Canadian Indie Laureate Art Bergmann Signs With Porterhouse Records

Porterhouse is proud to welcome Art Bergmann to it's roster. One of the most enduring individuals in music, Art has created a wealth of remarkable compositions that touch on both the personal and political.

Cut from the same fearless cloth as Lou Reed and embodying the explosiveness of early Elvis Costello, Art has consistently challenged listeners and critics. While many liken his works to that of contemporaries such as Bob Mould or Paul Westerberg, Art's path has always been his own, that of an innovator and explorer.

You can read more about Art's career and stream his music at his Artist Page here.

Porterhouse will be re-releasing Art's entire body of work, from his formative bands Young Canadians and Shmorgs to his award winning work as a solo artist. There'll even be a few rarities from in-between projects he has participated in over the years.

His last three studio releases are now available for purchase in the Porterhouse record store and those recordings are also streaming at his Artist Destination here at our site. Have a listen to what he's been up to lately and check back here regularly for updates on re-issues, new material and his upcoming written memoir.

Welcome home Art!
