Ari Herstand - 'Like Home' Record Release and Music Video Premiere
Ari Herstand wears many hats atop his fro. Since dropping his previous album in 2014, he’s released two editions of his best-selling book How To Make It in the New Music Business, appeared on various TV shows as an actor like Transparent, Mad Men and 2 Broke Girls, toured the world as a speaker, launched Ari’s Take Academy online music business school, a throw-back 1970s inspired funk project Brassroots District, ran the pandemic-inspired Uncancelled Music Festival, got a law passed in California (musician amendment to AB5), launched the New Music Business podcast. And went through a breakup from an 11 year relationship. The latter being the most influential to his life and career. Ari’s new album ‘Like Home,’ out April 9th, depicts the transformative time after his former relationship ended in a way that is both autobiographical and universally relatable. The six-song project, pared down from 40 raw demos, questions the concept of “home” and where it can be found when stable foundations have been destroyed
