Lester Chambers, a lifelong musician whose trip through the shitty end of the music industry’s gears spurred other artists to come to his side after posting his “I Am the 99%” story earlier this year (remember when people were doing that?), has another powerful friend to add to his rolodex: Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian. Dangerous Minds will explain everything:
Like nearly everyone else I was moved by Lester’s plight and posted his picture on Dangerous Minds. Co-founder of Reddit, Alexis Ohanian was also moved by Lester’s photo, but he was inspired to do something even more positive about it – to help Lester record a new album.
Alexis contacted Dangerous Minds and explained how he ‘wanted to reach out to tell you about a new project we’ve been working on together.’ I wrote back, asking for more information, and Alexis kindly obliged.
