As they embark on their early 2024 Oxford Tour, we invite you to join us at the iconic Old Fire Station, where their magic is set to unfold.
At the heart of You Talk Too Much lies a profound connection, a shared passion for artistic expression, and a dedication to meaningful themes. This project is the brainchild of two friends who have beautifully amalgamated soundscapes with spoken word poetry. The result? A sonic journey that will touch your soul and ignite your imagination.
Spoken Word Meets Music
If you’re a lover of spoken word and music, this is the event you’ve been waiting for. “You Talk Too Much” crafts a unique experience that takes you on a voyage through the intricate emotions and stories woven into their performances. With a brilliant fusion of rhythm and language, they evoke deep emotions and inspire thought-provoking reflections.

His performances are not just recitations but heart-touching, soul-stirring journeys into the depths of human emotions.
Markus Reyhani: The Musician
Markus Reyhani is the musical genius of this duo. With his mastery of various instruments and soundscapes, he provides the perfect musical backdrop to Daniel’s profound words. Markus weaves together melodies and harmonies that breathe life into the poetry, making each performance a symphony of emotions and sensations.
