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.
Jill’s magical connection to her audience is the result of her generous artistry. By combining her gifts as a conceptual visionary with a warm gathering of musical influences, Jill touches that secret heart of ours with her melodies and lyrics. In her hometown of Detroit, Jill needs no further explanation. She’s been lauded in equal measure to her talents: Since 1997 she’s won dozens of Detroit Music Awards in every conceivable category that applies to a singer-songwriter. Jill extends the tradition of the confessional (i.e. achingly open, unafraid of intimacy) singer-songwriter, and is proud of that style and its continuation. You get all of Jill Jack in a performance—her blend of folk and rock traditions, her open humor. Jill keeps little of her process away from her audience; each show is about opening a window and shining a light into her songwriting, leading inevitably to the intense relationship with her fans.
