Ariel Lask
Ariel Lask
A gifted artist embodied by a sultry voice that dances with a rock edge, NYC-based artist Ariel Lask is breaking sonic stereotypes with her seductive blend of folk, rock and soul. Lyrics saturated with honesty allow both her passion and innocence to flow freely, inviting you to experience this singer-songwriter’s world through her own eyes. Born and raised in Monroe, NY, Ariel began playing music at the age of 15 and by 18, she received her first taste of the NYC music scene at the Singer/Songwriter Sessions. In 2008, Ariel moved to London to continue her education while working and recording with Mi7 records, playing venues like the Paradise London. She returned to New York in 2009, focusing solely on her music career and hitting the stage at New York staples like Rockwood Music Hall, The Living Room, The Knitting Factory, Pete’s Candy Store, Canal Room and Pianos. She’s supported rising NYC acts such as Rachel Platten and Nick Howard, and released her first album, Great Escape, in 2010. A passion for helping those less fortunate led Ariel to volunteer with Musicians On Call and hosting a number of benefit concerts in the New York area, a staple aspect of her music career that will continually remain present.

This honest and soulful artist embraces the grittier parts of life in her musical journey, creating addictive songs that are well-constructed, unique and most importantly, real. Her latest EP, The Head, The Skin, The Heart, The Bones, produced by Tomek Miernkowski and featuring the musical talents of Andrea Longato, Mason Ingram and Matt Basile, was successfully funded by a Kickstarter Campaign in Spring 2013. A tour is currently being planned for this coming fall, immediately following the New York release of the EP.
