Artist discography


We have to wait until March next year for the follow to the very nice ?Someone To Tell? from Ari Hest. I?m a bit surprised that the major debut didn?t do better since I think he?s one of the best performers/songwriter out there in this genre.
A little taste for what is to come is featured in this package called ?The green Room Session?, recorded in the living room of his Brooklyn apartment.
Two of the 5 songs will be on the 2007 album, and those are damn good folks but I can tell you, the two openings tracks ?Upstairs? and ?Them? are at least as good and must haves in any Ari Hest collection.
What strikes me is that the sound is so good here. Recorded in an apartment makes at least me thinking of a cheap demo sound. But that isn?t the case here. The sound is sure stripped down with just a few instruments, but it?s so well-produced by Ari that you will forget about it in a second or two. Worth mentioning is that he?s covering Fleetwood Mac?s ?Little Lies? in a slow and moody version. Great cover!
So if you?re fan of this guy like me, this is a very safe buy that won?t disappoint anyone. Good songs performed in an excellent way, can we ask for more?
