Ari Chi - These Parts

Ari Chi is a singer, songwriter, instrumentalist & producer born in Atlanta and raised in Tampa, FL. 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--unlike the guitar, she could take the ukulele everywhere.

Ari began uploading acoustic covers to YouTube in 2013, and developed her skill by practicing daily. That work paid off when Ari’s cover of “Timmy Turner” went viral and landed her some groove time with Desiigner on MTV’s “Critique My Cover”.

Ari's inspirations include the likes of Ms. Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, and Erykah Badu. However, her eclectic style is genre-bending--mixing folk, soul, r&b, and trap to produce a sound all her own.
