Before the "ADHD" label was being used in our school systems, I was a guinea pig for Ritalin as a so called "hyperactive" 5th grader. Looking back, I wish my parents had AbleChild.Org as a resource. If we had that 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.

Watch the official music video above for my autobiographical song "Good Enough." AND if you have friends, family or know parents who have "ADD" or "ADHD" kids, please let them know about AbleChild.Org

Arthur Lee Land Joins Great American Taxi 

I recently joined the Colorado Americana Jam Band “Great American Taxi” replacing Vince Herman of Leftover Salmon. These guys have been pals of mine since they started back in 2005. “Americana Without Borders” best describes their sound and I’ll bringing my singing, songwriting, B-Bender Telecaster pickin’ and more to this party giving the band sound a new flavor for sure. We just finished mixing our new album that Tim Carbone of Railroad Earth is producing and will be out later this year or early next. The…

Lyons Flood and life update 

I sent this out in my last newsletter:   We woke up on the morning of Thursday September 12th to a raging river in our backyard with no electricity. Apparently we didn’t hear the sirens in the middle of the night evacuating people from their homes. The next 6 days we were without power, water or gas except for the fact we had an RV that had about 15 gallons of diesel fuel to tun the generator so we had a refrigerator we could put our food into as well as our neighbor’s food. Plus it had a propane stove that…

Lyons CO Flood 

Quite an amazing week. We are so grateful to be safe and up on high ground with our own well, septic and connected to power from Longmont. We got power back late Monday night and Internet today. Cell service has been bad and still is.

Since we have had access to an RV that has a fridge and a generator, along with 100 gallons of rain water I collected on Friday plus ample food and drinking water we have been able to spend time helping our neighbors instead of leaving town right away.

I will post videos of…

Road Gratitude!!! 

Coming close to the end of our 6 week West Coast tour. Big thanks to everyone who shared their hearts, homes, meals and love with us. Looking forward the next loop back around this fall! So many highlights… like playing the Vintage Wine Bar in Redding CA and having to play at 11:30AM the next morning at KPIG with John Sandidge in Watsonville CA…then right after that finding diesel fuel leaking from the RV. Seems like when the worst things happen they occur in the best possible scenario!

I am blessed for…

Lots of Radio Airplay in Holland!!! 

It’s been a dream of mine to play in Holland and not everyone knows my full name is Arthur Leland Sikking III and that I am 1/3 Dutch on my dad’s side. I’ve heard that “Sikking” is a common name in Northern Holland so I find it quite exciting to be featured on the following Dutch radio shows in the last week: Acoustic Rain, Crossroads, Delta Rhythm, EasterGirl, Harky In English, Landslide, Muziek En Toch, Paul van Gelder, PeelGrass and RadioGirl!!!!  I want to give a big THANK YOU to all the Dutch DJ’s from

Many of you know we moved back to Colorado this fall and we are so happy to be here in Lyons in our new pad. I’m excited to share with everyone some of the projects we’ve been working on very soon.

One of the symptoms is bulging eyeballs which has been evident is my most recent looping video as well as the video above. I have been going about an…

Christmas Gift 12-21-2012 

Well it’s Dec 21 2012 and in light of current events and the season, my songwriting partner Carol and I were inspired to write a Christmas song and try our amateur hands at filming a music video. I was invited to play at the annual Christmas Eve celebration in our new hometown of Lyons CO. We wanted to contribute something special and this is what came through. We wrote, recorded, filmed and edited the song in 4 days this week. I recorded a simple acoustic guitar and vocal version of the song that is…

Healing Hiatus 8-7-2012 

I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus over the last two years writing, recording and developing some new technologies for my live show. (I posted a video of my version of Strawberry Fields Forever below from last Friday’s show since so many people have been asking about my arrangement) Not to mention totally losing my voice last fall because of a polyp on my vocal cord. That put me on an emotionally intense 6 month healing journey that ended up with miraculous healing WITHOUT having to do the standard surgical…
