New female R&B/HIP-HOP artist, “Arie Vee,” making major noise in the Inland Empire is What it Do With The LUE this week.
So the first time I heard this Queen sing was at our 1st Indie Artist Award Show last year. We were short a female singer and were down to the last minute of preparation for our Red Carpet performances. I reached to Aaron Swift, owner of On My Mama Recordz, a local record company based out of the Inland Empire. He sent us his talented artist Arie Vee. I fell in love with her voice. Bringing back that old school R&B vibe, this Queen is the real deal.
Arie Vee, born on December 1, 1988, is a Hip Hop/R&B artist on On My Mama Recordz. Some of her musical influences are Lauryn Hill, Jill Scott and J Cole. Arie Vee began singing in church at the age of 5 and began writing her own music at the age of 13. She shared her first written song at her High School talent show, “I Wanna Be,” and won. Since then she kept writing and wrote her first rap at the age of 18. She has been featured on albums and mixtapes such as, “Dear IE” by Valencia Stacks and “Grandma’s Porch,” by Valencia Stacks and Swift. Her debut song “High School Dance,” which is one of my favorites has been taking the IE by storm and her first album “Lost Child,” was released on February 29, 2016.
Make sure to check her out. You can catch her music in rotation on our show “Listening With LUE Radio,” Sundays from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Please tune in with me and Comedian Anthony Stone.
