PRESENTER KIT

SHORT BIO (233 words)

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 bookworm religious educator, Arielle was raised on folk festival fields and synagogue pews, in woodsy and watery places up and down the Atlantic Seaboard. She moved to Boston for college, where she studied classical and renaissance woodwinds, and moonlighted as a folksinging busker in Harvard Square.

Now based in Southern California, Arielle lives just a traffic jam away from the Pacific Ocean. After a decade break from performing music 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, the album has been heard regularly on tastemaker station 88.5FM (KCSN Los Angeles), was a New Discovery in American Songwriter, and a 2020 Top 10 Albums in Americana Highways.  

Arielle currently serves as Secretary for Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West) Board of Directors. She teaches Creative Writing at Antioch University Los Angeles and for the International Women's Writing Guild, is producer and host of the podcast Tomes & Tunes, and co-owns Bhavana Flow Yoga, where she teaches daily Zoom yoga and leads retreats with her sweetheart, the composer/songwriter Darby Orr.
