Growing up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Ori, spent more time figuring out how to dribble a basketball than he did idolizing his current musical heroes. That all changed when he began high school and discovered that there was a whole world of pop and R&B music out there. Feeling inspired and finding his passion, Ori bought his first keyboard and microphone and taught himself how to produce, write, and sing on demos for himself.
Having only moved into a humble NYC East Village apartment a year ago, Ori, started to work with producers and writers all over the Tri-State area. After a few months after his initial move, he received BMI’s 2019 Abe Olman scholarship and was flown out to LA to be featured on an episode of NBC’s Songland.
