MUSICIAN-ENVIRONMENTALIST JON HARTMANN ADDRESSES AMERICA’S OIL ADDICTION WITH PRESIDENT GEORGE W. BUSH RAP “START A BUSINESS”

LOS ANGELES, CA --- President , George W. Bush (PGWB) a Rap artist? With the Internet swarming with PGWB parodies, it was time to exercise the First U.S. Amendment, “Freedom of Speech” utilizing clearer communication about war, profits and the environmental impact. Writer-Producer-Musician-Environmentalist, Jon Hartmann has released “George Bush Sings” in a rap-funk-groove download on
http://cdbaby.com/cd/jonhartmann4 , featuring tracks, “Don’t Believe Me,” “Let Us Bomb,” “Stay The Course,” “My Heart Breaks,” and
“Start A Business” which talks about America’s addiction to oil. Other new tracks will be added to the site for download as they are produced.

”George Bush Sings is an audio outing for those of us who happen to notice that the emperor's suit hides nothing. It was my thinking that if the Office of the President had truly become a theatre of the absurd, where words had no meaning, then it was time to arrange the order of the President's words so that they may better reflect the truth” states Hartmann. “This country has always had difficulty
escaping the influence of big oil. The way we built our cities and the reasons we went to war were most often at the request and benefit of the folks at the petroleum concerns. Many of the decisions made by government were in the best interest of the oil stockholders but may have been disastrous for the well-being of the planet. At a time when government must take the initiative to fundamentally change our energy and environmental policy, we have a president whose background in the oil business suggests that he may not have been suited to the task of leading the nation away from it's addiction to oil. This president stated that he was a uniter, not a divider, and yet he has done
more than any American president to polarize and disrupt the social fabric of the United States. 'Start A Business' is Bush’s version of “let them eat cake,” Hartmann explains.

Hartmann’s last album, “Pacific Electric,” pays tribute to Los Angeles’ long-lost Pacific Electric Railway and Hartmann’s thoughts of energy, policy and interest of expanding rail service between and inside cities to promote healthier air and trying to understand the removal of the Pacific Electric Railway. His previous albums, “3 if By Air” and “The 10th House” both featured CD cover graphics which reflect
Hartmann’s passionate visual statement about the fragile nature of the orb we populate. He feels fossil fuels have no place in our future. “If we continue to burn them at the current rate, two things will happen as sure as night follows day.....our economy will be disrupted beyond repair, and our planet, likewise, may be damaged sufficiently to induce global catastrophe,” states Hartmann.

Hartmann is a songwriter, musician, producer, music publisher and record label executive whose career has encompassed touring
the world. From his first overseas gig in Southeast Asia to entertain soldiers for the USO, to performing with Ike & Tina Turner in Germany with the Rolling Stones as audience spectators to co-writing with Jimmy Whitney, King of Pop, Michael Jackson’s 1975 hit "Goodness Knows." He’s currently producing his own works and others elaborating on his environmental beliefs as an activist and musical artist on his own independent label, Jon Hartmann Records.
