"Art in America", music,songs, has a new forthcoming 2018 release. The release will involve updates to the David Hentschel produced album, as well as songs mixed and produced by band member Jim Kuha. Look for it in September 2018.
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.
