Art Bergmann is an eponymous album by Art Bergmann, originally released in 1991 on cd and cassette by Polygram. Produced by Chris Wardman the album was recorded and mixed at Manta Sound in Toronto and included the charting singles “Faithlessly Yours”, “If She Could Sing”, and “Message from Paul”.
The 2017 re-release is entitled Remember Her Name which is the lead song from the album, a tribute to Marianne Faithful. Art initially wanted to call the song “Marianne Faithful” but his label at the time were concerned about the legalities and made him change the name of the song, which became “Remember Her Name”. The new re-release was re-mastered by Noah Mintz at Lacquer Channel Mastering and includes the unreleased bonus track “Wide On/Hard Body” which was recorded during the original sessions. The re-release also contains new artwork composed of recent photos by longtime friend and photographer Sharon Steele, and photographer Lisa MacIntosh, who shot portraits of Art for her Great Hall series.
“The Apostate” is Art Bergmann’s first full length of new material since the Juno winning “What Fresh Hell Is This” and is the follow up to his well-received 2014 ep release “Songs For The Underclass”. Mesmerizing and masterful, “The Apostate” displays a rejuvenated singer songwriter who at the top of his lyrical game, has pushed his sound significantly, creating some of his most dynamic songs ever recorded.
