Codi Jordan Interview

 

Codi Jordan is raising money for his new album so lets help the guy out. Donate a little bit of money and support our music scene and Codi Jordan Band. Here is the link: http://www.indiegogo.com/Codisnextrecord. I think he needs around $3,000 more to finish the album so anything you can throw in will help. Listen to the interview featuring the song "The Little Red Dress." If you dig it throw a couple bucks in the bucket. Thanks. - Corey

Here is a video of Codi explaining more how this works:
