"Bluebirds of Paradise give the ever-popular guy/girl duet band a new and unique twist! Amazing!!" -Ari's landlord
"Singer/songwriters Ari Hest and Chrissi Poland create this scintillating duo, an infusion of jazz, indie-folk, and pop steeped in Brazilian rhythms and overtones. With enchanting vocals and romantic yet often comedic lyrical sentiments, this powerful pair draws you in and leaves you wanting more!" -Buddy, Chrissi's supportive cat
"Chrissi and Ari first met on a tour of the UK, where they shared several bills around England and began playing on each other’s songs. About a year and a half later, they debuted the first Bluebirds of Paradise single at the Highline Ballroom in New York City. “Snow” was revealed as an “alt” holiday song, it’s clever lyric and catchy melody struck a chord immediately with their audiences." -Alex Berger, host of above-mentioned tour, who was subjected to Ari and Chrissi's duet-ing constantly for 8 days will touring the UK in a compact car.
