About the Author
Aerle Taree, two-time Grammy award winning co-writer of the hit songs “Tennessee” and “Revolution” with the music group Arrested Development, has expanded her writing talent in the newly published book PoeTaree: The Jurisprudence of Life.
Taree is noted as being a prolific writer. Her other titles are Humanities Matter: The Essay Collection, Molly's Mental Health: Love Me Too, Autobiography of Aerle Taree: Originally of Arrested Development, Coco: The Girl, and, Bettie The Bee: Its A Sin.
It was as a member of that Atlanta-based group that Taree’s writing blossomed, co-writing the hit songs "Tennessee" and "Revolution," (at the request of Spike Lee for Malcolm X: The Movie). During this time, Taree continued her studies at Clark Atlanta University; by the age of 19, she had won two Grammy Awards, two NAACP Image Awards and a BMI Songwriter of the Year Award. Taree’s career with Arrested Development gained her nationwide recognition and awards, including MTV Music Awards, Soul Train Awards, and Rolling Stone Critic Poll’s Band of the Year.
Following her departure from Arrested Development, Taree continued to grow artistically. She has also started her own multifaceted entertainment company in Atlanta called Reality Writings, Inc., one of the newest members of the Universal Music Publishing family. Taree has written her own book of narrative poems entitled PoeTaree: The Jurisprudence of Life. Writer Zora Neale Hurston, activist/?poet Sonia Sanchez and poet Gil Scott Heron have largely influenced her work.
She currently lives in Dekalb County, GA.
