Arielle is one of those rare talents that comes along where you look at what she’s capable of and it kind of knocks you out. A guitar virtuoso who also is blessed with a four-octave voice, Arielle has played on stage with everyone from Queen in the “We Will Rock You” musical to Cee Lo Green at Coachella. She’s opened for Guns ‘n Roses, Larkin Poe and Heart, collaborated with Eric Johnson and Kings and Daughters’ Talia Dean and appeared regularly on the TV show “Nashville.” She studied at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, put out EPS and albums, including her latest—Analog Girl In A Digital World—and, along with Queen’s Brian May, she designed a guitar, the retro future BMG Arielle. May said of the instrument: “It’s a new dimension. To understand why this guitar was irresistible to me, you have to hold her in your hands. She’s light, smooth, agile and she sings like a bird.” An activist, an artist an engineer and a master technician, Arielle’s gifts are profound and powerful. And she’s a lovely human being. In this open and candid conversation she talks to Alex about her take on possessions, staying in touch with people and why a ride in an ambulance was deeply important to her as a musician.
