Cloud Cult has a more than two-decade long career and have remained staunchly independent throughout, finding success on their own terms and earning critical praise over the years including recent features by NPR’s On Being, Entertainment Weekly and KCRW for their latest studio album and feature length film The Seeker which stars Josh Radnor and Alex McKenna. The powerful emotional journey that this album and film take you on fits perfectly into Cloud Cult’s extensive catalogue that includes nine other full-length studio albums, Unplug – a live album and film, No One Said It Would Be Easy – a documentary film and Stories From the Road – a series of short films. The common thread through what Cloud Cult does as a creative collective is their uplifting message, continual celebration of life and love and catharsis through music.
In addition, the band’s green efforts are unmatched. Cloud Cult’s founder Craig Minowa and his wife Connie formed Earthology in 1999, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization focused on providing individuals, schools, and business tools for environmental sustainability. Minowa created the Earthology Records branch to help green the music industry and co-developed the first 100% postconsumer recycled CD packaging in the U.S. market. The band began zero net greenhouse gas practices for tours long before it was trendy and their merchandise is 100% postconsumer recycled or made of certified organic materials. On top of that, Cloud Cult has planted several thousand trees to absorb the band's CO2 output, their studio is powered by geothermal energy and built partially from reclaimed wood and recycled plastic and they donate heavily to projects that build wind turbines as revenue generators on Native American Reservations.
The band has toured consistently throughout their career and their shows always feature live painters on stage, a longstanding tradition for the group (read more about that HERE Wall Street Journal). This past year, they played live along with The Seeker and in 2018 they played a sold out show as part of Lincoln Center’s American Songbook Series.
