Ari Hest

Ari Hest mini-playlist

They're On To Me

Since I'm such a music freak, I spend lots of time on MySpace cruising for new music. This is where I discovered Ari Hest two years ago . . . he has become one of my favorite singer/songwriters and as a relative newcomer, I expect great things are gonna happen for Ari.

This is an excerpt from his website

A productive musician and prolific songwriter, Ari writes songs every week and tours consistently throughout the year, honing the tunes in front of ever-appreciative audiences. During the two years since his major label debut, Ari has produced two DIY recordings -- 2005's Guilty Hearts EP and 2006's The Green Room Sessions -- for which he produced and recorded his performances on every instrument using Apple's GarageBand software. Still, there was plenty of new material ready for The Break-In. "By the time we began recording for this album, I had enough songs written that I didn't have to write anything in the studio," Ari says of the song selection. "We just had to arrange what was already there."
