About the author:
Stormborn is a lyricist, artist, poet, and producer with his digital independent, self produced, solo, self named debut Album "Stormborn". He is self taught. He produces all his own beats, writes the lyrics, engineers the tracks, performs, and handles all promotions.
He was born in a 70 year storm in Los Angeles, California in 1980 in a small hippie/artist community off the coast; in a tiny little house his parents rented that he never got to remember living in. He grew up traveling around the U.S. performing music on the streets with his family, from Los Angeles to Detroit to New Orleans and many places in between, but mostly based out of New Orleans where according to his parents he was conceived!
At age six with his parents, New Orleans music legends David and Roselyn and his lovely sister Autumn, Stormy wandered the streets of Europe for nine months performing anyplace there were crowds. The Leonard Family once more made the hop over the pond when Stormborn was thirteen this time with a little more structure.
He spent nine moths living on a side of a mountain from late spring to the middle of winter in Flagstaff Arizona where he spent much time learning, meditating, and meeting some very amazing people. He worked many different jobs from bartender, working security, to digging ditches, selling a little herb in his misspent youth, working as a customer service manager, and in many other professions. As a student of life he considers himself a renaissance man. Unknowingly his parents raised him in an traditional Greek fashion with many philosophical discussion and gymnastics, music, art, mathematics, various cultural experiences, and martial arts training.
Living in some of the worst neighborhood in three of the most dangerous cities from Los Angeles, where he would stay with one of his sisters to Detroit, where the Leonard family stayed with his adopted aunt near six mile while they were in town, to New Orleans where they parked their RV in a vacant lot in the Treme for the most part till the Leonards bought Stormy's (as his family calls him) first ever traditional home at age nine in the ninth ward neighborhood of the Bywater, made him strong.
Constantly encouraged to read, write, create art, dance and play music growing up Stormborn is a poet, artist, musician, and a registered ordained minister with the Universal Life Church. David Stormborn is a lover of music a swinger of the grove a dabbler of rhythm anything that gets your feet to move!
Progression of a Mind The Graphic Novel
David Stormborn Leonard
This book is my life's work. "Progression of a Mind The Graphic Novel" includes poems and songs from over ten years telling the story of my life as a world traveling street musician, artist, poet, lover, and includes my observations and experiences in delving into the world of criminals. I use various characters as a means to detach from some of the things I have seen and done to help portray the counter culture of criminality, and help with the healing process of dealing with these sociopaths and psychopaths. "Progression of a Mind The graphic Novel" Part One includes over 40 poems about my social and spiritual observations, religious beliefs, and my political musings following the devastation to our country, and world, after the 9/11 attacks. This work also includes over 40 of my postmodern realism stream of consciousness psychedelic artwork. "Progression of a Mind The Graphic Novel" Part One Chronicles humanity's connection with the Universal Consciousness and the devastating corruption to it that our global society, with increases in technology, has had on it.
