Award-winning American singer-songwriter and guitarist Arielle will release her new studio album ‘73 on Friday 20 April 2023. The new album is a sentiment of love and an ode to her personal 1973 Volkswagen Bay Window Bus that Arielle lovingly refers to as Magick – a celebration of its 50 years of existence. Mixing classic rock, the songwriting of the sixties, wanderlust, and plenty of The Who inspired guitar, Arielle’s new studio album is set to stun.
“I bought my bus because every time I step into it, I feel like it’s a time machine, every time I step in, it takes me back to ’73”, says Arielle.
A self-proclaimed analog girl, it’s Arielle’s personal prerogative to keep the vintage vibes alive. Doting her retro Marshall full stacks, recording her tracks to tape and her self-built customized guitar Two-Tone, rest assured, the 21st century isn’t quieting classic rock any time soon. The album features her brand-new BMG Arielle 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.
“To understand why this guitar was irresistible to me, you need to hold her in your hands,The guitar is light, and smooth and agile”, says Arielle. “The BMG Arielle sings like a bird and Arielle’s guitar playing reaches places I never knew existed”, says Brian May. “I believe this guitar will do the same.”
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.
