Don't Panic, It's Street Musician Art Paul Schlosser!

My friend Art Paul Schlosser is a very fun street musician in Madison, Wisconsin. He can often be seen singing along State Street and the Capitol Square, where students frequently stop and insist that he play one of their favorites. Art has been mentioned by Stephen Colbert and was one of the favorite "failed" tryouts for "America's Got Talent" when they auditioned in Chicago in 2010 (second video below). In the first video here, Art warms up a crowd with jokes before singing a song from his current CD "If I Was Governor," which is available at Apple iTunes, Napster, Rhapsody, and, of course at cdbaby.com. In the third video, Art stunned the WGN TV morning crew in late 2007 with some snippets of his music. Art is also known his writing in Street Pulse, a newspaper written and sold by homeless people in Madison. He's not homeless, but he enjoys writing and helping those who live in the streets.
