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. The daughter of a guitar-strumming architect and a Jewish scholar, Arielle was raised at folk festival fields and in synagogue pews along both sides of the East Coast IHOP/Waffle House line.
Now living in California, after a decade break from performing to focus on creative writing and Eastern philosophy, her fourth album, A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES (2020), is luminous, literate, and alive, with songs that crosscut exacting details of the seismic heartbreaks of ordinary life. Recognized in numerous songwriting contests, including ISC, Silver has been heard on tastemaker station 88.5FM (Los Angeles), and in American Songwriter, Americana Highways, and more.
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.
