ABM – Tell us about yourself?

Hi my name is Ariana, and I am a writer, singer, and I rap. I believe my generation is what gives me my individual sound. I write about what’s going on in the life of the youth today. My life, as well as my friends and family keeps me encouraged and full of ambition. I have been singing for as long as I can remember. I recorded my grandmother a whole song as a toddler using her handheld tape recorder. I have always listen to songs very thrall. Listening to the highs and lows of voices. Imitating the singer down to the ad-libs and background vocals. Music became my way of understanding life and people. I could tell what type of mode a person was in depending on the music they were playing or singing. My creative side always gave me a voice, and NOW I’m ready to be heard. Thanks to All Bay Music for the interview.
