Broken Voices – Ari Hest

15 Aug

Ari Hest used to sing commercial jingles that his father wrote. The New York born artist taught himself to play his mother’s guitar and fell in love with music after previously having strong aspirations to become a professional baseball player.

In this song, Broken Voices, Hest’s voice is hypnotic. The song itself revolves around a continuously played guitar part that creates its ambient atmosphere.

Personally, I love Ari Hest’s because he’s very mellow, yet very meaningful, and if you listen to more of his stuff, you’ll find some more beautifully crafted songs.

Check out his official website and MySpace for more.

Now, to finish off, here’s an awesome video of Ari performing the song live at Joe’s Pub:
