    Watch Arielle's Video for "California" - Queen's Brian May discovered her

    Wanna visit California without leaving the house, no matter where you are? Then we've got good news. Rising singer-songwriter-guitarist Arielle has shared her video for "California," which captures the state's essence.

    The video features Arielle visiting some of the 31st state's most beautiful scenery, including the light-laced City of Angels, while singing that she "can't find the sunshine in California."

    "I didn't fit in," says Arielle of the feeling that she had growing up and that she had later, trying to find her footing in music.

    Yet the New Jersey native has lived in California for most of her life, singing since age five (with the prestigious San Francisco Bay Area Peninsula Girls Chorus) and then learning the piano, trumpet and at age 10, guitar. By 16, she'd become a rock-guitar virtuoso (even earning the attention of her childhood idol, Queen guitarist Brian May,) before being "discovered" by guitarist Nuno Bettencourt (Extreme, Rihanna).

    Her self-titled EP, set for release on April 29, is the sound of claiming her place – creatively, emotionally and existentially.

    Now that you have her history and intel, why don't you visit "California" with Arielle by watching the video below?
