Carl Gladstone started the campaign

"She was matchstick / sent here to burn, to blaze, to heat things up / to keep us warm" – Jeff Nelson

My mom Terry Gladstone touched the lives of many. This is the collection of songs I wish I'd had time to write and sing for her before she died on November 6, 2011. It's also a collection inspired by her, her work, her love of those around her, and her passion for the church. In the priceless words of my friend and poet Jeff Nelson, these are also the songs that ask us "is there anybody left who might burn this whole place down" like she would?

Each $10 donation to this campaign is a pre-sale and you'll receive the CD upon it's completion. $500 donors get 50 CDs and a free solo acoustic show of these songs for 50 friends, maybe 50 folks who loved Terry like I do, maybe 50 friends who'd be inspired by her life like I am.

All proceeds beyond the cost of production will be donated to ministries in the Detroit Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church that Terry loved and worked on in her decades long career as a Deacon and leader among us.

Let's burn this place down for my Mom. Thanks.
