Good things are happening with “Rap Guide to Climate Chaos”. After successes in Edinburgh and at the Paris conference, the show will soon be starting an off-Broadway run, opening exactly one month from today at the Soho Playhouse. In the meantime, I’m hard at work recording a full studio album version of “Climate Chaos”, featuring 24 original tracks of barnstorming, alarm-raising, peer-reviewed hip-hop music.
My goal is to tell the story of global warming, including how we got here and how we can solve it, and to do that I need to hire some help, specifically music producers, engineers, and session musicians to really make these songs come to life. So I’m turning to IndieGogo to raise the funds, which means I’m also turning to you, to help me raise $10,000 in 40 days for album expenses.
Since the momentum of a campaign is driven by funders, every dollar helps. If you would buy this album, please pre-purchase it through the campaign, and if you want to see the show off-Broadway (or if you want to give your friend tickets), you can do that through the campaign as well. There are also some awesome higher-tier perks like original raps, live performances, and consultations with yours truly on whatever subject you hold dear.
And even if you can’t put money on it, please share the campaign with your network via social media or email. I’m of the belief that the climate crisis has to come fully to the centre of popular culture before the political will to solve it will go mainstream. If that’s so, I hope my rap album will help. And I hope you will help me make it happen.
Thanks as always for your support!
