Ben Jelen Foundation @ SXSW
AUSTIN, Texas: Besides performing at showcases, Ben Jelen came to South by Southwest music festival to help raise money for his new environmental charity. But the singer-songwriter admits that trying to keep green while touring is harder than it seems.
"It's difficult because at the end of the day, you are putting CO2 (carbon dioxide) in the air because of your activities," Jelen told The Associated Press. "One day we will have a tour bus that doesn't run on gas."
Jelen, 27, held court Friday at the Eastport Cafe, a converted bar and gifting suite for which sponsors donated about $10,000 (6,426)to his Ben Jelen Foundation. Jelen said the charity had four goals: to educate teens about environmentalism, aid those affected by climate change, to invest in alternative and clean energy sources and to finance organizations that campaign for a better climate.
Though he acknowledges that tour buses, including his, can create a lot of waste, he also said he is a big recycler. Jelen released his second album, "Ex-Sensitive," last summer, and performed at showcases here in Austin for SXSW. "It's random ears that might make a difference in your career," said Jelen. But he joked that his charity may have made a bigger splash than his music. "I can't seem to raise a penny for myself, but when it comes to a cause, it's different!" he said.

It takes balls the size of church bells to refer to your own band as the "evil BEATLES." To actually back that statement up, and then some, requires the kind of talent that comes down the pike once, maybe twice a decade, if we're lucky. BIGELF backs it up, and then some... Click Here
