Four decades of writing provide abundant testimony. Brenardo's journey as a songwriter led him to a caf in 1996 where he encountered 'Spoken Word', and the poet in him began to flourish. Since then he has performed in venues alongside Tonya Marie Matthews, (Ja Hipsta) Reggie (Love Jones) Gibson, Gayle Danley, Saul Williams, and a host of other renown poets, such as Sonya Sanchez & Amiri Baraka.
