Two of the industry’s most prolific singer-songwriters are coming together for one special night of music at The Vault on Saturday, January 25. New Jersey’s own Matt Portella will join Grammy®-Nominated Artist Ari Hest for an exclusive co-headline bill that will include all of the hits from each of their long and storied careers.
Portella will kick off the show at 8 PM with a set that includes songs from his latest album Fractured Image, which he worked with Bassist Fran Smith, Jr. from International Music Stars The Hooters and Producer Andy Kravitz (Juliana Hatfield, Life of Agony) to record. Receiving critical acclaim for its “unique guitar breakdowns and clear, heartfelt vocals” (Popbreak), the release featured such stand out tracks as “Breathe On,” “Three Everyday” and “Waiting For The Weekend,” Portella will also be unveiling new material during his performance.
Following Portella’s set, Hest will take the stage to play songs from his nine-album repertoire including his latest release Natural. Renowned for his distinctive voice and beautiful melodies, Hest has toured relentlessly for nearly 20 years, sharing the stage with such music stalwarts as Martin Sexton, Suzanne Vega, Ani Difranco and Judy Collins. In 2016, he and Collins recorded a duets album entitled Silver Skies Blue, which was nominated for a Grammy Award. Hest is also half of the Bossa Nova inspired band Bluebirds of Paradise, a collaboration with Chrissi Poland and many of his songs have appeared on TV and film including The Path, The Lincoln Lawyer, Private Practice, Army Wives, and One Tree Hill to name a few.
