Being with Eric was a bootcamp. But I learned a whole lot about things about myself, about the road, music, life...it's a wonderful thing to learn about life via music. It's become one of my greatest teachers, second to maybe only music.
Hey people :)
Have you been following me on my FB?
If not, you can check me out here -
Well, I have found myself a bit tired of Nashville, so I decided to up and leave.
Well, what do you expect? I am an open and honest gypsy, so...I moved.
I also had a brand new photoshoot with tons of new photos I can't wait to show you. You may find them scattered around the site, so keep your eyes peeled.
I have lots of new things I am working on - some are monthly vlogs, as well as many other videos coming up. <3
I am so, so excited to announce that my brand new EP, Interim is finally out! There are 6 songs on it, and somehow before I even finished my pre-sale, I sold out of the first batch. It kind of blew my mind.
This is an EP I've been pushing off for a long while to get out. But it's finally here.
I am Arielle. People compare me to lots of people, but I like to write music from my heart, and see what comes out.
Magick Again - This a song I wrote while sitting at the kitchen table thinking about love. Thinking about life.
You know those moment where you look back at the person you used to be in life? How you interacted with it? How you would believe in anything? I couldn't help but wonder where all my belief in the Magick of Life was. Loving someone allowed me to find it again. It has some celtic flavors, lots of acoustic guitar and all sorts of cool melodies and surprises.
Queen of Hearts - This song is about not wanting to be held down from living the life you want. I felt stuck in a relationship, and didn't know how to go up. How to keep the wonder of life.
Truth - When all you know to do is hide and protect your feelings...this is for you.
Aquamarine - Quite possibly my happiest song to date. It's all about love, and comparing it to the ocean, and whales <3
Story They Make Movies Of - I wrote this about losing the love of my life. Thinking about what it could have been, what it was meant to be..or so I thought.
Invisible - The double edged sword of feeling deeply is that sometimes it get so intense, you'd rather be invisible than to feel at all.
If this is something that excites you, it's in the store as well as iTunes, Spotify, and all those fun places. :)
Always in always,
Sometime last year, a fan put a flyer on my FB profile with the banner that stated Vince Gill was doing a guitar competition. I have never done a musical competition in my life so I was a bit nervous, but I entered. I ended up having all of my fans vote, and they got me into the finals. I was 1 of 5 finalists who got to go to Los Angeles in September and go play some guitar with Vince Gill. I picked the song, 'Pretty Little Adriana' and had a blast doing it.
He was such a sweet person. I didn't end up winning, but I feel like a winner inside. So many good things on the way!!
Heres the video from the incredible night -
So here I am in Austin, Texas. I had an amazing time for the past 5 or 6 days. As you know, this is one of my favorite places in the world. Although I don't know the terrain all that well, I don't own a car here, or anything of that nature, I still find such peace and welcoming when I am here.
The moment I got into Nashville in February, doors began to open up for me almost too fast to be present for it all.
I was visiting my friend from SHURE Microphones, and all of a sudden, a guy, Danny Rowe walked in. He just so happened to be picking up some microphones for the TV show to place as props, and of course, was using SHURE. He told me he does all of the props, etc, and asked if I wanted to come see the filming of the show.
I have traveled all around the world. I have been to many, many of the States in the US, and it is an unusual find when I feel so comfortable and at home in a new place. I fell in love with Austin, Texas.
