Ari Hest

  • The Rubin Museum of Art 150 West 17th Street New York, NY, 10011 United States (map)

Mesmerizing guitar licks and smoky vocals; beautiful melodic folk. He can sound vulnerable, formidable, angry and hopeful, all with an honesty and passion you simply don’t hear from most singers these days. “A prolific songwriter and a captivating live performer.” — Boston Globe. His new album The Fire Plays fuse the sounds of 70’s pop era music akin to Gordon Lightfoot and James Taylor with the sprawling electric guitar soundscapes you’d hear from artist/producers like Ry Cooder and Daniel Lanois. At the forefront is Ari’s rugged yet subdued voice which one-time Hest producer Alex Wong described as, “a bear eating honey.”
