“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.”
– Brian May (Queen)
“Combing confessional songwriting with some inventive guitar playing, Arielle is an artist worth getting to know.”
