Allow me to be completely transparent: I love music and conservation. But it’s not too often that “music” and “green” appear in such direct conversation, unless, of course, you’re talking about musicians who care about the idea of going green (like classic humanitarian band U2′s 2009 tour… whoops, wrong Green Movement).
My point? Sure, the “tree-hugging” hippie singers (i.e. Janis Joplin) placed musicians in the position of advocates for the earth, but where’s the direct connection between music and sustainability? Well, guitarist Adam Gardner of Guster completely schooled me when he spoke up for one of the most musical resources on the planet: trees.
