The Dread Pirate Kimberlin’s bio over at Brett Kimberlin dot org contains this sentence:
He has worked for and with many progressive organizations, and currently is Director of Justice Through Music, a 501c3 non-profit that works with famous bands, musicians and artists to inspire and motivate young people to engage in civic participation.
Famous bands, musicians and artists …
Looking back over the past three months of the JTMP website’s postings, one can find lots of references to “famous bands, musicians and artists,” but only three instances that might be stretched to be considered working with them.
MAR 11, 2013 – An organization that JTMP is part of, “Artists Against Fracking”, have released a music video for their song, “Don’t Frack My Mother”. A funny song featuring many different artists, such as Josh Fox, Sean and Yoko Ono, and a whole bunch of other artists all chipping in for this hilarious protest song that is great for firing up the much-needed opposition to Fracking.
A group that JTMP is a part of made a video. What was JTMP’s participation other than promoting it on their website and YouTube?
MAR 31, 2013 – Occupy This Album …
JTMP is excited to announced the album has been nominated by The Independent Music Awards for the “Compilation of the Year”, and voting can be done by YOU! So head on over to the Occupy This Album web site, check out the songs, and then head on over to the Independent Music Awards web site and vote for this album!! Below is a JTMP video of one of the main activist-musicians that helped launch the project, Matt Pless.
That Matt Pless (Is he famous?) video is from a 2009 performance at a public event. Someone they recorded at a public event was nominated for an award for a project that had no involvement by JTMP.
MAY 31, 2013 – Aerosmith, who was blogged about recently by JTMP …
I’ve blogged about musicians too.
Brett Kimberlin says he’s into supporting green projects. Well, the stuff he’s spreading does make the grass grow green—unless it’s over used; then the grass dies.
