Trophic Cascade features 14 songs that dip into rock, country, folk, soul, and psychedelia. A devoted environmentalist and progressive activist, O’Neill touches on such themes in his music—but not without putting his money where his mouth is: He plans to donate 50 percent of the album’s sales to “frontline earth protection groups, with a focus on indigenous rights and conservation.”
This is O’Neill live in 2011:
