GloRoc Productions has reignited a crowd-funding campaign for the completion of the film. Fans are encouraged to lend their support by visiting gofundme.com/voicelouderthanr-r.

The film is a spirited chronicle of a great rock and roller working and touring with legends, but also offers through his story, a message of hope and reconciliation. Quaye believes that in today’s world, where there is an abundance of misinformation and confusion, people should hear a story of hope – and through his faith, there lies hope in Christ.

The pilot for “A Voice Louder Than Rock” earned top honors in the Best Pilot category at the 7th Annual New Media Film Festival (www.newmediafilmfestival.com), where the clip made its world premiere last June in Los Angeles. The official trailer for the film can be viewed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APXuAmDHBqQ.

A Voice Louder Than Rock” is produced and directed by Valerie J. Tucker of GloRoc Productions, former Producer of FOX 11 LA’s multi Emmy-Award winning Black history series “Songs of Our Success.”

Based on his popular 2006 autobiography “A Voice Louder Than Rock & Roll,” co-written by Dale A. Berryhill, the film exposes Quaye’s quintessential music industry experiences of sex, drugs and rock and roll”, before ultimately reaching the Fatherless with a message of hope and reconciliation. The story has inherent appeal to music fans and faith-based audiences alike.

The profound ‘rockumentary’ features interviews with influential music greats including Grammy-Award winner Paul Buckmaster, Davey Johnstone (Elton John guitarist), Chester Thompson (Genesis drummer), Kenny Passarelli (bass player for Elton John) Steve Brown (producer for Elton John), Stuart Epps (produced for Elton John, Led Zeppelin, Robbie Williams, Oasis), Clive Franks (sound engineer), blues guitarist Buddy Davis, Professor Richard Yarborough, and Ed King of Lynyrd Skynyrd who wrote the classic song “Sweet Home Alabama” based off Quaye’s authentic guitar playing.
