Rock Guitarist Turned Faith Based Musician Caleb Quaye -- Whom Eric Clapton Once Called 'The Best Guitar Player in the World' -- Is Subject of Crowdfunding Campaign to Raise Funds to Complete His Documentary 'A Voice Louder Than Rock'

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 19, 2015) - GloRoc Productions is launching a dynamic crowd-funding campaign to raise funds for the completion of "A Voice Louder Than Rock," a documentary based on "A Voice Louder Than Rock & Roll," the popular 2006 autobiography by Caleb Quaye (www.newworldmusic.org), the spiritually and geographically well-traveled musician that none other than the legendary Eric Clapton once called "The Best Guitar Player in the World."

Quaye wrote the book that the film is based on with Dale A. Berryhill.

While the production team has finished 49 percent of the project on essentially no budget, GloRoc is seeking a total of $100,000 between campaigns on FaithLauncher.com and Gofundme.com. The extra funds will go towards finishing primary photography, editing, post-production and travel expenses related to overseas travel for more artist interviews that will help flesh out Quaye's extraordinary story. The sites are administered by his nephew Darius Carlo, who masterminded the campaign, and multiple Emmy award-winning producer Valerie J. Tucker, his manager and head of GloRoc Productions, who is producing the film.

A powerful "Rags to Riches to Rags to Redemption" story with built in appeal to rock fans and faith based audiences alike, "A Voice Louder Than Rock" chronicles Quaye's journey from being a legendary rock sideman throughout the '70s with greats like Elton John and Hall & Oates to launching a very different, even more vibrant life in ministry, overseeing the worship ministries at the prominent Foursquare Church called The Church on the Way in Van Nuys, Calif. (where he was first baptized) and traveling and speaking throughout the country.

The doc includes vintage clips of his father, British-born singer, multi-instrumentalist and bandleader Cab Kaye, who worked with jazz legends like Charlie Parker, Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie. It also features interviews with famed Genesis drummer Chester Thompson, Lynyrd Skynyrd guitarist Ed King (co-writer of "Sweet Home Alabama"), Memphis blues guitarist Buddy Davis, longtime EJ guitarist and musical director Davey Johnstone, engineer Stuart Epps, string arranger Paul Buckmaster and Dr. Jack Hayford, Founding Pastor of The Church on the Way.
