About Ariel Pink in brief
Ariel Pink is an American musician, singer, and songwriter. He is credited with galvanizing a larger trend involving the evocation of the media, sounds, and outmoded technologies of prior decades. His lo-fi aesthetic and home-recorded albums proved influential to many indie musicians starting in the late 2000s. Pink’s unusual sound prompted a renewed critical discussion of hauntological phenomena, for which he was a central figure. Until 2014, his records were usually credited to Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, a solo project sometimes conflated with his touring band. His fame and recognition escalated following the success of his 2010 album Before Today, his first recorded in a professional studio. Since then, he has recorded three more albums: Mature Themes, Pom Pom, and Dedicated to Bobby Jameson. He has also collaborated with a variety of other artists. He has recorded a cover of a track included in one of the CD that came with the book Madchedelic Punk Pioneers: Psychedelic Geniuses, Lo-Fi Mavericks & More. He lives in Los Angeles with his mother, Linda Rosenberg-Kennett, and his father, Mario Z. Rosenberg, a Harvard-educated gastroenterologist born to a Jewish family in Mexico City, while Linda is from New Orleans. He describes himself as’maladjusted’ and ‘difficult guy to understand, except for the fact that his heart is pure. He said that with music I had no discernible skills, whereas with drawing, they reportedly thought he was \”going to be the next Picasso,’ and I believed them and I got better.
Ariel Rosenberg was first drawn to music through watching MTV. When his interest intensified, he was particularly fond of Michael Jackson, and after entering junior high school, expanded his tastes to metal. Favorites included bands like Def Leppard, Metallica, Anthrax and after that, Bauhaus and the Cure, the latter being his favorite band of all time. He later discovered the band Sara Sara, a band he thought espoused a band espoused something unholy… at the same time at the time he thought it was alive and dead. He lost his virginity at 13, to a prostitute named Sara Sara. He chose to live in Louisiana following his mother’s child custody proceedings in Pico Pico, where he lived with his father for a year. He then returned to the Beverlywood area of Los Angeles where he live with his parents. He now lives in Beverlywood and Bogalusa, California, with his wife and two children. He and his wife have a daughter, Ava, who was born in 1998. He also has a son, Alex, who lives in New York City and has a daughter with his ex-wife, Toni, who is also a singer-songwriter. The couple have two sons, Alex and Alex. They have three grandchildren, who live with their mother and step-father.
