Ari Hest (The Whispering Tree opens)
ABOUT ARI HEST
I've been making music and touring the planet for about 15 years. What started out as an occasional creative outlet is now my way of life.
Growing up just outside New York City, I began playing guitar in the hallways of my high school, learning the songs of The Beatles, Peter Gabriel, Smashing Pumpkins, and Dave Matthews Band. I graduated, went to college for a communications degree, and finished feeling way more inclined to make music than anything else, so I hit the road. In these past 15 years, I've played in every state in the U.S. and toured extensively throughout Europe. I've had the honor of playing with a slew of incredible musicians wherever I've gone.
I just released my ninth LP, Natural, and I've also released three solo EPs as well as a song-a-week project of 2008 called "52". I also am in three bands that have recorded albums over the past few years -The Open Sea with Rosi Golan, Bluebirds of Paradise with Chrissi Poland, and most recently a duets album with Judy Collins called Silver Skies Blue, which was nominated for a Grammy award for "Best Folk Album" of 2017.
Sometimes my music is heard on TV or in movies - The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill to name a few. I also scored music for a film called Dreamriders , a documentary which won several independent film awards.
I feel extremely fortunate to be able to sing and play music for a living. I wanna keep it going for as long as possible. It's good for my soul, and I love knowing that what i create can have a real impact on people.
About The Whispering Tree
At the heart of The Whispering Tree are singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. With their deep-reaching sound, haunting vocals and vivid lyrics, this Franco/American duo have been captivating audiences around the world since meeting at music school in London.
Their eponymous debut EP and subsequent full-length album, Go Call The Captain were heavily influenced by their travels abroad, which have taken them from their home base in New York to South America to a seven-month gig in Macau (China). Go Call The Captain was named "one of the year's most luminous albums" by The Big Takeover Magazine, and NYC's The Deli magazine called The Whispering Tree "one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC."
After relocating to the Hudson River Valley, The Whispering Tree released their follow-up EP, The Escape and were honored to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's, A More Perfect Union. While working on new material for their fourth release (due early 2018) The Whispering Tree have released several singles re-imagining classic rock tunes as plaintive, harmony driven folk songs and have returned to Europe for tours in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and France.
