In 2007, Ari Hest left Columbia records and embarked on his “52” project, a web-based subscription service that found him releasing a brand-new song every Monday for an entire year. Because of the experimentation needed to create such a large volume of music, Ari had plenty of creative gas in the tank that helped him not just with his album Sunset Over Hope Street and its most recent follow-up, The Fire Plays, which went on sale November 13th. This Bronx-born artist, whose music can be found on the shows Private Practice and One Tree Hill, tells stories rendered lush by sensual 70s-style arrangements, yet made urgent by Ari’s unmistakeable voice. Dividing her time between Boston and Halifax, Nova Scotia, is touring opener Rose Cousins, who arrives with great tunes and an amazing set of cheekbones.
