Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

The amount of courage that it takes to be able to even get to the moment where you are standing in front of a microphone in the recording studio can feel insurmountable. At least it did for me. I will never forget recording this song. I really wanted for the engineer to care about what we were creating. This was not only going to be my first single but the song touches on the very sensitive topic of when my friends and former classmates died in an avalanche on a school trip. Obviously it was a large task to ask … Continue reading Exhibit A Released 5 Years Ago Today

NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

We all know that relationship, you know, the one you get into because it fulfils some sort of fantasy? Well, maybe I just described every relationship to a certain extent, but you catch my drift. Years ago I was involved very briefly with someone with a striking resemblance to a celebrity crush. And, as you do, I wrote and recorded a song about the “situationship”. The relationship plays out in the lyrics of Uncanny from start to finish with an important message at the end of the track. Shoutout to Masta Ace and Jean Grae for always capturing my attention … Continue reading NEW MUSIC: Uncanny

NEW MUSIC VIDEO: Next To Me

Next To Me is close to my heart. The track is the last song off my latest EP Verbal Jurisdiction: Part 1 and is the one song I really needed to see come to life. Hit the play button to see why. All lyrics and vocals are by Arielle London and the beautiful production is by Anywaywell. The timing is just my way of giving a little holiday gift to you. I hope that you are having an amazing holiday season, whether you are with loved ones or not. And if you are not, just know that you are still … Continue reading NEW MUSIC VIDEO: Next To Me

DAY 17: Chess Moves

Years ago I recognized the need to create a brand for my artistry. Everyone in the industry has one, and so it felt as though the smartest thing to do was to pick a brand that would have the greatest longevity for my personality. I factored in things like happiness, my interests, and the sustainability of a persona. In the end, I couldn’t find anything except authenticity. I committed to speaking my truth as I knew to be at any given time. I committed to being myself. I committed to making music and art that was in my heart and … Continue reading DAY 17: Chess Moves

DAY 14: Sunday Vibes

Sunday mornings are for drinking tea, listening to music and sitting in bed until it is no longer in fashion to do so. Which means technically you can sit in bed all day. But, since there are things to get done and there is definitely food to be eaten, I will eventually be emerging from the comfort of my sheets and comfy blankets. Luckily for myself and fellow Montrealers, the temperature outside is mild so that means it is an optimal day for running errands. It is snowing all day but according to my iPhone the flurries stop in 42 … Continue reading DAY 14: Sunday Vibes

DAY 5: The Early Bird

Good Morning Interwebs! Part of my 30 Day Challenge is making sure that I am awake by a certain time every morning. So far, most mornings, I wake up even before my alarm goes off and I start my day. This new feeling of having the entire day laid out in front of me (and new habit of trying to get into bed early as well) has left me feeling refreshed. Well, definitely in the mornings… at night, I am ready for sleep way earlier than before. But also, I am making a real effort to get into bed even … Continue reading DAY 5: The Early Bird

Verbal Jurisdiction: My Art, My Love, My Joy, My Music

The thing about putting out music is that you change. You evolve. Over time we grow and in my case as I have grown my mind has cemented. That might sound unattractive to some, but those who know mental anguish know that they may have prayed for that cement to finally come into place. I planned my structure, my mind was in ruins, and not by my own torch burning. COVID tested a lot of us, myself included, but I knew I was being confined to my own home…I had been through worse. I worried about the women and children … Continue reading Verbal Jurisdiction: My Art, My Love, My Joy, My Music

NEW MUSIC: No One Wins At War

This song is dedicated to every woman who has ever found their body as the battlefield. No one wins at war. Vocals & Lyrics: Arielle LondonInstrumental: The Fugees – Ready or Not I found this song in The Vault tonight. The lyrics were too relevant for the time not to release. At a moment in history where we are seeing a rise in domestic violence cases, this women’s rights track hit me too hard not to share. Hope it resonates, A. Continue reading NEW MUSIC: No One Wins At War

My 70-Song Playlist Getting Me Through COVID-19

Discovering new music is one of the greatest joys in life. If you’re like me, finding that new song to add to your playlist gets you excited kinda like when the ice cream man used to come through. Except instead of sugary treats on overload they deliver fire beats, poignant lyricism, something to dance to, or something to think about. We all interact with music differently, but here’s a look at my playlist getting me through COVID-19. There’ll be some joints you know and some you don’t but feel free to add them to your libraries as well! Majority are … Continue reading My 70-Song Playlist Getting Me Through COVID-19
