Ariel Blum (Writer /Producer/Multi-Instrumentalist)
Ariel Blum is a Melbourne based writer/producer whose list of credits seems to be growing by the week.
Having cut his teeth as guitarist/band leader of Melbourne 9-piece soul band Pablo Discobar for eight years, Blum naturally gravitated towards studio production and composition, with a hunger to immerse in as many forms of music as he could. This sense of exploration and curiosity took Blum to Granada, Spain, where he lived for two years studying flamenco guitar and regularly taking short visits to London to work on a number of writing projects.
Over the past three years, Blum’s production and writing skills have been in high demand. Recent credits include producing records for Telescopes, The Fabric, One Giant Thing, Aya-Rosa, Blashki, Sarah Rzek, Eeda, Daughter of Dynamite, as well as co-writing credits for Cash For Gold and Straythread, the latter having recently been nominated in the Independent Music Awards Folk category. He has also leant his unique sound to remixes for Owl Eyes and The Temper Trap.
Blum’s composition work has featured in numerous TVC and short films for a range of creative agencies including C-Kol, Clemenger BBDO, Cummins and Ross, Aquarius Films, Elevator Productions, Kojo, Trump Models (NYC) Manikin and am:lab.
