Triple Threat Singer, Songwriter and Guitarist
Arielle is considered a music industry triple threat because she could enjoy an impressive career solely as a singer, songwriter or guitar player, but she has combined all three of those gifts to create a unique artistry that defies genres and borders.
She recently opened for Gregg Allman and traveled to Los Angeles in late September as the lone female and only Nashvillian to compete in Guitar Center’s Onstage with Vince Gill contest. A New Jersey native who was raised in California, she has already made the cover of Guitar Player magazine and released the single “California,” which reached No. 3 on CMT Pure. She was also cast as a guitar player in the TV show Nashville. She is gaining comparisons to Karen Carpenter and Eva Cassidy for her pure voice with a four-octave range.
Queen’s Brian May created a guitar role specifically for her in the West End musical We Will Rock You. Arielle was also asked to be Alice Coopers’ lead guitar player, an honor which she had to turn down.
She has worked with musicians such as Nuno Bettencourt, Michael Angelo Batio, Uli Jon Roth of Scorpions, and Brian May, the lead guitarist of Queen. In 2011, she was a guitarist for Cee Lo Green at Coachella, after which she was signed to Open E entertainment. That same year, she was featured on the cover of Guitar Player Magazine’s online magazine Guts & Glitter.
That small body holds an amazingly big heart and amazingly mature passion. Her musicianship is a clear indication she has been here before! Pass her by at your peril.
