Earth Mama is an environmental entertainer and motivational speaker who uses song and humor to teach concepts like ecospirituality, sustainable living, biodiversity and SRI (socially responsible investing). Her programs and CDs are highly inspirational, giving Cultural Creatives new information and new commitment to preserving our beloved Earth.

Earth Mama creates music in a variety of styles: Some are pop, some are bluesy, some are jazzy. She might even surprise you with a little bossa nova, tango, or world music rhythms. Her lyrics are diverse too, ranging from reverent to informative to downright funny! But here are some things you can count on in every Earth Mama song:

  • melodies you can hum or sing along with

  • professional recordings made with top musicians in the finest studios

  • lyrics that mean something, lyrics you can hear, lyrics you can listen to with your grandmother without being embarrassed
