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.

The “Arielle” Guitar – Two Tone (2007)▼ Article continues below ▼
WHAT IT MEANS TO YOU
I have actually tailored my performance around the “Arielle” guitar and I would say that it is my most prized possession and my best friend.
WHAT IT SOUNDS LIKE
My guitar sounds like Brian May on steroids!!
The custom “Arielle” guitar model includes Seymour Duncan pickups with crystals in them.
My friend Patrick Yates and I built it from the ground up. We drew out the design, cut and picked the wood and even mixed the paint!
CAN BE HEARD ON
