Murray Lachlan Young
Murray Lachlan Young is a British poet, stand-up performer, broadcaster, playwright, screenwriter and children’s author. He came to prominence during the Brit Pop era of the mid-1990s, when he became the only poet to sign a contract worth £1m.
His work echoes the great rhymers Edward Lear, Lewis Carroll and Gilbert and Sullivan, along with more alternative influencers such as Grandmaster Flash, Tom Waits and Ian Dury.
Currently the poet in residence on BBC 6 Music, he tours regularly (of course when Covid allows) and his collection ‘How Freakin’ Zeitgeist are you?’ is published by Unbound Books.
