Dion Decibels is the son of a drummer and a dancer, so it is only natural for him to make and play music for people to enjoy and move to. With 9+ years of DJing and 25 years of musical experience, music is his life‟s dedication and he is here to bring you the funk. I am a published writer who wants our stories to reach everyone. To this end, I wrote "Remember El Alma," a prose-poem that reclaimed the Alamo as a monument to peace, adapted by Virginia Grise (Yale Drama prize 2010), and produced by Bihl Haus Arts in San Antonio, Texas. More than 3000 people saw this first on-site public performance at the Hemisfair in downtown San Antonio during Luminarias SA! on a Saturday night in March of 2010. For our efforts, we received the Contemporary Arts Month "Drama" prize for 2009-2010.

Rhyne performed multiple roles including Board Chair for Alternate ROOTS, a regional organization of cultural workers in the South committed to social and economic justice and protection of the natural environment. A cultural worker, performing artist, and arts educator, Rhyne's passion is weaving tales of wrongs wrought right through theater, dance, spontaneous song and digital media, guiding others in their own journeys of collective liberation through art and culture.

Journeyman Ink transcends cultures, creeds and races by awakening the creative soul and developing emotional literacy through the power of shared life experiences on stage and in the classroom. We pursue speaking and performance opportunities unique for their use of original spoken word and melody memory methods (stimulating oral/aural responses through the recitation of songs and mantras). We offer diversity education, character development, and professional consultation that touches on human emotions and empowers each participant to discover his/her own voice. We tailor commission work, multi-disciplinary workshops and presentations for any need while inspiring others to talk to the page, write to be heard, and courageously find inner strength and common ground.
