Arielle in ’73

Award-winning American singer-songwriter and guitarist Arielle will release her new studio album, ’73, on Friday 20th April.

Mixing classic rock, the songwriting of the sixties, wanderlust, and plenty of The Who inspired guitar, the studio album is said to be “set to stun”, it is also a sentiment of love and an ode to her personal 1973 Volkswagen bay-window bus that she lovingly refers to as “Magick” – It being a celebration of its 50 years of existence.

“I bought my bus because every time I step into it, I feel like it’s a time machine,” she said. “Every time I step in, it takes me back to ’73.”

The title track has been released as a single and is available to stream and download from here and you can check out Arielle’s video to it right here at RAMzine.

Tracks featured on the album are: ‘The Dulcet’, ‘Somewhere Slow’, ‘’73’, ‘Goes Without Saying’, ‘Way You Look At Me’, ‘Weakness For You’, ‘Kalypso’, ‘I Need An Angel’, ‘That’s Just Lonely’, ‘The Other Side (Let The Sun Set Down), ‘If’ and ‘Wherever We Go From Here’.

The album is available to order from here, being released while she goes on tour as special guest to When Rivers Meet on their April and May 2023 UK tour, with tickets available from this link.

Arielle is a young woman born in a different generation. As a child of the new millennium, Arielle has often faced depression, versus the music boom and creativity that emerged in the 1960s and the 1970s – a time where things were done by hand, with a level of craft that could not be hidden behind technology. 

A self-proclaimed analogue girl, Arielle’s personal prerogative is to “keep the vintage vibes alive”. Doting on her retro Marshall full stacks, recording her tracks to tape, all with a self-built customized guitar Two-Tone, the 21st century isn’t quitting classic rock any time soon. The album also features her brand-new BMG Arielle guitar in cherry red; manufactured by Brian May Guitars. The first quantity of the BMG Arielle guitars sold out in 90 minutes. Due to popular demand, for the very first time, the BMG Arielle will be available in limited edition solid cherry red colour via this link.

“To understand why this guitar was irresistible to me, you need to hold her in your hands,” said Arielle. “The guitar is light, and smooth and agile. The BMG Arielle sings like a bird.”

“Arielle’s guitar playing reaches places I never knew existed,” commented Brian May himself. “I believe this guitar will do the same.” Find out for yourselves by listening to her on record or live on tour.
