Welcome!

Ari Koinuma Portrait by Amy ColleenMy name is Ari Koinuma (pronounced ko-ee-noo-ma).  These days my main activities are that of a rock recording artist “Aristotle’s Hope.”

I’ve done many things in music and life but once I gained means to record full production music in my home studio, that’s really what I’m interested in doing the most. I’m finally making the music I always dreamed of making – thoughtful rock music with poetic and vulnerable lyrics. The kind I’ve always turned to for support when I needed a friend.

You can find Aristotle’s Hope at Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple, and most other major streaming services.

Follow me on YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Tik Tok.
