Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ari Hest is an American singer-songwriter and a native of Riverdale in the Bronx borough of New York. Ari took piano lessons as a child and later, as a teenager, taught himself to play his mother's nylon string guitar by ear with influences from both his parents' record collection and radio artists. Artists cited as influences are Paul Simon, The Beatles, Dave Matthews, U2, Smashing Pumpkins, Tears for Fears, The Police, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam among others. As a child, Ari aspired to become a professional baseball player and continued to play through the end of high school. During Ari's childhood, his father wrote jingles for toy commercials on television for which he sometimes recruited Ari to sing. One jingle noted by Ari as an example was a commercial for a girl's toy puppy from Hasbro branded "Sweetie Pups." Although he did not win, Ari competed in a Battle of the Bands contest in 11th grade playing Pearl Jam's "Nothing Man" and Led Zeppelin's "Thank You" with another young musician.show more
