    Arthur's latest studio CD release Happy Cow, is a two-song precursor to his upcoming CD/DVD double disc set, due out this winter on Perfect Groove Records. These two original tracks, Happy Cow and Monet Sky, highlight the two distinct songwriting voices at play in “Lee Land.” Arthur's positive message-style lyrics, balanced with the powerful collaboration between lyricist and wife Carol Lee, and her use of archetypal psychology, naturalism, spirituality, and evocative story lines revealed in Monet Sky.

    The inspiration to write Happy Cow came after Arthur met Francis Thicke and visited his organic dairy farm, Radiance Dairy in Fairfield, Iowa. Thicke, (pronounced “ticky”) a sustainable dairy farmer with a Ph.D and former USDA Soil Science Program Leader, is campaigning for the position as Iowa’s next Secretary of Agriculture, against a candidate backed by corporate agribusiness. The song Happy Cow was chosen to be a focal point for an online music video contest helping to spread the word that “what happens in Iowa will impact the nation.” To further support Thicke’s campaign, a celebrity judge panel for the contest included filmmaker David Lynch, bestselling author Michael Pollan, actor Stephen Collins, and King Corn filmmaker Aaron Woolf.

    Arthur states: “I feel like the issue of clean food and sustainable agriculture is reaching critical mass. From my perspective, this IS a national election. When I heard that the people who typically vote for this office are over 55, I knew we needed to find ways to reach younger people in Iowa who care about their food and the systems that produce it.” Visit www.friendsoffrancisthicke.com to learn about Francis and what you can do to help.

    ALL PROCEEDS FROM THE SALE OF THIS CD GO TO SUPPORT THE CAMPAIGN UNTIL THE ELECTION IS OVER ON NOVEMBER 2ND.

lyrics

MONET SKY
I flew down and skimmed the stream
I’m never too down and I never get mean
I JUST DREAM
Time keeps passing and I don’t know why
I’m gonna lay these bones beneath a Monet sky
WITH JUST BLUES
WITH JUST BLUES

IF YOU GET LONELY
I’M NEVER TOO FAR AWAY
WHEN I GET LONELY
YOU'RE NEVER TOO FAR AWAY NO NO
I love the ocean I want to stand in it’s breeze
Surfing on it’s currents where my spirit flies free
I CAN BE
I JUST BE
Standing at the river where your calling my name
Tried on your loving kindness I’ll never be the same
I JUST BREATHE
I JUST BREATHE

IF YOU GET LONELY
I’M NEVER TOO FAR AWAY
WHEN I GET LONELY
YOU'RE NEVER TOO FAR AWAY NO NO
LA DAH DAH DAH DAH LA DAH
