Jack Johnson Named Top 'Green 10' Artist by Billboard
May 20, 2008
Responding to the increasing focus that many musicians put on environmental issues, Billboard has assembled a 'Green 10' of artists taking action. The list includes Australian singer/songwriter Missy Higgins at #9, UK singer/songwriter KT Tunstall at #5, top-40 jamband Dave Matthews Band at #4, and renegade Willie Nelson at #2. The artist atop the list is Hawaiian surfer/singer/songwriter Jack Johnson. His new LA studio was built using denim for insulation and solar panels for power. His tour buses run on bio-diesel fuel, tour catering uses organic and locally grown food and venues along the way are being asked to recycle. On a side note, we hope to have a Folk Alley booth at the June 17 concert at Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls. I'll bring a recycling bin, just in case.
