PH: Michelle, what is to you the most important environmentally conscious song?

MB: Song? Oh gosh, I don’t even know. You stumped me. That’s a really good question. Maybe I need to write it. I have no idea. I’m trying to think of a song about saving water. Maybe I should write a song about California and water. 

PH: Michelle, what inspired you to music at an early age?

MB: Music was, it wasn’t an option for me. I was singing since I could talk, and it was just kind of one of those things that I just always knew, I was going to grow up to do something involved with music. I didn’t know in what capacity, so I kind of assumed I’d be a Music Teacher, or something along the lines of that. And then I got discovered when I was 17, and here I am. 

PH: And why is the environment for you?

MB: The environment, the cause, is really important to me. I’m a Mom and have a daughter who is 8 and half (years old). I often stay awake at night wondering what this world is going to look like when she’s grown up. And if she decides to have children, and it’s terrifying.
