Ari was born in Atlanta, GA and currently lives in St. Pete, FL. She was singing before she could talk and became fascinated with writing stories and lyrics then turning them to melodies. She studied classical music from sixth to twelfth grade in three different performing art programs. Singing had always been what she wanted to do, but in 2010 when she was given the ukulele she had hinted at for christmas, singing became so much more exiting. She taught herself and she’s still progressing every day and though she still doesn’t consider herself a “ukulele player”, some are amazed by the way that she performs with it in hand. It never leaves her side and usually if someone asks her to play she breaks right out in song. She’s very passionate about making her music in general, but live performances are what gets her adrenaline and energy pumping the most.
