The Story

AVATARI is the solo project of musician, actor, and songwriter Ari Welkom. Ari spent several years fronting bands in Los Angeles, touring nationally, and playing major festivals including Outside Lands, Bonnaroo, Life is Beautiful, and SXSW. Many of his songs are also recognizable from their placements on primetime TV shows (Startup, Absentia).

About a year ago Ari decided to hole up in the studio and focus on a sound that would better synthesize his creative expression. What came out was a group of songs that are both anthemic and personal. With epic pop hooks and grooves, and an alt rock edge. Songs about freedom, redemption, and finding light through the darkness.

"Legacy" is AVATARI's debut single.

"AVATARI's clear, masculine vocals run the entire gamut of emotions"
