It’s a warm welcome back to Ashington for Ariel Posen, singer & songwriter, masterful Internationally-renowned guitarist, solo artist and member of the fast-rising and much-lauded Juno Award-winning band, The Bros. Landreth.
Ariel will be performing at the White House Unique Social Club on Monday 18 February, commencing at 7.00pm, with support.
A lifelong musician, there are few roles Ariel hasn't played. Although born in Winnipeg, Ariel spent much of his childhood on the road, traveling from show to show with his musician parents. He began playing guitar at 9 years old, kicking off a career that eventually found him traveling the globe for his own gigs and shows as a member of the roots-rock band The Bros. Landreth. The group built its audience on the road, opening for Bonnie Raitt one minute and performing with John Oates the next. They also won a Juno Award for their debut album "Let it Lie".
Several years after accepting that award, Ariel began working on an album of his own, tracking his new songs in the same studio in which his parents once recorded their albums. “How Long”, scheduled for a January 2019 release, marks Ariel’s long-awaited solo debut, showcasing not only his skills as an instrumentalist, but his talents as a diverse songwriter, too.
The record casts a wide net, moving from rootsy blues to R&B to melodic rock & roll. A co-writer and producer for artists of all genres, Ariel shows the full range of his talents on these 10 tracks, nodding to his influences — including The Beatles, Stevie Ray Vaughan, John Mayer and more — along the way.
"How Long" is not a guitar record, although there's certainly plenty of guitar to be heard here. Instead, it's a song record, filled with hooks, autobiographical lyrics, and Ariel's compelling voice.
Ariel played a phenomenal show in Ashington back in July 2018. We’re thrilled to have him back at The White House as part of the “How Long” tour. We'd love to see you to join us for what will be an outstanding evening of the very best music – a warm welcome awaits!
