I Still Hear Him Singing His Song

I still hear him singing his song When the wind blows late at night I see him moving to the music When I close my eyes real tight

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and live, wake up and love Give thanks and praise to the heaven’s above

I can see him in the moonlight Always shining down on me
I see him in his children’s smile I hear him in this melody

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and laugh, wake up and play Cherish the moments we share everyday

I hear him laughing when the rain falls He says, “It lifts my spirit high” I feel him every time the sun shines And know his love will never die

He says ‘Wake up and dance, wake up and sing For you never know what tomorrow may bring Wake up and live, wake up and love Give thanks and praise to the heaven’s above

I still hear him singing his song

Love Thy Neighbor!!!

Mama, why they shoot them down? Just because their skin is brown Tell me why they curse them so? Everywhere these people go Father, why they hang them high? Say that they deserve to die Tell me why they act so cruel? Don’t they know the golden rule?

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to these words that command Love thy neighbor through and through

Mama, why they cut them down? Kick them when they’re on the ground Tell me where’s the victory? When you have to kill somebody

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to the words that command To love thy neighbor through and through

Eye for eye, tooth for tooth Has never worked before Ancient minds in modern times Always leads to war

Do unto your brother man As you would have them do to you Heed to the words that command To love thy neighbor through and through

Who's Gonna Take Care of Lucille?

Work of Art

In cart Not available Out of stock

Uniquely styled blues, rock, pop, reggae, good-feeling-music.

This song is a tribute to the "KING of THE BLUES", B.B. King and his beloved guitar, Lucille. I'm grateful to have met BB a few times over the years and talk with him about her. BB and Lucille...a beautiful love story!

Art Ski: Guitars, Bass, Drums, Vox Ed Ignatz Stein: Keyboards Sybil Scoby: Backing Vox

Who’s Gonna Take Care of Lucille? You won’t hear her crying On this dark blue day in May All you can hear is silence Now that her man has gone away As the sun is sinking With all the sorrow that we feel There’s just one thing that’s on my mind Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Who’s going to hold her in their arms now? Who in this world will make her sing? Who’s gonna love her, the way that he loved her? She was queen, he was King As the stars are shining On a Mississippi field There’s just one thing I just don’t understand Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Now her highway days are over She’s far away from the bright spotlight She sits alone, in a room filled with blues Stays home all day and all night And as the moon is rising This life we live seems so surreal Now there’s just one thing, that’s still on my mind Tell me who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

As the sky is crying Tell me how can this wound ever heal? Through this pain I still keep wondering Wondering who, who’s gonna take care of Lucille?

Two friends/ Two acoustic guitars / Two vocals

From "The One Take Sessions": The One Take Sessions are live unedited in studio recordings using high definition video with high fidelity audio at the Katonah Mill Studio. Relentliss Music presents The One Take Sessions featuring: Going Vegan by Work of Art Art Ski: Guitar and Vocals Al Maddy: Guitar and Backing Vocals Written by Art 'Ski' Halperin © 2014

Produced and Recorded at The Katonah Mill Studio by John and Greg Lissauer

Besides playing as a duo, Art and Al play in the band, "WORK OF ART". The band was built around the award-winning song writing, singing, and inspired guitar playing of Art Ski. Based in New York, Work of Art is an ever-changing band playing uniquely styled rock, pop, reggae, good-feeling-music. Away from home, they've successfully toured throughout the US., Europe, South America, and the Caribbean, both headlining and opening up for acts such as Santana, Jerry Garcia, Third World, Jimmy Cliff, The Police, Bo Diddley, and Chuck Berry. As a solo artist, Art has shared the stage with Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt, Marty Stuart, Joni Mitchell, Robbie Robertson (the Band), The Temptations, David Grisman, Doc Watson and Glen Tillbrook of Squeeze.

Art's abilities have taken him in many different directions. As a composer, songs he's written for other artists have appeared on Billboard's R&B, Pop, and even Classical charts. He's written and recorded on many national and international albums, TV., and Radio commercials. Along with his band, he's also been featured on screen in the John Sayles movie "Baby it's You."

The legendary producer and talent scout John Hammond Sr., (the man who discovered Dylan, Springsteen and Aretha Franklin among many others) was so impressed with Art's music that he signed Art as the first artist on Hammond/CBS Records. A ten-song album was completed for the label. After Hammond passed away, rock history books have noted Art to be “John Hammond's last discovery”.

Going Vegan

I hear they’re shutting down Sea World They say they’re closing up the zoo Mama say’s she’s going vegan Daddy say’s he’s going too

Mama wants to save the planet Daddy wants to save the bee’s They want to clean up all the oceans They even want to save the trees

Woa Oh… The times are changing Woa Oh…You see it all across the land Woa Oh…When the mothers and the fathers Woa Oh…Finally understand

Now, if you want to save mankind Then you gotta save the earth You know it’s never too late, son To know what every life is worth

Mama says she loves all doggies Daddy says he love the cats So if you’re gonna eat the chickens Then why don’t you eat rats?

The times are changing All across this land When the mothers and the fathers Finally take a stand

Now mama says she’s going vegan Daddy says he’s going green They say, “You’re with me or without me ‘cause there ain’t no in between” Art 'Ski' Halperin © 2014

Christmas in the Caribbean (Remastered)

Meeka and Her Cool Cousins

In cart Not available Out of stock

Children's music for kids 1 to 100!

This project was actually conceived by a four-and-a-half year old girl named Meeka Saragina. After years of watching her father singing and recording in his home studio, she asked to make her own recording. The result...Four albums sung entirely by kids. At eight-years-old, Meeka was the youngest artist to ever sign a recording contract with Youngheart Music. Her cousins who sing on these songs come from a wide range of ethnic backgrounds and ages, from one-and-a-half to nine years old. Besides being educational and instilled with a gentle morality, this is downright fun and exciting for both children and adults!! Co-written and co-produced by Meeka and her father, Art Halperin, these unique songs blend Caribbean-style rhythms and melodies with up-beat pop music. Art is a professional musician and award-winning-composer who has toured throughout the world and has written and recorded for a variety of national and international projects. Meeka's albums have won her: Parents Choice Award, Childrens Music Web Awards, USA Songwriting Competition Best Childrens Song, ASCAP Songwriters Award ...What the critics say... Meeka is the Shirley Temple for the ...her star quality pops through as she deals with kids topics like running for the ice cream truck and treating bugs respectfully. * Lois Alter Mark-PARENTS CHOICE I saw the future of kids music and her name is Meeka * Dano-WNEW FM Radio, New York Meekas tape has charmed everyone in our family Bill McCoy-Parents Magazine Meeka and Her Cool Cousins is the Sgt. Pepper of Childrens music...A great CD for the Meeka in all of us * Elvis & Elliot-Z100 Radio, New York These little performers are as charming as all get out Lynne Heffley-LA Times These excellent songs get to the heart of childhood. This is more than a novelty recording. It holds up well to repeated listenings. Rob Reid-School Library Journal Absolutely adorable very engaging for both adults and children, not to mention original. Torrie Dorrell-Kid Rhino Meeka and Her Cool Cousins are back with one of the most enthusiastic and creative recordings of the year. Their true talent shines with hilarious patter, set-ups, and sound effects between and during songs. The production quality is first-rate. Kids of all ages will find this recording truly "Cool." Eau Claire Public Library I have never heard a recording with kids having so much fun. It's got a life of its own...kids will want to listen to it over and over just to be a part of it Dave Z / The Carousel-WPKN FM, Conn. The songs by Meeka and her father have clever lyrics...a unique addition to any music collection *Andrea Greif-Gannett Newspapers
