Who else but hosts Wendy Stuart and Tym Moss could “spill the tea” on their weekly show “If These Walls Could Talk” live from Pangea Restaurant on the Lower Eastside of NYC, with their unique style of honest, and emotional interviews, sharing the fascinating backstory of celebrities, entertainers, recording artists, writers and artists and bringing their audience along for a fantastic ride.
Aris Ziagos will be a featured guest on “If These Walls Could Talk” with hosts Wendy Stuart and Tym Moss on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2022 at 2 PM ET live from the infamous Pangea Restaurant.
Wendy Stuart is an author, celebrity interviewer, model, filmmaker and hosts “Pandemic Cooking With Wendy,” a popular YouTube comedic cooking show born in the era of Covid-19, and TriVersity Talk, a weekly web series with featured guests discussing their lives, activism and pressing issues in the LGBTQ Community.
Tym Moss is a popular NYC singer, actor, and radio/tv host who recently starred in the hit indie film “JUNK” to critical acclaim.
Brooklyn native singer-songwriter Aris explores love, loss, heartbreak and healing on his new album “Through The Storms” . Both broad in style and still interconnected with the mix of its deeply personal solo work and collection of collaborations, the music is lush, emotional, intimate, tender, and soaring.
The opening track “Become Love” features soul singer Coby Koehl and the infectious refrain “Love become a mountain and a mountain become love”. It bounces effortlessly with a rhythmic piano line, claps and swampy blues guitars. Instinct Magazine & HuffPost Entertainment contributor Michael Cook describes Aris as “… a unique and sublimely in touch artist. Hauntingly ethereal. Aris reveals deep emotional power and grit… raw and yearning vocals pairing wonderfully with the throbbing beats throughout… “and notes “teaming up with the always eclectic Coby Koehl was a stroke of genius” .
With his hands across all facets of songwriting & production, Aris takes the listener deeply into his world – revealing, refreshingly vulnerable, heartfelt and uplifting. Aris delivers a collection of powerful rock anthems & equally memorable ballads on “Through The Storms”. There is a universal message that can be found through every sonic thread. The tracks flow seamlessly through related genres – rock, soul, and country. The journey from New York to Nashville reflects in the collaborations with Aaron Lee Tasjan (on “Forsaken”) and Jeneen Terrana (on “Freedom”). Both Tasjan and Terrana began their musical journeys in New York City and found their wings in Nashville. “Forsaken” is part of the album’s final arch, inspired by the stages of grief.
The collection reaches its emotional core with “Forever and a Day” featuring trailblazing LGBT recording artist & activist Ari Gold, who passed away in early 2021 during the recording of the album. Themes of grieving & healing play out delicately, pulling at every heartstring on both the aforementioned track as well as on ”Missing” featuring Vincent DiGeronimo . Aris and Vincent wrote the song about their parent who both passed in the years prior. With the emotions palpable in every line in these songs, there is both a rawness and honesty that disarm and inspire the listener to process their own griefs and take steps toward their healing. The album ends with a reprise of “Love”, Aris’ 2019 collaboration with Grammy award winner Paula Cole. The stripped down instrumentation closes the album on a hopeful note, completing a journey through songs about love, loss, healing and finding the light again.
The album’s themes are further explored in the podcast & video series also named “Through The Storms”, which finds Aris chatting with collaborators and friends about personal stories regarding all the aforementioned themes. The series provides perhaps the most vulnerable notes from the album with uplifting stories that dive deep into emotional empowerment.
Aris and his music have been featured in fashion campaigns for Project Runway winner Irina Shabayeva and on dance floors at venues such as the Webster Hall, the Bitter End and Santos Party House. Jim Fusilli of The Wall Street Journal describes Aris’ music as “rock with big lyrical themes” and offers comparisons to singer Peter Gabriel. While Aris has also drawn comparisons to Kurt Cobain, Chris Cornell and U2, his sound is definitely unique. “Clubland’s newest rocker combines a punk sensibility with electronic dance to create a unique grunge house sound all his own.” writes Nashville’s “Inside OUT”.
