Pre-order the signature guitar HERE. “This is the very first guitar that Brian May guitars has ever offered that is not based on my original Red Special,” says Brian May. “Designed by, and named after Arielle, it’s a new dimension. To understand why this guitar was irresistible to me, you have to hold her in your hands. The guitar is light, smooth and agile. She sings like a bird.”
Arielle is a 21st century classic rock artist who recorded half of the new album in digital, and the other half in tape, to try and capture the impact music of the 60’s and 70’s had on her. As a writer, guitarist, and singer, when Arielle produced this album, she insisted on recording each song in one take. Recording the album in studios in Nashville and Austin, Texas, Arielle set out to capture the energy of each city and their musicians.
Continues Brian, “Arielle is an awesome musician. She is a truly phenomenal player, with an ability to produce the most beautiful tones as well technical mastery. Of course, it is in the fingers, but I was keen to discover how she had fashioned her own instrument to achieve her sound. We collaborated in making the Arielle a new mission to guitarists everywhere – to open up a new door to excellence!” “Arielle’s playing reaches places I never knew existed,” says Brian. “I believe this guitar will do the same.”
Arielle is a young woman who was born in the wrong generation. At times facing depression in being a child of the new millennium versus the boom of musically creativity that emerged in the Sixties and thrived through the Seventies. And on a broader basis, a time even earlier where things were done by hand, with a level of craft that could not be hidden behind technology.”I take and protect those principles inside my music,” says Arielle.
Born in the US, but a self-proclaimed wanderer, Arielle began studying music at the age of 5. 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 will release a signature model-based on Two-Tone and the Brian May Red Special called ‘The Arielle’ in March 2021.
The new album takes you on a journey through the trials, tribulations, and confusion of an old-school artist in a fast-paced world.
