The Green Children are a European musical duo, who write and produce atmospheric electro-pop music. Milla Sunde (born 17 December 1983), from Norway, and Marlow Bevan (born 4 October 1984), from England, also established The Green Children Foundation, to support microcredit, education and healthcare. In June 2006, The Green Children shot a music video in Bangladesh to celebrate the work of Professor Muhammad Yunus, the father of microcredit and founder of Grameen Bank. In December 2006, The Green Children released a fundraising CD/DVD entitled Hear Me Now throughout Norway. Through sales and donations from around the world they raised $400,000 for one of the first eye hospitals in rural Bangladesh. The hospital was opened on the 12th of May 2008 by The Green Children and Prof. Muhammad Yunus, the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize winner. Prof. Yunus initiated this project with Grameen to save the sight of many of his countrymen and women. The hospital is currently working towards serving 50,000 people a year, 10,000 of which will receive the vital cataract operation and escape from a life of blindness. The Green Children met whilst studying at the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts and signed a major U.S. recording contract with Universal Music Group in 2008. Unhappy with their experience at a major label, The Green Children decided to leave Universal Motown in 2010 and signed a world-wide distribution deal with Los Angeles-based Spinside Records, a subsidiary of Inside Recordings, owned by legendary musician Jackson Browne. Spinside Records is distributed by Alternative Distribution Alliance and ADA Global, which are owned by Warner Music Group and Sub Pop Records. Their deal with Spinside Records was secured by their former manager Cheryl Bogart who worked with them in 2009/2010. Their self-produced album Encounter was released in October 2010, to great critical acclaim. Rolling Stone described it as a collection of Searching dance-pop ballads from elfin dreamers…Encounter glides by like Lady Gaga on a unicorn. Sunde gives synth-diva histrionics a mystical spritz, singing about dragons and black magic over skittering electro beats. Reema Kumari Jadeja from MOBO wrote that, The Green Children masterfully sprinkle sincere soul and magic into a music scene that requires some much needed fantasy and romanticism…The emerald duo's debut is an audio fairytale that confiscates all grips on reality and leaves one hopelessly daydreaming. Jackson Browne described Encounter as A hook fueled, emotional songscape - with powerful tracks and soaring, achingly beautiful vocals. Their first single Dragons was offered as a free download by Amazon. com, peaking at #3 in their 'pop' chart and at #9 overall. Encounter Remixed was released one month later in November 2010, which includes remixes from star DJs such as Paul Oakenfold and Digital Dog. Their music has been featured on the homepage of Young Hollywood, MSN, AOL, Yahoo, Amazon. com and on the iTunes Store. In April 2011, a remix of Life Saviour by 7th Heaven entered the Music Week UK Club charts at #17 (Pop Category). In October 2011, 'Encounter' was nominated in the first round of voting for a U.S. Grammy Award, in two categories, 'Best New Artist' and 'Best Pop Vocal Album'. Most recently (April 2012) The Green Children produced a Remix of 'Houdini' by chart toppers Foster The People. The animated YouTube video gained 500,000 views within two weeks of its release and benefited the charity SOS Children's Villages. It is rumored that The Green Children will release two albums in 2012 and will not use Spinside Records as a distributor on these releases.
