Earth Doctor / Climate Troubadour

Wake Your Neighbor!

Wake Your Neighbor! (2018)

This 3rd album is the only one focused not on climate, but a handful of other worthy issues of our time:  How do we understand “national security” when the peace, freedom and prosperity of our people may have become secondary to the financial of global corporations headquartered here? While we are gabbing about “freedom,” we are sliding away from democracy to oligopoly; The great majority of Americans want some reasonable gun safety laws, but are up against the gun industry; Current electronic data platforms, drones and other technology are making old notions of privacy seem quaint; The war machine is alive and well, but our schools, roads and bridges are in disrepair; The Supreme Court’s 2010 “Citizens United” decision has flooded American politics with a fire hose of money, under the myth that “money is speech.” They need our help! And a couple of tunes for the Trump era, including the reminder that “If you want to be great, you’ve got to be good!”
