“Arielle Silver is a born communicator... exudes intelligence and humanity.”
— Music Connection
Arielle Silver is a consummate storyteller whose rich, expressive voice and acoustic guitar frame expansive melodies that echo her tours and travels across the American heartland. Raised on folk festival fields and synagogue pews in woodsy and watery places up and down the Atlantic Seaboard, Arielle now lives a traffic jam away from the Pacific Ocean in Southern California, whose mountains, valleys, and waters that were the historical land of the Gabrielino and Tongva Tribes now inspire Arielle's writing.
Returning mid-pandemic after a decade break from performing music to focus on creative writing and Eastern philosophy, Arielle's fourth album, A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES (2020), is heard regularly on SoCal tastemaker station 88.5 FM and other NPR/community stations across the US and UK. She's made recent appearances at Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), Tucson Folk Festival (AZ), San Francisco Folk Festival, Hotel Cafe (Los Angeles), showcased at Folk Alliance Intl (Kansas City) (and FAR-West, FARM, and NERFA conferences), and has been featured in American Songwriter, Americana Highways, Guitar Girl, the podcast Up Close And Acoustic, and more.
Her upcoming album, WATERSHED, is an earthy, luminous, and literate collection of songs that emerged from the quiet of the COVID quarantine, and whose title comes as much from the watershed moment of the times in which the songs were written as it does from the watery theme that runs through many of them. Once again made in Arielle's adopted hometown of Los Angeles with the A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES dream-team of producer Shane Alexander and GRAMMY-winning engineers Brian Yaskulka and Hans DeKline, WATERSHED features many of the stellar musicians who were a part of A Thousand Tiny Torches, and more.
Stay tuned for the release!
