Richie Arci was born and raised in New Jersey where he grew up listening to his father sing five part harmonies in different Doo Wop groups.“One of my earliest memories is sitting in a car seat, driving around with my parents and listening to music. One day he (my father) turned down the music in the car, and noticed that I was singing harmony along to the song he was playing. When I was 10 years old I got my first guitar - I taught myself how to play. Soon after that I started writing my own songs, and began educating myself on what it takes to make music.”
It was during high school that he met Rank Frizzo aka " The Mavrik " (Producer) the two formed a quick friendship. “We seemed to have a lot in common, especially a love and passion for music so we clicked right off the bat. Not only did we become best friends, but we developed a musical chemistry together that is hard to explain or deny.” The two have been working together ever since and have been growing, learning, and progressing into the sound they achieve today.
