Ari Hest: Lighting The Flame

New York native Ari Hest will be returning to the Empire State in support of the release of his newest album, The Fire Plays. As it appears many artists do nowadays, Ari Hest spent his summer performing in Europe, garnering a lot of media attention there. The Fire Plays, which he composed and produced with the help of fellow New Yorker Gerry Leonard, fuses his soothing, raspy vocals, with the light tempo of the acoustic genre in which he excels. The 92Y Tribeca will welcome Hest on Dec. 7.
