Ari Herstand, who has shared the stage with artists such as Ben Folds, Cake, Joshua Radin, Matt Nathanson, Eric Hutchinson and Ron Pope, is best known for his solo, live looping abilities: melding the guitar, keyboard, trumpet, tambourine, vocals and beat boxing seamlessly to create a unique, full band sound. He has had multiple songs featured on TV shows like One Tree Hill and various Showtime, VH1 and MTV shows. He recently appeared on the Ellen Degeneres show with 30 Seconds To Mars. As an actor, you may have seen him on TV shows such as 2 Broke Girls on CBS, The Fosters on ABC Family, Sam & Cat on Nickelodeon and Touch on Fox. With his comedic stage banter mixed in with the multi-instrumental live recording/looping show, an Ari Herstand show is a one of a kind, unforgettable experience.
The Long Fall is the soundtrack to late- nights, longing, and epic drives down the Coast. The sound of both the sun and the shadows, this is Americana/ pop.
Equally drawn to the darkness of David Lynch and the legend of Arthurian Court- stories of the human heart- these are the tales The Long Fall tells.
The Long Fall is the music of Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Amy Rieckelman. The Long Fall's first EP, "Battle Cry" produced by Darren Robinson (Phantom Planet) will be released early 2015.
Nino Arobelidze Creates New Crossroads Between Pop, Jazz, Soul and Damn Good Beat Boxing" writes Hannah Frank of CAU "Nino, a U.S./Georgian musician and vocalist who grew up overseas, represents how dynamic, rhythmic and lyrical exploration created beauty with her new album NOMAD. Smooth jazz fans, R&B hip hop aficionados, EDM troubadours, genuine rock and roll lovers and spoken word listeners all find themselves sitting appreciatively at the altar of NOMAD".
Hailing from Tbilisi-Georgia, Nino Arobelidze moved to Chicago to make music and develop her sound. While still studying classical vocal performance at DePaul University Music School, Nino became the first vocalist to be an Artist in Residence at the North Shore Hotel in Evanston, where she held a weekly lecture/performance series for three years. Her time is currently occupied with her solo project and Forbidden Knowledge (ft. Pablo Gordy & Nino). Nino's 2014 release NOMAD is co-produced by Pablo Gordy- Ni Fu Ni Fa Records.
Nino’s voice is often described as pure and effortless with a timeless vintage twist. While her imaginative phrasing and swagger are reminiscent of a skilled instrumentalist, her treatment of language is driven by the power of words and the magic of subtlety. Nino recently released a new music video- "Passages" in collaboration with Terry Dixon and Studio 2A Films.
