About

Maybe you know John Lee Hooker, Jr. already....

Chances are you recognize his name – his father was one of the greatest Delta blues musicians of his era, forever changing the landscape of American music.

But you probably don't know what The Reverend John Lee Hooker, Jr., has been up to lately. 

After years of success, following in his dad's footsteps with his own exemplary sound (garnering two Grammy nominations on two different albums), John Lee Hooker, Jr. is taking a step in a new direction in his personal and musical evolution by crossing over to a new genre in the Hooker pedigree: Gospel. And not just any gospel, this is John Lee Hooker, Jr's Gospel – it's Modern Gospel with a Groove. 

At the Grammy Awards in 2008 for "Blues With A Vengeance"

You'll hear the same story right from his mouth: "I was on the street, with a needle hanging out of my arm." He went to prison. And he went to prison again. And again. When he came out, he fell on hard times, but he picked himself up – redemption is the measure of a soul, after all. And John Lee found his second chance, inspired by the True Light, and changed his life around. Music is how John Lee communicates best; and he's got some toe-tapping new gospel tunes, with all the familiar notes his fans have come to know and love over the years.

 "Life is great without drugs & alcohol," he says. "It is really beautiful, and by the grace of God I have been able to see and live that, and I'm so happy for it."

Today, John Lee is an ordained minister, studying for his B.A. in Pastoral Leadership. He's devoted his life to the big questions and a brand new direction. The quintessential performer, (he was on stage with his pops by age 8), he takes pride in the way his story has evolved – from the streets to prison to the Red Carpet to the pulpit – John Lee brings his story today to others who have fallen upon hard times. He regularly visits prisons to work with challenged populations, all the way from juvenile delinquents to death row. It's a testament of loyalty to his transformation. He's a big advocate of second chances, if you want them, and he's singing some pretty special songs to help you see they do in fact exist.

John Lee wants you to know his core music hasn't changed. 

He is still with the same band, the same producer, same management, and has picked up a choir now too, and they all plan to begin touring again once his new album is released. He's also got a creative agency (Hi! We're In The Flicker), who fell in love with his inspirational story and agreed to help tell it to the world, and a literary agency representing his memoir, now being read by several major book publishers.

John Lee's album, MY GOD is HOLY, serves as a bridge between his music and his life's message; a defining moment in his evolution both personally and musically. Truly the first of its kind for anyone of the Hooker namesake, combining a beautiful message with his funky, modern Gospel music. 

So what do you need all this money for? 

So glad you asked! Making an album can be expensive, especially if you're working with some amazing talent. John Lee and his team are a group of individuals dedicated to the craft of music, and doing it with devotion and passion. They sing and play because they love it and just want to be in the studio together.  This project is a way for them to share their creative work with the world. 

Your donation can help John Lee Hooker, Jr. and his team share his story of redemption and sing the Gospel with his rejuvenated mission at the backbone. Here's how the costs break down:  

  • 60% of the funds will go toward recording with the same band and producer he's worked with for years
  • 12% of the funds will go toward mastering and packaging the album for market. 
  • 20% of the funds will go toward marketing the new album –  EPK, website, press inquiries, and other marketing elements.
  • 5% of the funds will go toward Kickstarter & Amazon payment fees, as a deal between us and these two glorious sites helping us to make this project happen.

He and John Lee have been working together for many years.  

Campaign Manager Erin Galey and her company, In The Flicker, have seen 3 Kickstarter campaigns to successful completion, totaling $87K in contributions, including "Brave Girl - The Movie," "Points of Origin (formerly known as "The First Thing," and a Kickstarter Staff Pick), and a Studio Album co-Produced by Bobby Bridger & John Inmon. This is Erin's second time producing & marketing a studio album, and one of countless creative ventures she's helped bring to life. She and her team of award-winning filmmakers attended NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Asia, in Singapore. 

Q&A 

Where does my contribution go? 

Your contribution will buy studio time, pay musicians and his producer for their time and talents, mix and master the new record, package the CD, and potentially even buy John Lee and his band a sandwich! (Hey, musicians have to eat, too). It will also go towards packaging the CD and cover some marketing costs. 

Can he exceed the funding goal? 

YES, he sure can. In fact, if we surpass the funding goal, we have a couple of stretch goals already lined up, like, supporting John's prison visits with his band (which he currently does out of his own pocket), sending the band on tour, and even a fan "Thank You Concert" in the San Francisco Bay area, where he's from. Stay tuned, we'll definitely keep you posted. :) 

What's up with the message - is he here to sing and inspire you? Or something else?

YES, absolutely, great question – John Lee is definitely here to sing. And boy does he ever! Music means a lot to him, and his message is in his music; it's how he communicates best. This album is the next incarnation of a truly talented artist expressing himself, with a very talented team. Whether you're here to hear the sweet new tunes, or take a meaningful message with you, it's entirely in your hands.

Risks and challenges

Hey all, Erin Galey & Executive Producer Ron Kramer here. As with any creative endeavor, encountering obstacles is a natural (and sometimes fun!) part of the creative process.

Ron and John Lee together have a great many years of experience in the recording industry, and have produced and recorded projects with major record labels. They have hard-won experience dealing with just about any situation that can arise during the phases of making a record.

We're all here to bring MY GOD is HOLY to life, and can't wait to share the new groove of Reverend John Lee Hooker, Jr. with the world. Amen!

    BE A BACKGROUND VOCALIST ON JOHN LEE'S NEW ALBUM.

    Been waiting for your big industry break and your place in history? Well, this is it. For this extremely generous reward, we'll invite you and a friend to the recording studio in Alameda, CA (near Oakland - travel & lodging not included), and roll out the Red Carpet for you to be a part of the background vocalists, coached by producer Larry Batiste (he's amazing, trust us), and your voice will be a part of history. You'll get to hear playback, work with an extremely experienced band, get a professional photo of your time in the studio (yep with headphones on, singing into that funny microphone thing), and we can take a #selfie, or video on your mobile device for you to share with the world!

    This reward includes all the other perks - we'll go big for ya - behind-the-scenes updates, photo download, digital album download, name in the liner notes, Skype session (while you're in the studio!!), Bible, CD, Vinyl, hat, voicemail, Hooker family photo album, WHITE PLATINUM GOLD VIP experience, and a personally autographed 8x10' photo of John Lee Hooker, Jr.
