The Urban Influencer's own, producer Garrett Lodge - "Flavor" ft. John Gibson @garrettlodge
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.
