"Art in America", music,songs, has just released a new album. "Hentschel Sessions-2013" is now available for purchase on various internet sites including iTunes, Amazon, etc.. Tracks 1 - 6 on this album were produced by world famous english producer David Hentschel (Genesis, Queen, Elton John, George Harrison, Yellowjackets, George Harrison, Andy Summers, etc). This new album features the original Art in America line-up with the addition of Tony Levin on bass guitar and Chapman Stick. I have just now added 3 of these songs to our list below. See "Drool", "i am i" and "Someday."
Art in America, 1st album was re-released by Renaissance Records on May 15 2008. Original release date was 1984. Still available for purchase at Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, etc.
I am using IACmusic as a depository for old and new AIA demos, as well as a few of the Eddy Offord produced tracks and some "live-in concert" recordings. If you would like to hear any of the new music, please go the bands pages on Youtube or Soundcloud.
Art in America was the first rock band to feature a string harpist playing a full Lyon & Healy pedal string harp. AIA garnered considerable airplay and MTV video play when the album was released. AIA then toured in support of the album, headlining and opening for bands such as: U2, Split Enz, Roxy Music, Bill Bruford, Captain Beefheart, King Crimson and Steve Hackett.
A 1983 concert, originally recorded by King Biscuit Flower Hour, can be currently streamed for free at Wolfgang's Vault.com. The influential LP cover artwork painted by Ioannis, was featured in the book "1000 Record Covers" by Michael Ochs, published by Taschen.
