THE OLD NEW MUSIC OF AMI YARES
Homegrown Mid-Atlantic Americana by Way of the Mediterranean
songwriting & hope-raising
Ami Yares is the offspring of the Jersey suburbs, raised in the echo of the Liberty Bell, only to find his voice on the shores of the Mediterranean. “Yares wields his 12-string guitar as if it were an entire orchestra, backing his vocals with a dense, rich cascade of sound " (David Foster, AXS). Influenced by his American folk music upbringing, Ami's music merges his Jersey roots with wisps of Middle Eastern culture.
