  Keith Garde   Producer, Chief Operating Officer  keith@cleangreenmusicmachine.org  Blessed with the richness of a life in the arts, inspired by the storytellers of our time, I have felt music’s power to eliminate the distance between us, to affect change on a global scale. To support the next generation in coming together inspired by the joy of music to create a sustainable future for themselves, their children and generations to follow, would be the most important work I will have ever done.

  Reni and Peni   Spokespeople / Advisors  We sing back-up on alot of the Turn IT UP! songs but even more importantly, we work to get kids excited about creating a world that's great and livable for everyone. Kids are stepping up and coming together from all over the planet to figure out and work to make this happen - for us, for future generations and even for this one too.
