Hi! Ari Hest has been performing for a few years now. He plays usually acoustic music and he's a great singer with a mellow voice, not unlike Jason Mraz. Though based in New York, he has gradually developed a fanbase elsewhere (Chicago, Boston, SF). He has released 3 CDs, check out his site: www.arihest.com A friend of mine gave me a copy of his latest, Story After Story and I just loved it!!!
