Ari Chi
Ari Chi
Ari Chi is a 24 year old singer, songwriter, instrumentalist & producer currently based in Tampa, Florida. Ari has been cultivating her passion for music since her formal training in high school, and took that to new heights when she decided to pick up the ukulele after a short stint with a guitar. The fact was simple, unlike the guitar, Ari could take the ukulele everywhere. Self-taught through YouTube, Ari began uploading acoustic covers in 2013, and developed her skill by practicing everyday and taking heed to fan critique. That work paid off when Ari’s most notable cover for Desiigner’s “Timmy Turner” landed her some groove time with him on MTV’s “Critique My Cover”. Her eclectic catalog is genre-bending--mixing folk, soul, and r&b to produce a sound that is uniquely hers.
Yaya Bey
Yaya Bey
New York singer-songwriter, visual artist, and art curator Yaya Bey has been described by Pitchfork as an artist who "...makes R&B that is at once grandiose and vulnerable, folding in feminist protest songs, glittering self-love anthems, and devastating accounts of heartache and longing." Bey is both a poet and musician, creating songs to invoke the revolution and convey the human experience. Her debut EP, 'The Many alter-egos of Trill'etta Brown' released in early 2017, was met with critical praise from Solange's Saint Heron, The FADER, Essence, and more. Her new project “this too…” will be released February 16, 2019.
