My Favorite Axe with Arielle

Singer, songwriter and guitarist Arielle considers the music of classic rock greats Queen, Boston and Iron Maiden the great inspiration of her sound. She mastered singing, piano, trumpet and guitar by the age of 10 and by 16 had become a guitar virtuoso, earning the imprimatur of Queen guitarist Brian May, and eventually working with Nuno Bettencourt, Michael Angelo Batio and Uli Jon Roth (Scorpions) and shredding onstage in CeeLo Green’s band (amongst others). Arielle released her debut single “California” this February and her self-titled EP on Open E Entertainment is out now.
