Arielle Silver, who Music Connection calls “a born communicator… exudes intelligence and humanity,” is a consummate storyteller whose rich, expressive voice and acoustic guitar frame expansive melodies that echo her tours and travels across the American heartland.
Raised on folk festival fields and synagogue pews in woodsy and watery places up and down the Atlantic Seaboard and now based in Southern California, Arielle lives just a traffic jam away from the Pacific Ocean. After a decade break from performing music to focus on creative writing and Eastern philosophy, her fourth album, A THOUSAND TINY TORCHES (2020), is heard regularly on SoCal tastemaker station 88.5 FM, and was featured in American Songwriter and on PRX’s Up Close And Acoustic.
Her upcoming album, Watershed, is an earthy, luminous, and literate collection of songs about ordinary life’s watershed moments.
“Lovely songwriting”— Boston Globe
“An incredible singer-songwriter right in our backyard.”— Program Director Marc ‘Mookie’ Mazcor, 88.5FM KCSN (Los Angeles)
Arielle currently serves on the Board of Folk Alliance Region West (FAR-West), teaches Creative Writing at Antioch University Los Angeles, produces and host the podcast Tomes & Tunes, and co-owns Bhavana Flow Yoga, where she teaches daily Zoom yoga and leads retreats.
