I came across this man and his music when I found his last album "Come Home" at Awarestore last year. It was a self financed album but you heard his huge talent a long way. Over the past half decade, Aris been building his fan-base through a savvy combination of old-school essentials: hook-filled, classically structured pop-rock songs, charismatic presence, natural talent, musical chops and determination, and a blue-collar work ethic that has kept him touring the country constantly for the past three years. On his major label debut you have a few tracks from this album, but much more produced and I can make it clear from the start... THIS CD IS A MUST. At least if you like me love acoustic well produced modernsinger songwriters. Ari Hest plays in the highest league of artists. Phew... The opener "Theyre On To Me" is a marvellous opener and sets the status and tone of the album. And that is followed but the same sort of self-confidence on the whole album from a man that got a voice from heaven. Buy this album right away folks if you love this new scene with modern troubadours. I guarantee you will love this album as much as I do. Listen to fifth out "Holding On"... If it doesnt grab you - youre probably deaf. Almost 4.5 in the grading.
