Reviews:

Originally discovered by Peter Gabriel, Arthur quickly established a reputation as a formidable and creative talent with his experimental folk rock style, diverse instrumentation and eclectic electronic production elements.

Live, he pioneered the use of loop pedals and layered vocals years before
Ed Sheeran et al picked up on it. An accomplished painter, he s displayed his
works in galleries around the world, and his online only Museum of Modern
Arthur (museumofmodernarthur.com) serves as a repository for his creations.

He is also a prolific writer, principally of poetry but has also written a children s book! His 20 plus albums range from solo records to collaborations with a who s who of rock n roll, including Lou Reed, Dhani Harrison and Ben Harper of Fistful of Mercy, Peter Gabriel, T Bone Burnett, and RNDM with Pearl Jam s Jeff Ament.
