In 2015 Sherry Finzer, award-winning New Age flute player and CEO of Heart Dance Records, invited Art to write and record one holiday song for her Arizona musicians compilation “Christmas From The Heart” CD. His song “The Gift” was recorded at Clamsville Studios in Candler by John Herrera music producer and engineer. Art recorded his harmonica tracks while John provided the New Age ambient musical tones and rhythms to make the song a peaceful contribution to the project. This experience opened the doors for Art to record a full-length CD of original harmonica instrumentals at Clamsville, with John Herrera providing all the ambient music to turn each song into a unique soundscape, taking the listener on a musical journey.
Art's music has received extensive airplay on the NPR syndicated show Echoes and international airlines. He performed at the Zone Music Reporter Awards show in New Orleans, where he was nominated for Best New Artist 2017.
