It is really about a state of uncertainty that can exist at any age, explains Arielle.
Artistic expression has been Arielles sustenance for as long as she can remember. Adoring the stage at an early age, she spent her summers at a performing arts camp studying dance and appearing in various musical productions. Throughout this time, she depended on popular radio stations and eclectic mixes from friends for musical companionship. She learned about the emotional impact of a great song by listening to artists as varied as Madonna, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, Simon & Garfunkel, Jimi Hendrix, R.E.M., the Indigo Girls, and other Lilith Fair regulars. She continued to perform during high school and college with esteemed choral and a cappella groups, as well as becoming a regular audience member at her favorite artists shows. She would travel far and wide to experience the emotional highs that these artists awakened within her. It was as an audience member that she was struck with the realization that, If someone else can give me this amazing feeling, I want to be able to do the same for others.
