Singer/songwriter Ari Shine released his latest album "Songs of Solomon" with the help of the grassroots community. His latest release was funded by a Pledgemusic campaign supported by fellow musicians like Mindy Smith, White Buffalo, Mike Peters of The Alarm, plus others. Ari also received some collaboration help from Marty Rifkin (Bruce Springsteen, Ryan Adams), who performed steel and lap steel on seven of the album's twelve tracks.
Ari begins the album with the
Bruce Springsteen sounding "Ninety Nine" and "Got A Song Coming
To You." Ari pours some of his political beliefs into these songs as he
pays tribute to the Occupy Wall Street movement. Ari's songwriting stands out
on the acoustic "Pauper's Grave" as you find yourself wrapped around
his words. Ari's sound hits the mainstream mark with the pop sounds of
"Welcome To The Biz," before closing the album with "Wear And
Tear" as Ari's voice, at times, sounds like a young Elvis Costello.
Ari Shine has one live show
scheduled for October 27 at the Knitting Factory in New York, performing
alongside Ryan Cabrera. For more information on Ari Shine's new album "Songs of
