Body: Melissa Pionzio | Greater Middletown / ShorelineiTowns HostBridgeport man shares life's journey in music and wordsBy Melissa Pionzio on July 10, 2008 2:35 PM | Permalink | Comments (0) I just had an interesting conversaton with a Bridgeport man, who wanted to tell me about the new album and upcoming book he's written - an autobiography about rising above a violent environment. I know Bridgeport is a bit farther south than the Middlesex County and Shoreline towns I usually blog about, but since it's my home town I thought I'd give a fellow Park City resi- a chance to tell his story.
Deshawn Lamont Harper, who told me he grew up in Virginia, spent a few years in Atlanta, Ga. before his family moved to Bridgeport. It was in Connecticut that he said he started writing lyrics he describes as rhythm and poetry (which I just figured out stands for RAP, DUH, my dumb!) He recorded three different albums titled "Bread and Budda", "From Pain to Blessing" and most recently, "It Takes a Hood to Raise a Child." Here are images from two of his album covers...
Deshawn, who is 30 now, seemed pretty pumped up about his work - but a little nervous too and not sure about how to tell me all he wanted to say. I thought he did okay for a cold phone call to someone he didn't even know.
"The first album "From Pain to Blessings," has songs dedicated to President George Bush another album is titled "Bread and Budda," on that one I have songs dedicated to the Senator of Bridgeport - (ex-State Senator) Ernest Newton and (former Bpt.) Mayor John Fabrizzi," Deshawn said about two controversial Bridgeport leaders who made media headlines quite a bit over the past few years. "They went through a lot of ups and downs. Hopefully they will turn around and do the right things.
The third album is about how Deshawn has tried to turn himself around by taking his personal experiences and using them toward creating a more positive life. He said he formed his own publishing company called Dark Legion Publishers/Mystory Entertainment. This third album and the upcoming autobiograpy he's written with the same title, represents his life's journey, he said, a chance to get the things in his head out there - things he's seen and experienced, but could never talk about in the open without feeling like a "snitch.
"I'm walking through a real life book right now, you have to capture the moment and don't let it go," he said of the book, which he hopes to see published within the next few months. "The story is about a young man growing up in a neighborhood, going through everyday experiences...changing his life from violence to an entrepreneur life.
You can listen Deshawn's songs by going to http://cdbaby. com/cd/darklegionmyztery.
All the albums are there. When the book comes out, Deshawn said plans to distribute it to local libraries and book stores.
I'll keep my eye out for this book, could be an interesting read.
