This Friday our musical guest is Nashville-based artist Ariel Bui. Her self tilted album was produced by Grammy nominated Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray For The Riff Raff) and is receiving excellent reviews from American Songwriter and others. NPR’s Ann Powers calls Ariel Bui “a psychedelic cowgirl rockabilly queen.”
On a personal note, Ariel grew up in Brevard County, attending Delaura Middle School and Cocoa Beach H.S. She studied music at Rollins College and became station director at WPRK in Winter Park. Currently Ariel is a DJ at community radio station WXNA-LP in Nashville.
We’ll hear a live set with Ariel Bui on Friday at noontime on Sound Waves WFIT 89.5 FM.
