Project Leadership Details
Project Director: Traci Hickson has a Bachelor’s degree in Human Ecology from College of the Atlantic (’98 coa.edu) in Bar Harbor, Maine and a Master’s degree in Applied Community Change and Conservation from the Future Generations Graduate School (’05, future.edu). She has been an environmental radio broadcaster since the age of 15, producing programs from 1992-2001. In 1998, she received a Thomas J. Watson Fellowship to study the role of community radio stations in advancing environmental and social change worldwide. In 1999, she returned home to West Virginia, where she has worked as the Director of Communications and Conservation Team Coordinator for Future Generations (future.org) and the Future Generations Graduate School (future.edu).
Together with friends, Traci began compiling the green music list in 1990 under the banner of Web of Life Audio. This list has grown through the years with contributions from recording artists, recording companies, and individuals worldwide. It is with great joy that we now have an opportunity with Musicians United to Sustain the Environment to share this wide diversity of music for the diversity of life.
President Craig Wagner co-founded MUSE with Walkin Jim Stoltz. Craig is former Marketing Director for Hewlett Packard and a contributing recording artist to MUSE albums.
