The environment is the most important issue on my agenda. As part of an environmentally focused partnership with Three Pin Records, 1% of my album proceeds are donated to 1% For The Planet, benefiting the Organic Farming Research Foundation. All of my albums, tours, and other business related activities are carbon neutral through financial contributions to The Climate Trust's and Native Energy's offset portfolio . I also endorse the following: NAU - balancing beauty, performance and sustainability into their clothing designs. Use the promo code "NEW2NAU” which is good for 10% off anything on Clif Bar - the #1 indie bar supporting the environment and grassroots music. Living Intentions - live enzymes, raw ingredients, eco-friendly kindness, and vegan love = delicious food! HomeBrew Electronics - dedicated to building top quality custom guitar effects pedals. Each pedal is carefully hand crafted one at a time using only the highest quality components. I'm currently taking their all analog phase shifter, the "Psiloscybe" to new heights! Robert Keeley Electronics - The Keeley Compressor has become an industry standard for stomp box compression. The sound will inspire, your music will flow freely, and you can just let your head, heart, and fingers fly from here. Guyatone Pedals - I'm way into their "micro series" which boasts professional-grade features and exceptional sound quality in an ultra-compact, lightweight chassis that is 33% smaller and 50% lighter than your average stompbox. There is always room for one of these little analog delights on my live pedal board! EMMA Electronics - Advanced circuits, beautiful appearance, and amazing sound quality. Ernie Ball Strings - all paper inserts are made from 100% recycled paper — my new strings of choice!
