--WINNER OF THE 2002 OUTMUSIC AWARD FOR OUSTANDING DEBUT RECORDING (MALE)

As seen in VIBE, W, BLUE, INSTINCT, H/X, NEXT, BILLBOARD, PLAYBILL, GENRE etc.

"Ari Gold is about to hit pay dirt...Gold's repertoire...is steeped in sticky pop melodies, sing-along hooks, and butt-shakin' funk rhythms. His self-made, eponymous disc is rife with accessible material...solid radio-ready material." --Larry Flick, Billboard

"Gold's musicianship is flawless"--Backstage

"Gold pushes the envelope as much as a rapper like Eminem does"--The New York Blade

"He's Divas Live and Men Strikes back and hotter than 98 Degrees!"--Next Magazine

"a smash success...wowing the local music scene!"--Time Out NY

Born in the Bronx and currently a resident of the Lower East Side of New York City, Ari Gold has been performing to standing ovations at some of the hippest and most respected venues in NYC. These hot spots include Fez, Tunnel, Joe's Pub, China Club, Eighty-Eight's, Meow Mix, Life, Barracuda, Bowery Bar, Salon at Flamingo East, Pyramid and Starlight. His overseas gigs include the Jersualem Theatre in Israel and Club Plastic in Milan.

ARI GOLD's self-titled debut is a funky smooth blend of R&B, pop, soul and dance. From the the Peaches and Herb meets Babyface ballad Write Me A Love Song, the garage groove of Give Me All Your Love, to the smooth, sultry sound of See Through Me, all of these songs are sung with his signature soulful stylings. The CD also includes the original mix of the underground dance hit, "Wave Of You." as seen in Boys Shorts 4 now playing at a cosmopolotan area near you.

Gold wrote, arranged and produced these songs with many established producers and musicians in the music business including Gary Hosse who toured with Chaka Khan and played on Maxwell's debut, Nick Morach who has writtenand produced songs on Vanessa Williams' The Sweetest Days, Daryl Hair who has written materialfor Phyllis Hyman's last recording and Steve Skinner who coproduced Bette Midler's From A Distanceand was also nominated for a Grammy for co-producing the soundtrack for Rent.

Except for Just A Little Love, which features a real gospel choir, all the background vocals are arranged
and sung by Gold.

Currently, Ari has been keeping busy collaborating on new material with legendary songwriter/producer Desmond Child who has scored hits for Ricky Martin, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Cher among others. Ari is also the featured vocalist on the forthcoming single from UK sensations DJ Luck and MC Neat. The single "I'm All About You," which Ari co-wrote with Luck, Neat and Desmond Child, is heavily in- fluenced by the garage-two-step movement that is currently all the rage in Europe. "I'm All About You" released on Island Universal debuted in the top 20 on the UK pop charts. The video was heavily played and requested on MTV and The Box. In cunjunction with the single Ari performed on practically every major TV and radio show in the UK including, Live And Kicking (CH. 5), T4 (CH.4), Radio One Big Sunday and Top Of The Pops (BBC).


Ari Gold has been singing professionally since he was six years old. An accomplished child vocalist, Ari was chosen to play the lead character in a CBS Children's Record production of Pot Belly Bear: Songs and Stories - the album sold platinum.
 
For years afterward,just about every time we heard a child's voice on television or radio, it was Ari singing. His many commercials have included: My Buddy, M&M's, McDonalds, Toys R Us, Lays, My Little Pony, Chevrolet, G.I. Joe, Duncan Hines, Burger King, Gatorade, Jell-O Pudding Pops with Bill Cosby, Lite Brite,Transformers and Coca-Cola among others.

Ari's versatility as a jingle singer and voice-over artist led him to play every age, nationality, and even gender; like when he played an eight-year-old Vietnamese girl on the now-cult cartoon series Jem and The Holograms, and a tomboy named "Sybil Sadie" on two Cabbage Patch Kids records written by Harry and Tom Chapin. Ari also sang on the Hands Across America record as well as back-up vocals on Diana Ross' Swept Away.

Aside from his solo career, Ari has lent his songwriting and production skills to other artists. He keeps company with Diane Warren and Stephen Bray as a songwriter for 80's teen-scream Tommy Page's new album. He also wrote and produced the song Home on #1 Billboard Dance recording artist Kevin Aviance's critically hailed album Box of Chocolates on Wave Records. He recently scored a top 10 Billboard dance hit with "I'll Be Here by " by Automgagic featuring Nashom.

Backstage said that "Ari Gold is well on his way to a serious pop career" and Next magazine calls him "the Babyface of the gay scene." He was recently named one of the nine hottest men in NYC by H/X magazine and Genre magazine named Ari one of the "Men We Love" of 2002.

Ari's sophome CD Space Under Sun will be released fall 2003.

Patrick Arena/southern Voice

Young ARI GOLD's first self-titled full length album on the indie label Boogie S
The overall aura is lush with harmonies and rhythmic melody-again we are transported to that pre-dawn bedroom time of sexual afterglow. Using many of the same components as Sade's "Lovers Rock," Gold's production avoids the mechanical pitfalls and comes out sounding more fluid.

Ricardo L. Ortiz @ The Washington Blade

Gold gives boy bands a run for their money with less predictable melodies and ma
...The emotional terrain Gold's songs cover can be mapped at least in part from just the titles: from "See Through Me" to "Write Me a Love Song" to "Just a Little Love," Gold never sacrifices sentiment or hope to detachment, cynicism, or depair. Neither does he settle simply or exclusively for sentiment; by presenting us with situations that extend and complicate the conventions of youthful pop romanticism...These are sweet lovely songs, made more so by the very graceful way they make room in their house for all forms of romantic and passionate love.

Gay, Out and Proud!
I own all three of Ari's main albums and it's interesting to see how his music has progressed over the years. The one thing that remains constant is that Ari has remained true to himself and his fans and is proud to be gay and has not hidden this fact in order to get record deals.

His debut album, Ari Gold, is a good showcase of his vocal talents and his songs have lyrics that actually mean something and tell a story. It's not just a funky beat.

It's got a variety of musical genres and this is what keeps this record fresh after numerous back to back playings.

Digging For Gold: Ari Gold is about to hit pay dirt
Gold's repertoire...is steeped in sticky pop melodies, sing-along hooks, and butt-shakin' funk rhythms. His self-made, eponymous disc is rife with with accessible
material...solid radio-ready material.
