Arielle Paul is a Los Angeles-based singer, writer and blogger popular for Amazon Prime’s viral commercial and original song, “You and Me.” This past summer she released her EP, “BURN,” which features a combination of psych-folk, Americana, cowboy disco and soul and is produced by and co-written with Dan Gross (composer for Comedy Central’s “Drunk History”). “Burn” was recorded at Bedrock LA, mixed by Claire Morison (mixer for Lauren Ruth Ward’s LP “Well, Hell”) and mastered by John Greenham (Billie Eilish, Sam Smith, LP).
Arielle pens the home and design columns “My Favorite Room” and “Property Talk” for the LA Times and writes the style and travel blogs, WEST and BARD + PAUL. She’s been featured on Vogue.com, Refinery29 and as a brand ambassador for Disneyland’s Food and Wine Festival.
In 2016, her original song “You and Me” was featured on Amazon Prime’s viral commercial about a baby and a golden retriever wearing a lion’s mane. The commercial aired for two-years internationally and its success led to the 2017 release of her EP, “Every day, Every Way,” in Tokyo, Japan (available worldwide on Amazon and Spotify).
Her father is a founding member of the 10-time Grammy-winning vocal group, The Manhattan Transfer, and her mother is a British writer and model. Recently, Arielle was featured with her mother on Fox News in a story about holistic living and graceful aging.
She spent much of her childhood touring around the world with her family and working as a professional actor, model and musician. When she was 13, she performed a duet with Dionne Warwick and shared the stage with Ray Charles in front of 35,000 people in Isao Tomita’s “Mind of the Universe” at the Nagoya Dome in Japan. She graduated from UC Berkeley where she double-majored in English and Performance Studies.
Arielle’s music has been featured on “Mind of Mencia,” “Drunk History” and “Ghost Ghirls,” as well as commercials for Amazon Prime, Fuji Film, Wacoal, Sheba, Kirin, Mitsubishi, Kao, Glico, Hairtoxic and recently Shiseido and Morinaga. She is currently creating original music for Nitori’s upcoming commercial campaign and has performed on national Japanese radio stations such as J-Wave, InterFM and FM Port.
She is an active volunteer with The Art of Elysium, a non-profit aimed at empowering artists and communities in need to join together and emotionally triumph over their circumstances through art. Through the program, Arielle does bedside performances for children in critical conditions and individuals who have been in a hospital bed their entire life.
Arielle enjoys venturing new pastures in her self-renovated 1962 Scotsman trailer with her husband and friends. She’s a lifelong vegetarian and mother to four cats.
