ARTIST: Arielle

SONG: “California

BIRTHDATE: August 3, 1990

HOMETOWN: Born in Short Hills, NJ but I grew up in San Mateo, CA


AMBITIONS: My ambition is to be the healthiest and “best” me I can be in all areas of my life. I would also like my songs to be heard all over the world and to perform them over the world!

TURN -OFFS:  Dishonesty, ignorance and those who do not speak their mind. .

TURN-ONS: Confidence, talent, being open and being able to see the big picture.

DREAM GIG:  To open for Adele and then of course to have my own world tour!

FAVORITE LYRIC: “In another world, we can show we care, you can be sure I’m waiting there in another world.” Brian May

CRAZIEST PERSON I KNOW:  I think it might be me!

SONG I WISH I WROTE: “Fields Of Gold” by Sting

5 PEOPLE I’D MOST LIKE TO HAVE DINNER WITH: Stine, Jimmy Hendrix, Michael Jackson, Albert Einstein and Martin Luther King.

MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: My favorite concert experience was seeing Tom Petty perform live at the Greek Theater in Berkley, CA when I was fifteen. Stevie Nicks came onstage for “Dont Come Around Here No More,”  and “Stop Dragging My Heart Around ” and it was a stunning, life changing concert that I will never forget!

I WROTE THIS SONG: I wrote the song “California” about the journey that so many people take to come here and make their dreams a reality. The song speaks of my inability to be happy because the passionate dreams that I once had were “chasing me”  and eventually allowed me to become something I wasn’t  just because I thought it was the only way. My intentions were always good, but I still couldn’t find the sunshine in California.
