My dream is to share a childlike appreciation of the natural world around me through
music. This song about a heartbroken alien observing earth from outer space.
About The Artist
Growing up in the Blue Mountains, Little Green developed a sense of storytelling and musicality inspired by the nature around her. Self-taught on flute, sax, guitar, piano, bass, and voice, she has used her talents to create a charmingly childlike musical world.
Having released two beautifully intimate projects, The Night EP and dreambird EP in 2021 and creating a soundtrack to the book, This Working Life, published by Hardie Grant, 2022 is set to be a breakout year for this songwriter on the rise.
Recently signing to Lemon Tree Management (Tash Sultana, Tones and I + more), Little Green wants to use her voice to celebrate the natural world with a sense of wonder and inspire a more mindful way of being.
Why I Wrote This Song
I wrote and produced The Night in my bedroom in 2020 during the devastating Australian bushfires.
The story is written from the perspective of an alien observing earth, heartbroken at the mess the humans have made. “Then came the smoke my heart broke”.
I think it is important the alien is not angry, just very sad. I hope this song will inspire a greater appreciation for the world that has given us life. I believe if we change our relationship with earth, to be more respectful, loving and connected, we can begin to heal.
I am only a human so I don’t understand a lot of things, but I can feel the deep wisdom of nature and I wish everyone would stop and listen for a moment.
Environmental Organisations I Admire
Peggy Oki (origami whales project), Low Tech Lab, Extinction Rebellion, Ocean Film Festival Australia, and WIRES. I am also really inspired by creators like Linda Jackson/Jenny Kee and the way they represented the Australian landscape in their clothing and art.
