Wayne, Pennsylvania’s Ari Leff is the main man behind Somersault Sunday, an electro-infused pop rock solo-project. Being only 16 years old, Ari is way ahead of the game; having already released 3 EP’s (the latest – “Phone Calls & Weekends”), played countless shows locally and regionally, and been on tour, there is no sign that he’ll be stopping anytime soon.
Ari’s latest release, “Phone Calls & Weekends” was produced by Kevin Gates of Engaged Audio (Never Shout Never, The Ready Set, Cady Groves). With extremely catchy hooks, compelling beats, and hard-hitting choruses, the EP is sure to win the hearts and attention of many new fans across the country.
Using anything from an acoustic guitar to crazy synthesizers, and everything in between, Ari tries not to limit his musical creativity to just one pin-pointed style. In a world where bands release the same song 5 times, he aims to bring something fresh to the table with each and every release. While some songs feature an honest, organic sound, others pump beats so compelling that you can’t help but get your groove on (go ahead, no one’s watching).
Whether he’s writing music, playing shows, doing web-chats, or filming video updates, Ari’s always thinking of his fans. It’s not just about his love of music, but also about connecting with the people that make it all possible: you. In addition, Ari has true perseverance and work ethic, two things that are hard to come across in today’s industry, setting him apart from the rest.
Somersault Sunday is certainly an artist to keep your eyes and ears on; big things are in store for 2011.
