Arielle Silver

Arielle Silver quit her songwriting career a decade ago. After years of tours, she packed away her guitar, moved to Los Angeles, and landed a behind-the-scenes job in the music business.

But love comes when you least expect it. In 2018 Silver fell back in love with songwriting. In 2019, she began performing again, and despite 10 years off, when Silver launched a spring 2019 crowdfunding campaign, she raised over $26k to record a new Indie Folk Americana project: A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES. In advance of the album (slated for 2020), she brings us her first single in over a decade: LONELY TIME OF YEAR.

Produced by Shane Alexander, LONELY TIME OF YEAR (single) and A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES (album) was recorded by Michael Gehring at Secret World Studios in the legendary Sound City complex in Los Angeles, mixed by GRAMMY-winner Brian Yaskulka (Lisa Loeb), and mastered by GRAMMY-winner Hans DeKline (U2). The album features drummer Denny Weston Jr. (KT Tunstall), steel guitars and percussion by Jesse Siebenberg (Lady Gaga, Lukas Nelson and Promise of the Real), piano/organ/bells by Carl Byron (Rita Coolidge), bass by Darby Orr (Naked To The World), and mandolin by Mike Mullins (David Grisman).

Arielle's third album, SOMETHING PRETTY SOMETHING TRUE (2006) was recorded in the blue hours of winter evenings with some of Boston’s best pickers, rockers, and Americana players. Along with her second album, ON THE DASHBOARD OF A SHAKY CAR (2004), both released on independent label Passion Records and co-produced with Passion owner, Chris Florio, her songs were broadcast on AAA, college, and internet radio stations across the US and Canada.   

Featuring what The Boston Globe called, “Lovely songwriting and arrangements,” the lush harmonies on SOMETHING PRETTY and DASHBOARD showcase an array of exceptional musicians, including Adam Ollendorff (Kacey Musgraves, Willie Nelson) on pedal steel, dobro, baritone guitar; celloist/singer Lindsay Mac (Michelle Shocked, Catie Curtis); drummer/percussionist Scott Manley (Mare Wakefield, Moving Picture Show); bassist Mariana Iranzi (Golden Nappa Award); jazz trumpeter, Forbes Graham (Wild May); and violin/violist Andy Eggleston (The Bluegrass Revolution).    

Also an essayist and poet, Arielle’s literary work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize, Best New Poets, and more. She leads yoga retreats in California and beyond.
