Title - ‘Sunset Over Hope Street’ (Downtown)
Artist - Ari Hest
Ari Hest has already long-established himself as quite the talented musician. 'Sunset Over Hope Street' just re-emphasizes that ten fold!
Sure this is not the traditional Ari hest sound re: guitar and piano only, but that is exactly what makes all this the more musically exciting.
Indeed, here on his latest album, we get to listen to the xylophone, Irish drums, harmonium, bottles, and even a pencil/pad! Trust me, once you've read the press release on this album you won't be surprised what all comes together to make 'Hope Street' as good as it is!
And the lyrics? Well, you'll be glad to know they tell their stories as before. Containing depth, emotion and meaning, they blend as one with the music. Indeed, this is one great pop/folk/easy listening array of wonderment - and is truly, from start to finish, a great listen.
