Arielle Silver with Halley Neal
California-based singer-songwriter Arielle Silver is a nationally touring performer, teaching artist, and “masterful storyteller” (New Releases Now), whose songs are rich with imagery, empathy, and insight. Conceived in the quiet of the pandemic quarantine, her newest album Watershed takes its title from that watershed moment and the woodsy and watery places where the story-songs are set. Featured on The Bluegrass Situation, Americana UK, and American Songwriter, Twangville calls Watershed, “a mix of sophisticated, reflective songs,” NY Times bestselling author Cheryl Strayed called it “Beautiful,” and Music Connection writes, “Superb stage presence… an excellent songwriter… a born communicator… exudes intelligence and humanity.”

Halley has been blazing the folk trail over the last 2 years, performing at festivals like: Kerrville Folk Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Mountain Folks Fest, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and more. Halley released her most recent record “Beautiful and Blue” to critical acclaim on September 30th, 2022. Her sound blends effortless layered vocals with Americana production, and her live shows center on themes of positivity and peace. Currently, Halley tours nationally to house concerts, listening rooms and folk festivals across the country.
