Yet the New Jersey native has lived in California for most of her life, singing since age five (with the prestigious San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula Girls Chorus) and then learning the piano, trumpet and at age 10, guitar. By 16, she’d become a rock-guitar virtuoso (even earning the attention of her childhood idol, Queen guitarist Brian May,) before being “discovered” by guitarist Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme, Rihanna.) Soonafter, Arielle landed in the studio of Red Decibel Music Group (Kelly Clarkson, Demi Lovato and Switchfoot) and met with producer/co-writers Adam Watts, Andy Dodd and Gannin Arnold. Their creative chemistry was so electric that the songs tumbled out on top of one another and the spark of “California” was struck.
Arielle is also vamping up for a special performance at the 17th Annual Triple A Sunset Session in Solana Beach, CA at Belly Up on February 22nd (Sold Out) and recently performed at The Hotel Café and The House of Blues Foundation Room in Los Angeles, CA
