Kevin W. Burke's first full length collection is finally here!!!

Going Down Singing is more than just a poetry collection. It's a story of healing and growth told through poetry and a playlist. It's a coming of age story with a soundtrack to scream along to.

Don't take our word for it, here's some nice things some fancy people have said about it:

"The poems in Kevin Burke's Going Down Singing echo the spirit of song and packed concert halls and volume, volume, volume.  The language in the poems is soaring and miraculous."

 - Hanif Abdurraqib, author of They Can't Kill Us Until They Kill Us -

"Going Down Singing is a collection that is a praise to both the splinter and the scar. Not only is this a delightful debut, but more importantly, it is one long love letter to anyone who has ever thought about leaving this wild world, to please stay."

 - Lacey Roop, author of And Then Came the Flood -

 "...Kevin Burke dives into the hot swamp of punk and reverie, a death grip, slowly releasing the past through powerful verses of holy fuck, southern lightning, and gratefulness."

 - Derrick Brown, author of Hello. It Doesn't Matter and Uh-Oh -

"Kevin W. Burke's work is a mix between punk rock and grunge-rap drinking a cold beer on the front porch. His poetry and person is genuine. One can appreciate how he allows the reader to take risk and give second chances."

- Ebony Stewart, "The Gully Princess", and author of Home. Girl. Hood. -
