The River Club Music Hall 78 Border St.,Scituate,Ma. is proud to bring to its stage Chrissi Poland, Ari Hest & Mike Errico on Thursday July 26 at 8 pm.
Enchanting vocalist and songwriter, Chrissi Poland weaves together the sounds of soul, jazz and pop, creating her unique and captivating tone. Drawing comparisons to Carole King and Joan Osborne, her songs have appeared on the HBO, ABC and NBC networks. A multi-instrumentalist, Chrissi has worked and performed with an array of artists, jazz greats, and icons including Lady Gaga, Bette Midler, Nile Rodgers, Macy Gray, Sting, Moby, Scissor Sisters, Smokey Robinson and Kenny Loggins. She has recently released her fourth studio album entitled Waking Hour, as well as the second EP by Bluebirds of Paradise, her Brazilian-inpsired project with songwriter Ari Hest. In a recent review of the new album, John Barry of The Poughkeepsie Journal writes: “She crafts original tunes that harness soul; rhythm and blues; and rock. And she wraps it all up in reflective lyrics that give the music thrust and momentum, without sacrificing any tenderness.
Ari released two independent albums and built a loyal following touring the U.S. college circuit extensively between 2000 and 2003. He then released two albums on Columbia Records, Someone To Tell(2004) and The Break-In(2007) all the while touring both in the U.S. and abroad with the likes of Martin Sexton, Suzanne Vega, and Ani Difranco.
In 2008, Ari wrote, recorded and released a new song every Monday in his 52 project, and released Twelve Mondays in 2009, a collection of re-mixed fan favorites from 52. From 2010-2016, Ari continued to tour relentlessly and released four other LP’s: Sunset Over Hope Street(2011), The Fire Plays(2012), Shouts And Whispers(2015), and the grammy nominated Silver Skies Blue(2016), a duets album with Judy Collins. Ari released his ninth LP, Natural, in the spring of 2017. He is also half of the Bossa Nova inspired band Bluebirds of Paradise, a collaboration with Chrissi Poland.
Many of Ari’s songs have appeared on TV and film – The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill to name a few.
New York-based recording artist, writer, and lecturing professor Mike Errico has built his name on the strength of critically acclaimed releases and extensive composition for film and TV. Live, Errico has played major music festivals and shared stages with artists including Raul Midon, Ari Hest, Jonny Lang, Soulive, Bob Weir, Amos Lee, Ben Folds, Dan Wilson, Derek Trucks, Duncan Sheik, and many others. He teaches songwriting, from both the art and business perspectives, at Yale, Wesleyan, and NYU’s Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music, and tours as a lecturer at colleges, high schools, and conferences across the country. His opinions and insights have appeared in publications including The New York Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, The UK Independent, and The Observer. His latest album, Minor Fits, was released in 2017.
