Youthful Singer to Highlight Musical Talent at ASU Club Café
Singer/songwriter Ari Hest, who at age 23 has already produced three albums showcasing his vocal and guitar talent as well as his catchy melodies, will perform Wednesday, Jan. 29, on the campus of Angelo State University.
Hest will bring his musical talents to San Angelo during the University Center Program Council's Club Cafe at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the C. J. Davidson Conference Center in the Houston Harte University Center. The performance is open to the public and admission is $1 at the door.
Hest's voice talent, which has been compared to that of James Taylor and Peter Gabriel, has made him a hit on college campuses and at music clubs across the country. Over the last three years he has played more than 200 shows nationally at such venues as The Mint in Los Angeles, Schubas in Chicago, The Point in Philadelphia and Cactus Cafe in Austin.
He recorded his first album, "Incomplete," as a 20-year-old New York University sophomore trying to stretch a $1,000 budget. His second album, "Come Home," was produced in the summer of 2001. "Story after Story," his latest album, is Hest's most mature and inspired collection to date.
Through his albums and his solo performances, Hest is quickly becoming recognized for his deftly crafted melodies, his catchy lyrics and his intelligent folk-pop songs that capture life's great and not-so-great moments.
