Hi Pat, can you please specify at what line are you getting class cast exception. In fact it will be better if you can provide the complete stacktrace. Also can you provide code for Artist cmp i.e. code for its home, remote and bean class.

Appears that two beans are registered with the same jndi name, you should check ejb-jar.xml file for that. Possibility of some other ear file having an ejb with this jndi name can not be ruled out as well, so you have to check other ear files also (if exists).
I hope this helps

Prakash, you GENIUS, I got it working. Cheers for the help!
I had two beans with the same JNDI name, it was from an old project! Deleted it from my server deploy folder and from my environment!
