Special Guest “Arielle”
Born in the US, but a self-proclaimed wanderer, Arielle began studying music at the age of five. A child prodigy, she attained a degree from Musician’s Institute in Los Angeles, and continued her education at London’s Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.
Discovered in 2010 by Extreme’s guitarist Nuno Bettencourt, she signed with an American indie record label called ‘Open E’. In the years that followed, she made a name for herself touring throughout North America and the UK, opening, and playing with Heart, Joan Jett, Graham Nash, Country Joe McDonald, Joe Bonamassa, Guns N’ Roses, members of Deep Purple, Billy Ray Cyrus, Eric Johnson, Gregg Allman, Keith Urban and Cee Lo Green, which included a main stage slot at Coachella.
At the age of 18, good fortune ensued when Arielle was handpicked by guitarist Brian May for a key role in the London-based musical “We Will Rock You” – a production based on the songs of his band Queen. From the cover of Guitar Player Magazine, to being recognized by country superstar Vince Gill as one of the ‘Top 5 Best New Guitarists,’ to being cast as a guitar player on the hit TV show Nashville, to ascending to No. 3 on the CMT Pure chart with the song “California,” as well as being featured on vocals and guitar on the new Joe Bonamassa documentary “Guitar Man” with the credit track. She has released 9 albums/EP’s, one of which placed in 11 chart genres in 2017 independently, including #3 in the Heatseekers Chart.
Her pride and joy is the “Two-Tone,” an extraordinary one-of-a-kind guitar she painstakingly designed, and hand-built, with her friend Patrick Yates. Brian May Guitars released a signature model-based on Two-Tone and the Brian May Red Special called ‘The BMG Arielle’ in March 2021.On April 20, 2023, Arielle will release her new studio album, ’73.
