Ariella McManus Ariella McManus

Hailing from Sarasota, Florida, Ariella McManus is a charismatic jazz & blues singer who combines stunning melodies with infectious grooves and great beats to create a catchy, yet direct and edgy sound. Teaming with guitarist Nicolaas Kraster, a talented musician from Fredonia, NY, and producer Fab Dupont, ARIELLA’s recent releases, “Joy” and “Terrified,” are great examples of her sonic vision, marking a unique step forward for this artist, whose sound is becoming increasingly more personal and defined. Due to her distinctive approach to songwriting, Ariella has been compared to artists as diverse as Etta James, Patsy Cline and Amy Winehouse.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
