Jennifer Burd has had poetry published in numerous journals, and her first full-length book of poems, Body and Echo, was published by PlainView Press in 2010. Laszlo and Jennifer have given a number of joint readings that feature both their solo work — Laszlo singing Rumi and Hafiz poems, Jennifer reading her poems accompanied by guitar improvisations — as well as poems they’ve written together, some of which Laszlo has set to music.
