Arthur Lee Land - Electro-Americana, High-Tech Meets Grassroots!

The Lyons Colorado based singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and unforgettable Loop Artist Arthur Lee Land, will release his 4th album Cracked Open, May 14, 2013 on Perfect Groove Records. Arthur offers a groundbreaking style that is driven by the integration of sophisticated musical, emotional and spiritual juxtapositions. It's been said; "Every one of these songs sticks to your soul…."

Musically speaking, Electro-Americana may best describe Arthur Lee Land's eclectic fusion of folk-rock, AfroGrass (worldbeat/bluegrass) and electronica, but cannot fully explain the unique dynamics at work when Arthur enters the studio or takes the stage. Arthur's intuitive collaboration with his non-performing lyricist/wife Carol Lee is an integral part of the artistic landscape of Arthur Lee Land.

Arthur's autobiographical song and music video "Good Enough" are a key part of an internet based charity widget that will raise money for AbleChild: Parents for Label and Drug Free Education—a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to parents, caregivers and ADD/ADHD children's rights. AbleChild Co-Founder Sheila Matthews says "AbleChild is thrilled to see such a talented musician recognize that children possess an innate, creative spirit that needs to be nurtured and channeled rather than subdued by psychiatric labels and drugs. Arthur should be viewed as a role model for all our children so that they know they can be themselves, learn, and succeed" All proceeds of sales of the song will go directly to raise money for this charity. If you or anyone you know has children that are labeled "ADD/ADHD" please check out: www.ablechild.org

Arthur tours as an innovative solo act using the Art of Live-Looping to create an "on the fly" full band sound by layering acoustic guitars, six string banjo, mandolin, B-Bender Telecaster, bass, African percussion, drum samples, beat boxing and other electronic sonic textures and effects.
