Organically Grown Reunites with Sunset Sessions and TreePeople

It’s been an amazing past few days. The fun started this past Thursday at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California with Michele Clark’s Sunset Sessions. Sunset Sessions brings amazing recording artists together with radio program directors, record companies, and music supervisors. This was the first Sunset Sessions where the music genre was alternative rock, and the performances included Redlight King, Dead Sara, and Drive A, among many others. Thank you Michele for including Organically Grown as a sponsor of your amazing event. You are fearless.

On Saturday, we participated in the TreePeople‘s first annual Green City Fair at their headquarters in Coldwater Canyon. The Organically Grown booth was outside, positioned across from a spectacular stream above the 216,000 gallon cistern. It was a family reunion, where I got to see so many friends that we have planted and cared for trees with. Carl and Hero, the official Organically Grown mascots, were on hand for the festivities. We happily donated 50% of our day’s proceeds to the TreePeople.

We look forward to working with both of these great organizations in the future. What makes them great are the people behind them.

Sunset Sessions Goes Organic

I just returned from Sunset Sessions, which was held at the La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, California.  This year was the fourteenth anniversary of Sunset Sessions, which was created by one of my dearest friends, Michele Clark.  Michele was in the music business before she even knew it, putting band flyers on the windshields of cars in nightclub parking lots. Michele became an iconic independent promoter in the recording industry, helping to be responsible for breaking hundreds of acts, including Maroon 5, Norah Jones, Coldplay, and John Mayer on the radio and Colbie Caillat, Zac Brown, and Jason Mraz at Sunset Sessions.  Sunset Sessions was Michele’s idea to bring together record companies, radio programmers, and film and television music supervisors to listen to emerging recording artists.  Over four days, I was fortunate enough to listen to 45 amazing artists and bands that will be the superstars of tomorrow, along with established artists such as Stevie Nicks, KD Lang, John Waite and Vanessa Carlton.

I would like to thank Michele for “going organic” and allowing the Sunset Sessions t-shirts to be made by Organically Grown and for allowing me to speak to the music community about the benefits of organic cotton and our company, Organically Grown.
