Joy (Indie)

Hailing from Sarasota Florida, Ariella is a charismatic jazz & blues singer who combines stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats, in order to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound. Teaming with guitarist Nicolaas Kraster, a talented musician from Fredonia NY, in 2009, Ariella’s recent releases, which include “Joy,” are a triumphant example of her sonic vision, marking a unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined. Due to her distinctive approach, Ariella has often been compared to artists as diverse as Etta James, Patsy Cline or Amy Winehouse.
