rainmaker

"I write political views and society from the gun point of my pen"...Rainmaker is the author of "Between the Clouds and the Silver Linings" praised by Abiodum Oyewole, founding member of the Last Poets...as "An intense, thick, thought provoking work of art".

Rainmaker's "path of rain" is the straight vodka metaphor that goes down smooth but leaves you feeling the burn...his CD "The Rise of Consciousness" is an extraordinary forty-four minutes of storytelling. He is in the process of working on a follow up CD to the well received "Rise" album. He has both appeared and hosted on the Flowmatic Channel; has been interviewed on BCAT TV and has appeared in "Uncertain Terms", an independent film by Eric Mandelbaum.

Rainmaker has featured everywhere from the Apollo Theater to the Panasonic Theater in New Jersey; in places like the Spoken Word Cafe, the Sugar Shack, Denny Moe's Superstar Barbershop, LaGuardia Community College, New York University, Sarah Lawrence College, and even opened up at the Harlem SummerStage recently for Carl Thomas. There are too many venues to list; this man has been busy!

Rainmaker is passionate about the power of the word to heal and has participated in many educational workshops with students from every walk of life, including "Reality Check Chapters" in NYC, Hottest Poets with the Easter and Columbus HS in the Bronx.
