Hailing from South-East London, with abilities to wow your ears, warm your hearts & captivate your mind, with his distinctive soulful tone, and playful twist on melodies, Arieleno cannot be denied.
As part of a UK RnB duo In'sight, Arieleno was the recipient of the 2013 MOBO Unsung Award. The win brought a host of opportunities which led to becoming a support act for various established artists around London, and the U.K; having already successfully supported acts such as Ed Sheeran (Asylum/Warner) earlier.

After In'sight disbanded, Arieleno began to focus on developing his growing passion for a songwriting career, landing him in studio sessions where he would co-write songs for the Eurovision Song Contest & record background vocals for X-Factor star Alexandra Burke (Syco/Sony).

In 2016 Arieleno became the front-man & lead vocalist for the Indie-Soul band 'Angel River', developed by Simon Brenner, the founding member & keyboardist of 80's Synth-Pop band 'Talk Talk' (EMI/Polydor).
Angel River successfully recorded & released a digital album entitled 'Angels & Lovers' in 2017.

As of 2018, Arieleno has been persistent, working on his forthcoming EP, having set up his Indie Record Label ‘Persistent Sounds’ - get it?

The first official single release is a track entitled 'Miles Away' which is a Soulful Retro-Pop Love song, co-written with rising RnB/Soul artist, James Vickery, released Friday 2nd November 2018, available on all major digital stores.

To tie in with the singles theme of ‘Love’, the well-known sweets brand, Swizzles- Matlow kindly sponsored the campaign with their famous ‘Love Hearts’ brand of sweets.
