Emerging artist Arin Ray wants you to take a journey with him through his debut EP, Phases.
The Ohio-bred, LA based singer/songwriter gained some national attention on the 2nd season of “The X-Factor,” where he made it to the Top 10, and after leaving the show began a budding career as a writer. Working under the tutelage of The Underdogs and then Yung Berg, Arin has penned records for the likes of Jeremih, Chris Brown, Nicki Minaj, Usher, and Jason Derulo.
Now working with production duo Nez & Rio (Kendrick Lamar, Tinashe), the young creative has drawn from his musical upbringing and inspirations from the likes of Michael Jackson to Coldplay and Pharrell, to craft his genre-blending, boundary pushing EP.
The 6-track project falls under the Alt-R&B umbrella with elements of future soul. Take a listen below.
The project is also available on iTunes, and all digital streaming platforms.
