Ari Shine is quickly becoming the singer/songwriter to watch in 2011. He plays rootsy rock with an eye for lyrical detail and an ear for classic pop song-craft. The heartfelt melodies and unfiltered lyrics he delivers retain the same unabashed hooks and energy whether in solo acoustic performance or with full band backing. After a number of critically acclaimed releases which earned him praise in such sources as the Village Voice, The Los Angeles Times and even from legendary Rolling Stones producer Andrew Loog Oldham, Ari has arrived with his most personal and versatile batch of tunes.
Shine has racked up plenty of miles through the U.S., U.K. and Canada, opening for artists like Rhett Miller, John Doe, Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers, Redd Kross, Silversun Pickups, The Donnas, Liam Finn and many others. Most recently Ari was handpicked to support Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters on his entire summer 2010 solo tour. “I’m proud of how much I’ve toured over the past few years. The wide range of artists I have played with has really helped me grow as a performer and as a writer. It’s a testament to the strength of the songs when you can just strap on a guitar and play to an audience who have come for an entirely different style of music and have them leave as fans.”
