Lightning Rod
is a poet, musician, songwriter, lyricist
and all around around Bad Boy.

A renegade born in Yoga Vision, Texas, east of downtown Dallas, with a poetry bone clenched in his gums, Lightning Rod struggled though childhood like the rest of us, endured studies in music and literature but recovered to play the flute. He writes music with subversive intent.
