TODMORDEN, England, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- John Michael Bailey, a British musical performer also known as covert23, is on the mend but he still needs help. Lots of it.
Bailey's physical and mental health has suffered for more than three decades. He's been dealing with chemical poisoning as well as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and severe depression. The chemical poisoning has caused him to lose his teeth.
About 15 years ago, a group of people did not appreciate Bailey's ideas and music, and they allegedly poisoned him with chemical toxins. He is now claiming to be chemical free.
Although Bailey's health has markedly improved in recent months, there's still a long way to go and the people who love him most are banding together to organize a road to recovery. This would include extensive dental work and a much-needed holiday vacation, preferably somewhere warm in the Caribbean.
The estimate for this R&R project is 39,500 British pounds or about $58,898. In order to raise this money, Bailey is selling mp3 downloads from 30 of his albums. He's getting the word out to fans through a Kickstarter campaign, which can be viewed at www.kickstarter.com/projects/covert23/move-any-mountain-by-covert23.
Albums are available for as little as 1 British pound ($1.50 US). For 1 pound, you can select any 12 tracks by covert23. For 2 pounds, you can purchase 24 tracks and so on. There's no limit to the number of tracks that can be ordered.
A pledge of 10 pounds ($15) is good for a mix CD signed by covert23. For 100 pounds ($150), you can get a limited edition Deep Cover Studios black hoodie. This is an extremely rare item, with only five in existence.
Bailey's supporters are hoping that fans from all over the world will help fund his continued recovery. "I appreciate any amount that people are able to donate," he says. "It can be 1 pound or 1,000 pounds. It means a great deal to me that people care and are willing to contribute.
"And they'll be getting some great music, so it's a win-win all around. We're offering rare, unreleased, high-quality tracks."
