I had the privilege of talking with Blake Zolfo and Yael Rizowy on Slotted Spoon Radio on October 31, 2013, and you can listen to the interview on BlogTalkRadio using the link below!!
"Opening for Chris was multi-talented newcomer Ariel Strasser. Ariel, a singer and songwriter hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota had the opportunity to grow up in a musical family. Her love of music extended to become her focus at Boston Conservatory where she concentrated on musical songwriting. Her talent in songwriting was apparent immediately as she began to belt out songs soon to be released on her new album Crooked Line. This petite young lady with such a strong voice and melodic sound, blew the audience away. She is one artist to keep tabs as on, as her career unfolds."
I've been honored and thrilled to work with Chris Trapper of the PushStars, opening for him on a number of tour dates this year, including Buffalo, Rochester, and Syracuse, New York as well as Minneapolis, my hometown! I am so thrilled that Chris was able to to sing on my album Crooked Line and he is featured on two tracks, 'Kisses Like Yours' and 'Bittersweet'. Please check out Chris' new album and music videos, he is a great entertainer and songwriter!!!
This June (2013) I had the privilege of having three songs performed by the wonderful Cabaret Series of Boston! "Never Far from Home" premiered at Central Square Theater and featured "Who Needs a Lover" (from Crooked Line), "Home", and "Today". Boston Globe called it" An enchanting evening of cabaret... a delightful summer treat!". Title song by Michael Wartofsky and script by Broadway playwright Lydia Diamond.
