    Arianna Neikrug (2018)

    Visit Website

    Singer-songwriter Arianna Neikrug was born and raised in Los Angeles, and now makes New York City her home base.

    2015 was a big year for Arianna: she graduated from the Frost School at the University of Miami with a bachelor of music degree in Studio Music and Jazz Vocal Performance; she took home some awards from the Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival; and she won the Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Vocal Competition (the "Sassy" Awards), impressing judges such as Cyrille Aimée, Christian McBride, and Dianne Reeves.

    Arianna has been on stage at some of the hottest clubs around, including SFJAZZ's Joe Henderson lab, where, by coincidence, she appeared on the evening of her desert island show.

    By further coincidence, Arianna's debut album, "Changes" on Concord Records was released that same day. On it, she's accompanied by pianist, arranger, producer and Grammy-winner Laurence Hobgood, who knows a thing or two about singers!
