Something Pretty Something True
Recorded downstairs in an old Victorian house on the south side of Boston in the space between rush hour and bedtime over many long months, somethingprettysomethingtrue is Arielle's newest album. Her second release on indie-label Passion records, somethingprettysomethingtrue was produced by Arielle and composer/ arranger Chris Florio. Featuring Arielle's touring band-Scott Manley on drums/ percussion and Mariana Iranzi on bass-- along with a slew of other wonderful players who were somehow bribed into the studio including Lindsay Mac on cello, Andy Eggleston on viola, Hammersing on electric guitar, Adam Ollendorff on pedal steel, dobro and tenor guitar, Forbes Graham on trumpet, and Chris Florio on guitar, keyboards and software. ___ 'Singer/songwriter Silver first seduces with a rich, highly emotional voice. Though her arty, lyrical flair reflects Ani DiFranco, Joni Mitchell and even Jane's Addiction, it's a very personal modern rock approach. On her new, gorgeously produced CD, 'Something Pretty Something True,' Silver even plays clarinet. Dan Gewertz - Boston Herald.
