Ari Hest - Story After Story

Pär Winberg Format: Album
Year: 2003
Label: Project Records
Genre: Modern Singer Songwriter
Producer: David Rolfe
Artist discography


I found Ari Hest last year at Aware and bought myself his live album "Come Home, and have been stucked to the guy since then. Here is his new long awaited studioalbum and this is sure a great album for all you lovers of beautiful acoustic edged Midwest pop/rock. The album is produced by David Rolfe (Burlap To Cashmere, Rufus Wainwright and more) and he has done a great job and kept a close nerve through the production and songs. It all opens up with the great "They?re On To Me?, and continues with ?Fascinate You? with a clever melody. Song number three is the beautiful and soft ?Strangers Again? with an atmosphere quite close to a Lanois production, a brilliant tune and fourth out is also softer even if the title is ?Monster?... And in that way it continues. For fans who adore Neal Casal, Del Amitri, John Mayer and the softer side of Pete Droge will have another great guy in this 23-year-old guy. He plays in the same division, and he sure got some good damn star quality. And then I haven?t mentioned ?Hold On? ? which probably is the best tune on the album. Get your copy at
