Ari Gold - An Exclusive Interview

Ari Gold Has a CD release party at Joe's Pub on September 4thOn Tuesday, I had the pleasure of speaking with R&B/Dance artist Ari Gold. He has a new CD, Transport Systems, coming out next month. He is holding a CD release party at Joe's Pub on September 4th.

The first single from Transport Systems, Where the Music Takes You, is streaming on Ari's MySpace page. This is an incredibly catchy tune which features Sasha Allen on backing vocals. When I spoke to Ari, we found that we have a mutual love and respect for the work of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and you can hear some of this influence in the new single. Taking this influence one step further, Ari covers the Jam/Lewis penned track (released by the Human League in the 80's) "Human" on the new release.

The CD release party on the 4th should be a lot of fun. Special guests are planned and tickets are only $18 in advance and $20 at the door.

Here is a direct link to an MP3 of the interview I did with Ari and here is a link to the RSS feed.
