Welcome. My name is Ari McKay, I am a Musician, Songwriter, Actor, and all around Philanthropist. Music has always been a big part of my life but I originally thought I'd end up going into musical theatre. When I moved to New York I started playing in the subway and all of the sudden music become less a hobby and more of a lifestyle. I now consider myself a fulltime musician whether I'm playing in the subway, playing gigs or collaborating with fellow musicians. I could not have asked for a better gift than to be able to do what I love as often as I get to do. I hope you all enjoy my music, videos and other content strewn around my pages. Thanks for listening.
