Arielle Silver is a consummate storyteller whose rich, expressive voice and acoustic guitar frame expansive melodies that echo her many homes, tours, and travels across the American heartland. Her concerts interweave songs and stories with uplifting messages and an ecological ethic of care.
In 2020, Arielle released A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES, which has gotten a boost from radio across the US and UK, including tastemaker station KCSN 88.5FM in Los Angeles. The Boston Globe writes “Lovely songwriting,” and Music Connection calls Arielle "a born communicator... exudes intelligence and humanity." Songs from more than half the album were recognized in major songwriting contests, including International Songwriting Competition (ISC), and featured on NPR podcast Up Close And Acoustic, Americana Highways, American Songwriter, Guitar Girl, and more. Also an essayist and poet, Arielle teaches creative writing and creativity research studies at Antioch University.
After a decade-long spirit journey from the Atlantic seaboard to the Pacific coast to study Eastern philosophy and creative writing, Arielle is back on the road introducing herself to old and new audiences through concerts, workshops, and retreats. Her upcoming album, Watershed (slated for 2023), is a collection of earthy and literate story-songs inspired by watershed moments of ordinary days when the world seemed to go sideways.
Co-owner of the Bhavana Flow Yoga studio, she is also producer/host of the Tomes & Tunes podcast, faculty at Antioch University Los Angeles, and Board Secretary of FAR-West. Her concerts and educational workshops for creative spirits of all kinds are moving experiences that tap the heart through music and stories to connect, inspire, move, and heal.
