Arthur Lee Land- Two year wait to release his new CD

Arthur Lee Land CD Cover

Arthur Lee Land just released his fourth CD “Cracked Open” last month. Health issues delayed the release of the CD. Shortly after finishing the album, it was losing his voice completely, finding a polyp on his vocal cord (and the healing without surgery 6 months later), relocating back to Colorado and then being diagnosed with Graves (Hyperthyroid) Disease that forced him to wait almost two years to finally release this album.

Arthur took a different approach to recording the CD

“We recorded one song a week in my home studio, and we didn’t know what the next song would be until the day before we recorded it. It was always like “what’s next?” We had about 40 songs to choose from but we had no idea what songs were going to end up on the record and we had to trust the process,” says Arthur. In fact the song order on the CD is the exact order that the tracks were recorded in.”

The title track “Cracked Open” grabbed me right away with the up tempo beat and great lyrics. “Good Enough” is Arthur’s autobiographical song and the music video “Good Enough” is a key part of an internet based charity widget that will raise money for AbleChild.Org: Parents for Label and Drug Free Education—a nationally recognized non-profit organization dedicated to the rights of parents, caregivers and “ADD/ADHD labeled” children.

“As a ‘hyperactive’ guinea pig for Ritalin, I wish my parents had this kind of support back in the day. I wouldn’t have had to wait 30 years to re-frame this ‘disorder’ as the truly dynamic gift that it is.” says Arthur.

The CD “Cracked Open” is available now on iTunes, Arthur will be on tour making several stops in Washington State and California over the next several weeks. You can get tour dates and locations as well as learn more about Arthur by visiting his website Tune in Sunday at 6:00pm Mountain Time or any time after that via on demand at to hear a couple of tracks from the “Cracked Open” CD. This is one CD I think you will want to add to your collection.
