Graphic artist, guitarist, singer and songwriter, Arielle Bryant is based out of North Carolina. A seasoned performer of over a decade - her sound is raw, vibrant, and provocatively soaking with grit. Compared to acts such as Ani Difranco, Caitlin Cary, St. Vincent and Rhiannon Giddens - This walking, talking, archetype of the Siren of myth, effortlessly obliterates preconceived notions of the all-too-familiar "female singer-songwriter" mold. Fueled by uniquely powerful vocals, her songs brim with poignant, witty lyrics that remain long after the tide has gone out. A force of nature, Bryant's appeal is made whole with wildly catchy guitar riffs and hooks - complete with 'line and sinker' that leave listeners gladly baffled by the enormous energy, unsuspectingly, emitted by this petite bard.
“A fireball of a singer/songwriter.
Her style is poetic and personal, knowing no boundaries. This red-headed songstress can whip out acoustic riffs that alone would leave the listener entranced, but then she spits out quick paced vocals that turn into catchy melodic choruses that stick around for days.”
Grant Golden - The Bottom String Music Blog
“Her sound is raw, yet resonant, and stays collected, despite her intensely emotional words.”
Jamey Benson / Producer 100.7 The River Singer-Songwriter Showcase
“The Triangle music scene has had a long line of strong female leads, from Cailtin Cary to Carolina Chocolate Drops’ Rhiannon Giddens. Singer-songwriter Arielle Bryant is the latest is this lineage”
