Free Music Friday: Emily Elbert

Peace, love and positivity — those are the messages Emily Elbert tries to convey through her music. And at just 22 years old, this Berklee College of Music senior has already had plenty of opportunity to spread her good words, in concerts throughout the US and across the globe.

Eco-conscious could be another message from this Texas native, whose environmentally-friendly actions include carpooling, using recycled and recyclable goods and eating local-grown foods whenever she can.

Emily is talented, adorable and passionate about the environment … and she’s our artist of the month for January. Watch her video, and then visit our music page to download her song “To Stay Alive in the World” (it’s free!).

Free Music Friday: Black Kettle

Keeley Bumford and Kailynn West are the Indie rock band duo “Black Kettle,” and Timberland’s artists of the month for December.  The East Coast girls grew up conscious of environmental responsibility (Keeley’s family lived completely off the grid, with their home powered by hydro electricity!) and took those environmental values with them cross-country to Los Angeles, where they continue to be mindful of their use of energy and resources — and encourage others to do the same.

You can download Black Kettle’s song “Spineless” (for free!) on Timberland’s music page now. While you’re there, be sure to check out the rest of our featured artists and their music, too.

Free Music Friday: Abbie Barrett

She uses chemical-free cleaning products, can’t juggle and sounds a little like Chrissie Hynde (is it just me?) … she’s Abbie Barrett, our featured artist of the month for November.

We asked Abbie what she does to reduce her environmental impact.  Among the list of actions she takes (including recycling and using CFL lightbulbs and reusable water bottles), she said: “Mostly, I try to do better.” And whether your environmental action is really big or kind of small, isn’t that the whole point?

She may not know how to juggle, but she can sing.  Check out Abbie’s song “Here to Stay” and download it for free on our Community Music page.

Free Music Friday: Alicia Lemke

October’s featured artist Alicia Lemke says, “my wilderness spirit and my musical spirit are very linked,” and we think that’s pretty cool.  The Wisconsin native does her best to live a sustainable lifestyle by buying locally-grown foods, recycling and using her own water bottle while she’s traveling — which is often.  Meet the outdoor-loving musician for yourself:

That’s Alicia’s song “Smoking Gun” playing in her video above, and you can download it (for free!) on our Music Page.  While you’re there, be sure to check out some of our previously-featured environmental artists and their work.

Free Music Friday: The Chad Hollister Band

Our pick for artist of the month for September is the Chad Hollister Band – a group of talented musicians with Vermont roots, an infectious sound, and a passion for the environment.  Here’s Chad Hollister himself, talking about what he does to reduce his own environmental footprint … and showing us just how deep his affection for the great outdoors really runs:

The band’s song “Grow” is gaining quick popularity on the airwaves, and you can download it now, for free, on our music page.  While you’re there, check out the other Friday freebies from our previous artists of the month.
