Pachagazine: Tell us more about you as a brand
Arianna is 24 year old singer/songwriter from New Rochelle, NY. She goes by the brand name Arianna Marie. For as long as she can remember, she has always been in love with music. Arianna grew up singing in the church and was in the same community of people who also were easily influenced in the same lifestyle of music.

Pachagazine: What first got you into music ?
I was always able to sing growing up. I was a part of my church’s choir and I used to go to the studio with my brother when he used to be a musician. My brother used to ask me to create my own verses for his songs. This was his way of basically grooming me to officially become a music artist.

Pachagazine: How long have you been in the entertainment industry?
I’ve been writing my own music since I was 17 years old and I decided to take my creative skills seriously once I became a senior in high school.

Pachagazine: Who do you look up to in the industry?
I look up to a few people such as Michael Jackson, Partynextdoor, H.E.R, & many more.

Pachagazine: What are some of the challenges you face coming into the music industry?
Sometimes discouragement, disbelief or lack of motivation can arise but it all comes down to being disciplined & using it to stay consistent.
Pachagazine: How would you describe the competition?
There are many artists that want it as bad as yours so there is a lot of competition. If this is something you really see yourself doing for the rest of your life, you have to work tirelessly everyday on chasing your dream.

Pachagazine: How would you describe the music you create and how it stands out?
I would describe my music as edgy rnb. I could make a song where I am showing off my vocal range with some riffs or I can do something like a song where I’m smooth talking with some lofi vibes.

Pachagazine: Where have you performed and which was your favourite venue?
I’ve performed at many places such as Carnegie Hall, The Paper Box, The Delancey, & more. But my favorite will probably be the one I’m performing at in a few days, which is S.O.B’s.

Pachagazine: What inspires your compositions?
Being outside & surrounding myself with nature. I find myself being in a creative state when I am grounded to nature, so when I am on the beach, having a picnic or going hiking.

Pachagazine: Do you have any collaborations? Who would you most likely want to work with?
Yes, I do have a song called “Ain’t no way” with one of my close friends Ty Breezzyy. The number one artists I want to collab with right now is Partynextdoor
Pachagazine: Do you have any upcoming projects or events?
I do have another single coming out soon as well as a planned EP but I can’t go too much into detail about that.

Pachagazine: What else do you do apart from your art?
I love to workout, I love creating short films & content, I make candles & I do so much more but those are the top things I love to do besides making music.

Pachagazine: Which mistake can you advise any artist that wants to follow your footsteps against?
Don’t give up. No one ever got to their dream by giving up. Stay consistent, pray & focus.
