2008 Naca South & Northeast Showcase.

Dana Gilmores brand of poetry is both invigorating and cathartic. She has appeared on seasons 3 and 4 of HBOs Def Poetry Jam where she received several standing ovations. She also has shared the stage with artists such as Mos Def, Kanye West, Anthony Hamilton and the legendary Smokey Robinson. Danas feature performance at Kansas Citys well-renowned Blue Room was a sold-out show. Gilmores poetic style is very clear-cut and real. For her, all of life can be interpreted through her poetry. She presents them in a form that is rare, yet real. Dana speaks passionately, yet practically, about lifes adversities, as well as alternatives for dealing with those realities. Some call writing a gift, for Dana, Its a calling. Today, Dana spends her time traveling across the nation performing while also working on songs, stage plays, and screenplays.
