ARI is a singer-songwriter¬†from Toronto currently living in Los Angeles. ARI’s motto is to turn pain into power using art to do so.¬† Musically, the songstress deftly dances in and out of genre lines, moving from entrancing alternative pop to gritty hip-hop under a cover of electronic elegance. At the same time, the visceral lyrics transmit messages of hope as often as they ponder tragedy. Her sound comes to life in the middle.
