The world gets to know Tarias and the Sound


Don't Fall Asleep Review

July 29, 2022

Tarias and The Sound came riding into town today with a new single “Don’t Fall Asleep” and it’s simply the best one yet. I listen to a lot of really good music and entertain countless independent musicians. The hard truth is that there are very few worthy of the title of GOOD MUSIC. Yet TTS has proved time and again why he is not only worthy, but deserving of praise.

"Rediscover Good Music on Cities of Sound!
In this episode I talk with Tony, the founder and brains behind the Minneapolis music force Arias. He was kind enough to play us some live tunes in studio, which you don't want to miss. From his first recording at age 11 to his most recent production from 2020, Tony brings us into his world of groovy symphony. We discuss his process, heartbreak, redemption, music production, our love of songwriting, and so much more. 
Catch "Back When Green Was My Favorite Color" at the start of our show and "Don't Hesitate" at the close. 
Subscribe to our channel for the best undiscovered good music cities around the country have to offer, and make sure to show our guests some love."

Loring Collective Reviews Disillusioned

September 19, 2020

"Overall, The Arias produced an undeniably noteworthy album with a clear progression of growing individually while falling in love, falling out of it, and finding it again despite attempts and logical reasons not to. The band should be proud of the content, production, and obvious effort that went into this record. Fantastic job!"

The Arias blend genres for a nostalgic debut album

December 9, 2019

"When Tony Arias played a new song in front of his family, they sat in his basement and were absolutely moved. Arias had only been working on the song for about a day. He’d been at work programming the new track when his dad first came down to listen. 
“I turned it up on the speakers and played it,” Arias said. “I called my mom and my sister downstairs, and everyone just sat and listened to this song. It was a very touching moment.”

Ricky Lagoon Croons His Tunes

April 29. 2019

"While Ricky Lagoon will not be accompanied by a full band, McCarthy’s music director Tony Arias put together a rhythm section and four horns to achieve a similar sound.
“A lot of what I’ve been doing is changing these big band arrangements to shape this much smaller jazz combo sound,” Arias said. “We still get the same vibe and orchestration across.”
The rehearsals thus far have been focused on the musical aspect of the show. Arias and Colby Hansen, the assistant music director, have been working to arrange each song to fit the band they have brought together. 
Songs like Wayne Newton’s version of “Falling in Love With Love” and “Wives and Lovers” by Jack Jones transport the audience back to the ‘60s."
