Corey Glover need your help to make his next solo record

This is from a recent email sent from Corey Glover :
...I'm writing again to ask you to help fund next solo music project via Pledgemusic:

In September and October, I had a tour w/ the talented Danielia Cotton. It was a small east coast tour, roughly 10 shows, with 2 more after Thanksgiving in Fairfield, CT and NYC's Highline Ballroom. I talked w/ a lot of folks pre and post shows for feedback, what they like, and what they're looking for in my next album. It's been 13 yrs since my last solo record. I've had 2 albums w/ Living Colour since then (minus the Paris Concert CD/DVD) and have played and toured w/ Soulive and Galactic. It's definitely time to make that follow-up to Hymns.

I'm asking for your help funding this album. With your help, you can tell me what you want to hear. Through Pledgemusic, I'll have updates of the progress and will answer your feedback. the minimum pledge is $10, which will get you the full album via digital download, plus access to pledge-only downloads and videos.

You can also pledge on signed cd's, a collection of mp3's from my personal archive of music and shows, to handwritten lyric sheet of any song you'd like all the way to a private in-house show for you and 30 friends (US and around the world).

Thank you if you've already pledged. You can still help by spreading the word of this project on your social networks: or tell your friends.

This project also gives to a charity of my choice. I've worked w/ the students at NY2NO ( ) a youth-led consensus-based organization made to create a network of young people who are interested in organizing and mobilizing across NYC. They work in solidarity w/ those affected by social, racial and economic inequalities in New York and New Orleans.

I'm sitting here backstage at Stubbs BBQ in Austin, Texas performing w/ Galactic tonight, so I best get going. Again, I appreciate everyone's help on this.

Thanks for you help!
