Ariana and The Rose

Love Me, Love Me Not

March 13

Ariana & the Rose is the new indie pop project from singer/songwriter Ariana DiLorenzo.  Ariana has merged her love of synth pop and the singer/songwriter genre to create a fresh, “mature” pop sound, collaborating with Grammy winning producer David Kahne (Paul McCartney, Regina Spector) on her six-song debut EP, “Love Me, Love Me Not”. The EP is a musical and lyrical pop journey that guides listeners from the days of carefree adolescence into the challenges of being a young adult. The debut single “When You Know, You Know” was co-written with Greg Camp, a founding member of the platinum selling group Smashmouth.

In 2012 A&TR opened for the Dirty Pearls at the Gramercy Theatre, was a headliner on the 2012 Camplified Tour, and performed at the New Music Seminar. Recently, Ariana has teamed up with musical director David Cook (Taylor Swift, Natasha Bedingfield) to craft a high energy live show and will be playing the after parties for Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way Ball” in New York and Miami in 2013.

As a native New Yorker, Ariana attended the professional Performing Arts School and has been performing professionally since she was 13 years old. She has acted in off-Broadway shows, national commercials, and television shows such as the HBO hit’ The Sopranos.” While attending NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, she began to focus more on her music and teamed up with producers Jon Hanser and Tony Brock of Danger Productions to write and record a track for their dance album Bliss (Thump Universal Records). She performed the single at Miami hotspot “Twist” as a part of the 2010 Winter Music Conference. Ariana spent the following summer in Nashville where she continued to develop her songwriting skills as well as her sound as an artist. She wrote with several producers including Jeff Coplan and Marshall Altman, resulting in sync placement on such shows as “Dance Moms.”
