Sustain the Environment


M.U.S.E. is an all volunteer, 501(c)3 non-profit organization founded by Walkin’ Jim Stoltz and Craig Wagner.  It’s group of mostly professional touring musicians who are concerned about the health of our planet. Many of them draw their inspiration from the land, and feel the need to give something back toward protecting it. They’ve banded together to release powerful collections of music. The profits from the M.U.S.E. compilation recordings goes toward grants to small, cutting-edge conservation organizations that can get a lot done with limited amounts of funding. By supporting M.U.S.E. you are also supporting important environmental projects all across America.MUSE LOGO (2)

“…This is probably the best various artists compilation of specifically ecologically-oriented music I’ve encountered……it is a real accomplishment when an album of music all about environmental themes can produce a sense of holism and hope. The aptly titled One Land , One Heart accomplishes just that, evoking the beauty of the American land, sadness at environmental destruction, but also true hope for the future, a celebration of the spirit that sings or lies latent within all of us. This music recognizes that ultimately it is not an us vs. them struggle, but a collective human journey toward wholeness that we need to undertake…. Both lyrically and musically, these selections are intelligent, genuine, rooted in real connections with the earth.”   —- From a review in Talking Leaves (Winter ’99 edition) by Chris Roth
