Arthur Alder Jr.

Arthur Alder, a.k.a. Art Kleiner, is a vocalist / guitarist who has been singing American popular music for most of his life. Growing up in Switzerland where trends and styles tend to get “preserved” beyond their popularity in their country of origin, he was exposed to the work of American singers, entertainers and movie actors of an era earlier than his own. Inspired by the work of the American “legends of song,” he discovered his own passion for presenting their music – first in his native land Switzerland, then in the US and Canada.

“I discovered that music is truly the international language and that a good song and earnest presentation is appreciated and connects people anywhere I go. To sing the pop, country and jazz classics appeals to me because words and music flow in wonderful harmony. No wonder that these songs are links to the special times in people’s lives and it makes me happy to help them remember those times with the songs I sing.”
