While her LA upbringing heightened her sense of self, spirit of hustle,and incessant inclination to treat every artistic project as an experience. Her time in the South, developed her sound, fed her artistry, and nurtured her musicianship.
Like many standout singers of our time, Aeriel’s passion for performing began in the church. Inspired by giants like Stevie Wonder, Smokey Robinson, and Stevie Nicks, the classically trained beauty is an example of true musicianship, playing both the piano and the guitar.
As Aeriel’s aspirations matured, beat making and live performances came into play, via a beginners studio set gifted to her in middle school. She began to scratch the surface of her capabilities in songwriting, singing, and solidifying her stance as an artist. Today her love of musicians like Frank Ocean and Jhene Aiko, impact the way she approaches songwriting. Her creative process is all about being comfortable with the discomfort of opening up, and creating genuine content that is “true to self.” Her debut project, “Sad Girls Club” was released January 2018.
