Ari Rivera // leaving flowers out

If you haven’t heard of the name, Ari Rivera, then allow this to be the last time you’re able to say that. I’ve been a follower of this up and comer for the past 3 years and today he’s making it back onto our page for a more than well deserved appearance. I try not to be late to new music, but it happens sometimes…Back in December, Ari Rivera released an EP called “Leaving Flowers Out” and it truly might be one of the best projects I’ve heard in a very very long time.

If you’re a fan of Dijon or Omar Apollo, then Ari Rivera is someone you should check out, but don’t box him into that categorization as he truly does have a unique sound of his own that you will fall in love with. “leaving flowers out” is a 6 song offering that contains some of the best collection of music you’ll hear this week. When I first found Ari, I knew there was immense potential here, but after meditating on this EP, it’s evident that his talent is off the charts from musical sensibility to sheer vocal talents.

I won’t give away too many specifics, but just know that Ari Rivera is a name you need to know! I’ve attached the Spotify link down below to the music, so give it a listen and let us know what you think!
