Ari Gold: Space Under Sun

You probably wouldn’t be too far off-base if you called Ari Gold the “poor man’s Justin Timberlake.” It might be a bit more accurate, however, to describe him as the “gay man’s Justin Timberlake.” This young Jewish boy from the Bronx grew up with a taste for R&B and has tethered that to his music in a most unorthodox manner. He seems to pull from the early ’90s school of R&B perfected by those such as Jodeci and Keith Sweat, but also marries that sound with a palette of melodies and arrangements that more so mirror the sound of modern boy bands. In the end, they are love songs about men by a man, and he makes it work regardless from where he’s borrowing. From Gold 18 ( —Lance Walker
