Hendryx is running a campaign with PledgeMusic to support the tour where participants can purchase the album and get access to exclusive tour updates, videos from rehearsals through the tour, a chance for musical rarities as well as interactive experiences. Nona has also put together a contest for her fans via the PledgeMusic page and she plans to give away an iPad, meet & greet and more! The quiz contest is up and running and all you have to do is pledge to enter. Clues have already been released and Nona will continue to post clues every Tuesday at 12pm EST until July 31. Clues will be made available on Nona's pledge page, but additional clues will be tweeted (@funkrockster) and will be posted on Nona's facebook artist page.
One first place winner will receive a brand new iPad, 2nd place will get a meet & greet with Nona PLUS they will get to join her on stage for a song and 3rd place wins a meet & greet, photo and hand written lyrics. A portion of the money from the Pledge campaign will also help an amazing organization called Little Black Pearl, a school in Chicago for alternative learning for youths ages 12 to 17.

Mutatis Mutandis is an album that has both politically and socially relevant lyrics wrapped in funky grooves, soulful vocals and rock charged rhythms. Quite simply put, Nona Hendryx is the quintessential "mother" of contemporary artists such as Erykah Badu, Emeli Sandé, Janelle Monáe, M.I.A., V.V. Brown, and others who can only hope to see careers that allow them to span the decades, and she still rocks on!
