Artist Bio

Ari Rhodes is a prolific songwriter and a highly versatile musician and producer. Originally from Rhodes, Greece, Ari began his career at the age of 14 as a DJ before moving into production and writing.

Since signing with Cymba Music Publishing in 2015, Ari has worked with a wide variety of artists and songwriters. Co-writers include Ryan O’Shaughnessy (The Voice, Britain’s Got Talent), Michelle Treacy (Sony Music, Canada), Katy Carswell (Universal Music, Canada), Jessica Chase (Wax Records), Sam Drysdale & Kayla Diamond (Slaight Music) Jasmine Denham (Serena Ryder) and up and coming singer/songwriter Nuela Charles.

Along with his songwriting partner Dan Davidson, Ari formed Hands Up! Music, one of Canada’s most prolific and successful production houses and independent record labels. Recent Hands Up! cuts include multiple singles with Edmonton’s Bryan Finlay including “Bulletproof”, “Good Times” and “Rich”; as well as work with singer/songwriter Lexi Strate, co-writing and producing her singles “Chances”, “Antitode” and most recently “Diamond Eyes”.

Their artists have been featured in Entertainment Weekly, and Hands Up! artist Bryan Finlay’s single “Ain’t Gonna Lie No More” (co-written and produced by Ari) was the highest charting indie song in Canada in May of 2015. Ari is also currently developing several new Canadian artists, including country songwriter and performer Julia Nicholson as well as Edmonton based singer/songwriter Jasmine Singh.

Recent cuts for Ari include the track “Love Locked” co-written with fellow Cymba writer Shawn Zhang and recorded by Zhang Bolin, the winner of “The Voice” in China and a telenovela placement of his song “Driving Me Crazy” with Cymba colleague, Ian Smith.
