"Fragments Of A Broken Man' (book) suits the name of it’s creator. It is truly an anomaly to find a project that is so authentic, so raw, so poetic. From pieces like “Wings” (my personal favorite. As an independent artist pursuing my dreams, this piece spoke volumes to me) to pieces like “Bridge to Burn” there is something for everyone. With each fragment, Johnny Anomaly bares his soul to create this ultimate complete body of work. “I’m not alright but I’ve lied and told others I’m fine with a fake smile but the truth is, I’m dying inside. Why does it seem that You are so silent during the hardest times in my life?” (excerpt from Whispers & Screams). An example of the authenticity and transparency of this project. “Fragments of a Broken Man” will meet you where ever you are in life and guide you to a place of love, grace, and redemption. “When it rains, it may pour but I know the One who calms the storm.” Read this collection. Then read it again!'
"Johnny Anomaly’s new video for his latest spoken word piece 'Wings' is incredibly moving, motivating and downright awesome."

As Boy Once Blind:
"Becoming Boy Once Blind: A Guest Post"
"Boy Once Blind brands himself as a subtle voice in the midst of chaos. This is far too modest. He is a powerful voice and talent, a troubadour intent on shattering stereotypes and labels...Inspired By Tragedy is a heavy, necessary piece of artistic expression. It’s the opening act for what we hope to be a long, successful career." Jason Ramsey - Altarwork
[in regards to the poems] "It's a lot more gritty and real...It's straightforward, upfront and honest.”
