Aria is a Pop / Modern Country Artist from NY. A Country Artist from NY and Latina to boot? Once you learn a little about Aria, you soon learn that it's not as odd as it may sound. Aria has been singing practically since she could start talking. She grew up in a very musical environment. Her family has always encouraged her musical dreams and ambitions. With her father being a musician and singer, she grew up having been exposed to everything from Rock to Pop to Latin to Country and this comes through in her music. She began writing songs at an early age and plays guitar, piano and mandolin.
While rock and pop are what she grew up on, it was the genuineness of country music that guided her to what type of music she would want to pursue as a career. As Aria says, "I love that almost every song has a deeper meaning and any person can relate to the songs. The songs are always heartfelt and nothing ever seems fake or forced. I think that’s the best part of country music. When I was growing up and while writing songs, I think that helped me decide that I wanted to someday be a country singer. I could just be the nerdy, crazy, young girl that I am and I wouldn’t have to change to be anything that I’m not." That genuineness of Country Music is something very important to this smart young girl who was not only a straight A student from elementary through high school but also a young woman of faith. With Country artists that she admires such as Carrie Underwood, LeAnn Rimes, Taylor Swift, Martina McBride, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Shania Twain and Miranda Lambert, she saw and heard that she could be country yet still have a little of the rock/pop sound that she also loves. She’s brought those influences to her two albums. On her second album Chrysalis, she also brought some of her influences from CCM artists such as Jamie Grace, Moriah Peters and Tenth Avenue North into her songwriting.
Based on a combination of her image, talent, personality and ambition she was offered an Artist Development deal by World Conquest Management at age 12 and spent a year working on all it takes to be an artist. At age 13 she was signed to World Conquest Records and began working on her debut album "Daydreaming", which was released in September 2011. With an album full of songs about self-belief, family and more, this talented young artist also co-wrote 2 songs on the album. Her follow up album "Chrysalis" was released in June 2016. The 3rd single off the album is the sweet ballad "Happy Birthday to You". It shows not only her musical and vocal evolution but also her songwriting evolution, as she also co-wrote 7 of the new album's 11 songs.
