Gaskill Speaks!

Tags:

What’s in the mind of an artist? Actor/director/poet Brian Gaskill (Dylan, GUIDING LIGHT; BJ, AS THE WORLD TURNS; Oscar, THE BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL) wants you to know! The bard has recorded Make It Real, a downloadable collection of 21 of his personal works. “I recorded it a few weeks ago, and I’m very excited about it,” Gaskill offers of his eclectic collection. “Its a very real and raw look into my life and life in general… It’s about me, but when you are being real as an artist, hopefully you are holding up a mirror and [reflecting] the reader too.”

Gaskill has been putting his thoughts — both dark and light — on paper for years. Why make his poems public now? “I very much enjoy reading [my work] aloud in coffeehouses, etc.,” Gaskill explains. “In fact, the first poem in the collection, “M Street,” is named after a place I read at once a month [in Sherman Oaks, CA].”
