Folk Ensemble Musk Ox and the Progressive/Instrumental/Metal band The Night Watch. Nathanaël lives to create, hope, and dream because he believes these are the keys to the meaning of our being.
