Say What? A Conversation with Music Declares Emergency's Maddy Read Clarke

The Creative Climate / Episode 13

EP 13 of the Creative Climate Podcast sees our host, Perry Serpa mind melding with UK-based Music Declares Emergency campaign director, Maddy Read Clarke. No doubt, another music industry veteran at the ready for climate forwardness. Maddy goes beyond MDE's uber successful "NO MUSIC ON A DEAD PLANET" campaign to discuss plans for the near future, including TURN UP THE VOLUME and other collaborative activities and announcements around Earth Day with organizations such as EarthPercent, a new music industry-focused climate org headed up by none other than the iconic music maker/producer/visionary Brian Eno, among others.

We also give Maddy the opportunity to tell her own music biz story, talk to us about the early days of Music Declares and their part in the XR-driven Marble Arch climate rally, and to even stake her claim to this episode's Hottest On Record, a new UK indie outfit called Roscoe Roscoe and their rocker, "Brain Retrieve." Incidentally, the band's singer/guitarist Charlie Read Clarke, is Maddy's son.
