1/2 of the band ANIMA, aka Magic Woman. Internationally touring vocalist, songwriter, producer, multi-instrumentalist and teacher.
Hello! I am Arielle and I wear many hats in this industry!
I am most known for my work in the alt. electronic folk duo ANIMA! (vocals, songwriting and some production) or my collab work under the alias Magic Woman. I am a vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist in any style. I have also been teaching music for over 10 years and I offer lessons via Arielle Vakni Music, my online music school.
I studied songwriting at Berklee College of Music, where I met my bandmates and went on to release music independently which have now garnered millions of streams across many platforms. We tour internationally and we were lucky enough to play the main stage at Lightning in a Bottle festival in 2018.
I have collaborated with many different artists including Dirty South, Rasmus Faber and Sammy Legs both as ANIMA! and Magic Woman. I also write and record music for brands (Mercedes, Mastercard), film (Tight Loose), and other forms of media.
I am also a multi-instrumentalist and proficient in Ableton Live, Logic and GarageBand. I record and produce music for myself and others. I play guitar, piano, bass, ukulele as well.
Arielle Vakni Music is my online school where I offer lessons in voice, guitar, piano, bass, ukulele, music theory, songwriting, recording and production.
