“As a child, I looked up to musicians who used their platform to make a positive difference in the world. It’s a privilege to now be in the position of making music about what I think are the most important issues facing humanity today.” ~ Mister G
We love Mister G! Every summer, the Latin GRAMMY Award winner and four-time Parents’ Choice Gold Award recipient joins us for the Play-In for Climate Action on Capitol Hill. Mister G’s music inspires and delights our participants, as his songs reflect the freedom of childhood, encouraging children to see themselves as budding eco-activists connected to nature.
Mister G (Ben Gundersheimer) grew up in Philadelphia, and each summer he was mesmerized by the appearance of fireflies.
“Now I live in the middle of the forest in rural Massachusetts, where I’m lucky to experience wild animals and all the elements every day, but there’s still nothing that makes me feel the way I do when I see a field full of fireflies.”
So Mister G wrote the title track to his latest album, Fireflies, while sitting on his back porch accompanied by a chorus of peepers, owls, and coyotes.
As climate change threatens so many creatures, including tiny fireflies, we are delighted to partner with Mister G on the release of Fireflies and premier his latest video. And we’re so excited that one dollar from every album sold will be donated to Moms Clean Air Force!
Please watch Mister G’s video that features enchanting footage of real fireflies captured by photographer and firefly enthusiast, Radim Schriber, creator of fireflyexperience.org.
For those in the New England area, join Mister G for his CD Release Party and Halloween Fiesta at the Academy of Music in Northampton, MA on Sunday, October 28th. More information and tickets can be found at: http://fiesta.mistergsongs.com
