"Few recent records are as instantly appealing as Ghost Town Directory, or as capable of translating that initial buzz into lasting pleasure." BIG TAKEOVERHeres an up and comer whos got his groove, both literally and figuratively, and even a first listen is all it takes to convince.NO DEPRESSION


Shine has racked up plenty of miles himself through the U.S., U.K. and Canada, opening for artists like Rhett Miller, John Doe, Hugh Cornwell of The Stranglers, Great Lake Swimmers, Mindy Smith, Mike Peters, Liam Finn and many others. Ari was handpicked to support Chris Shiflett of the Foo Fighters on his entire summer 2010 solo tour. Im proud of how much Ive toured over the past few years. The wide range of artists I have played with has really helped me grow as a performer and as a writer. Its a testament to the strength of the songs when you can just strap on a guitar and play to an audience who have come for an entirely different style of music and have them leave as fans.
