My Name is Michelle Ariane, and I am a Swiss / Minnesotan Singer-Songwriter based out of Los Angeles. My Songwriting is based in Americana, Folk Pop, and Soul. I perform various genres from Blues and Jazz to Soul, Pop, and Rock.
I grew up in a musical family where singing was an important pillar.
I started out performing solos choir performances at the age of seven. At 16 I joined the professional classical choir at the academic high school Unterstrass in Zurich where I also studied classical / opera for four years. I graduated in 2013 with a music degree.
Following that, I moved to Los Angeles, where I created my Home base.
I completed my Associates Degree in Vocal Performance at the LA College of Music (LACM) in Pasadena in March 2015.
In the Spring of 2019, I completed my Bachelors in Music Business and graduated with honors from the University of Wolverhampton.
The Women's Freedom Song Contest rewarded me and my co-writer Alfa Garcia an honorable mention for our song 'Silver Bullet' for an example of great songwriting. (The song is to be publicly released in the Fall of 2019)
In the Summer of 2019, I moved to Switzerland to continue my musical journey as a storyteller and performer in Basel.
My new Album 'Bridge The Great Divide' is planned to be released in Switzerland in the Fall of 2019. To see more information, check out my second successful Kickstarter that helps fund this new project here.
