Red Storm

HBO Def Poet/Motivational Speaker/Author Redstorm is to poetry what John the Baptist was to Jesus, a purifier. He is a lyrical current that can electrify an audience of any magnitude. His street philosophy has the potential to redeem, recover and resurrect a movement. Redstorm was named Darren Redmond at birth and was raised by good-god-fearing grandparents with morals. Born and raised on the Eastside of Chicago, 79th Street, where he still resides and attended Horace Mann Elementary and South Shore High School. Many wonder how did such a gifted writer that comes from a solid foundation end up in prison. Well, Redstorm simply chose to run the gritty Chicago streets and became involved with gangs and drugs at an early age leading to thirteen years imprisonment. In November 2000, Grandma died, while he was incarcerated. Released from prison in July 2002 without any support system he began his journey to expose the street life for what he refers to as a bunch of lost souls... by writing poetry and inspirational prose that was inspired during the bad times. This collection has lead to Ebony Energy Publishing, Inc. An imprint of The GEM Group releasing Redstorm’s first book called "Finders of Lost Souls" that will be available September 2004 and can be found at Border Books Nationwide via ISBN: 0-9755092-2-5. Redstorm has been writing poetry since his first bout with being isolated from society in 1989 and has been on the open mic scene performing his work since 2002. He is a social theorist skilled at delivering his experiences with passion and zeal potential to redeem, recover and resurrect a movement
