Da’rrell Cloudy and Jay Bean @ Deep Ellum Market
When: Saturday March 19th, 2011
Where: Stage, Indiana at Malcolm X

WordSpace and Deep Ellum Market present songwriter/poets Da’rrell Cloudy and Jay Bean in an inspiring interface of old Deep Ellum and what makes things new.

Da’rrell Cloudy began writing as a child prodigy of his father, poet Joey Cloudy. By 13, he had published a chapbook of poems, entitled “A Bullet To The Brain” and was presented as a Writer in the Schools in Dallas area schools. He has been a regular feature of open mic and poetry salon scenes since he was 11.

Jay Bean and Da’rrell began their music collaboration in Longview High School, later forming the electronia band Atrium and recorded a demo. Atrium was temporarily disbanded in circumstantial vagaries and Da’rrell and Jay have been performing as a duo all over the Dallas.
Gifted voices, contemplative perspectives, and beatific personas–Look for Da’rrell and Jay onstage behind Cafe Brazil at Deep Ellum Open Market, the historic neighborhood festival and brainchild of Brandon Castillo.

Before there was acting there was a passion burning in this woman that in the year 2005 could no longer be smoldered. She appeared at a poetry reading in the heart of Dallas, Texas at the request of a family friend and the rest is history. Prudence the Auset hosted Poetry N Jazz for 2 years at TePheJez Jazz Club located in the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas.
