“I’ve worked with Robert Greeson for over a decade on various design projects. We always arrive at a great place creatively but on a personal level I always enjoy the process of getting there. He is a super friendly professional who is easy to communicate with.He has helped me initiate a concept when I had no starting idea, as well as taking my basic design concept to higher ground. Very versatile on all the projects we’ve done together. Add photographer James Bland who I’ve known for years and you truly have a one stop dream team.”

— John Bryant – Drummer for Ray Charles/Joe Walsh

“I can’t think of a better combination when it comes to photography and design than James Bland and Bobby Greeson. I’ve worked with each of them individually – both as an artist and on the corporate side of the Music Industry. They both have a keen instinct for knowing exactly what a project should look like, how it should feel, and they have a seemingly magical way of making it happen effortlessly. These two working together just makes sense.”
— Max Lintner – Musician/Grand Street Cryers/Kyser Musical Products, Inc.

“Art4Music – these guys aren’t fucking around. Serious talent, serious craft and the ability to work within tight budgets and timelines. For over 30 years Bobby Greeson has taken my projects, even the smallest, indie, vanity tripe, and turned them all into professional, engaging and extremely fun contenders in the world of music packaging and design. Bobby has the uncanny ability to tap into the unspoken visual world behind your music. Call, then run (take some beer) to his office and throw yourself at his feet and beg him to take your project. Definitely hire Art4Music if you think your music deserves the very best visual treatment it can get. Amen!!!”
— Michael Clay – Composer/Producer

“I’’ve worked with both of these gentlemen for years! Splended work!”
— Mike Medina – Musician/Producer/Arranger/Professor of Music

“My first choice for my artist’s bio/recording-related photography has been James Bland since the first day I met him at Q102 in Dallas in 1989 when he was hired by Atlantic Records to shoot the band I produced and managed, King’s X. Not only is an artistic genius but he’s become a friend who genuinely cares about the music of the artists that he captures. James introduced me to Robert Greeson and I feel the same way about him. Whether it’s CD packaging, a vinyl cover and layout or bio-related, these guys are top-notch, artist-driven and just plain good folks. You won’t be disappointed! I’ve never been.”
— Sam Taylor, Producer/Artist Management

“As a producer, engineer and studio manager for 32 years at Crystal Clear Sound I had the privilege to work on many occasions with both Bobby and James. I can accurately state without any reservations that they are 2 people. And on top of that, they are ridiculously talented and great to work with.”
— Keith Rust – Studio Manager, Crystal Clear Sound

“James Bland has photographed my sister & me, along with many of our friends & colleagues in the music business. His work is beautiful, fun, edgy, professional – whatever you need to bring out in your own self & in your work, James has the capability to see it in you, then to translate it into images that speak. If you’re looking for a great experience with an end result that “pops”, James can get it done!”
— Kimberly Brown Cain – Producer/Performing Artist

“Back 1988, when I launched my first company (Reel George Productions, Inc.) I used their services to create a valuable first impression. Now, nearly 30 years later, and some six companies, too, I still gravitate to their modern, snappy designs and quick turn on my projects.”
— George Gimarc – CEO, Today’s Comedy Network
