RonAmber Deloney, known to many as Floweasy, native of Dallas, Texas is all about social dialogue. As a performance poet her work is conversations on street corners and words exchanged in the breezeway – a mix of images rewritten in various places on random things. She has worked with The Last Poets in Europe and along with black German rapper Khabo and Takeshi Beats released a spoken word/hip hop album entitled Of Brickwalls and Breezeways, which is currently available on Itunes. The second cd, Lilac and Rapeseed, is in the final stages of production.
