The attention surrounding Arif (former Phil T. Rich) really began after the debut – “Kom, så, tok færdiih”. With his unique vocabulary and performance of the Norwegian language, the uncompromising release is both playful and innovative for it’s genre. It was released by B.A.W.S Entertainment, which is the creative collective Arif founded in 2009.
With the impressive live shows and a “B.A.W.S”-band the highly acclaimed EP paved the way to a record deal in the beginning of 2013.
Shortly after the launch of the EP, Arif was named “Ukas Urørt”, where he subsequently won the country’s most prestigious music contest for upcoming artists; Årets Urørt.
After the award and shows at By:Larm, Arif was referred to as “a new star” by the biggest media channels in Norway (VG, P3, Dagsavisen, Dagbladet, Aftenposten).
With this, and many other Merritt’s such as National Cypher, his own t-shirt collection with Varnergruppen and the collective B.A.W.S, playing the Hove Festival, Pop-salongen at P3, support act for international artists, TV-visit at Ettermiddagen, radio reviews, guest roles in the TV show “Helt Perfekt” with Thomas Giertsen and TV2’s program “Norge”, the ambitious artists precense is sought in the Norwegian entertainment business.
