ANOTHER ARTIST ATTEMPT TO SAVE "OUR PLANET"

January 20, 2020

It is always refreshing to see an artist using art and their platform to an end greater than themselves. With “Our Planet,” Chris Webby and Bria Lee seek to do just that. Their take on climate change activism is more than mere environmentalism, too. Webby’s verses often make reference to the economic motivations that often lead to the detriment of the natural world. Similarly, Lee chimes in on the refrains with a nod to Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land.” I like to think that this is no mere coincidence, given Guthrie’s own outspoken leftism. The result is an impassioned and substantive plea to make a difference for the world at large. 

 

Speaking of wealth, Webby and Lee are keen to put their money where their mouths are. All of the revenue generated by the song will be donated to The Rainforest Trust and Big Life Africa. Webby has also donated $20,000 of his own funds to these causes. The artists also urge viewers to donate of their own accord.

The Youtube comments on this video seem pretty accurate.

This summertime guitar production mixes well with BabyJake's raspy singing, harmonies and a blackbear type of tone.  Also reminiscent of the Dominic Fike wave that's taking over, we're excited to hear more talente...
