*Is it open mike or open mic? I’ve seen it spelled both ways. So I checked my dictionary, which lists mike as the preferred spelling, and mic as a variant. Other dictionaries I consulted didn’t include mic at all. Still unsatisfied, I checked Bryan A. Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage (1998 edition). Garner argues, “Whereas mike more immediately suggests the pronunciation, mic more immediately suggests the longer form. All in all, mic might be considered preferable.”

A tad slight on the square footage, but this music scene certainly isn’t lacking. The stage is set at the front of a large garage, with adequate floor space and a few risers in the back. A small courtyard outside provides extra standing room when the inside exceeds maximum capacity. The building isn’t state-of-the-art, but the sound system and lighting is quite good.

Arienette

Arienette, Singer-Songwriter, West Jordan, Utah, Acoustic, Folk, MusicianI have been involved with music ever since I can remember. I started my musical journey at a very young age by taking piano lessons and I was so excited that I would skip ahead through lessons and memorize all the songs in every book. At the same time I also participated in children choirs and loved performing. After my first experiences on stage I knew this is where I belonged.

I soon began playing the clarinet in elementary school and then switched to the oboe in middle school. My grandfather played the bass guitar during the 60’s in an Akron Ohio band called the “Blues Society”. When he passed away my older sister bought a bass guitar to help remember him. I picked up that bass guitar at age 11 and fell in love with Jazz music. I have played in my middle school, high school, and college jazz bands. I also played the bass in a few project bands.

I wrote my first song “Walk Away”when I was 14 and couldn’t stop writing after that. I started playing in bands and writing songs on my own, and collaborating with other musicians. It was difficult to write songs when playing the bass guitar so I turned back to the piano and later taught myself to play the guitar. For me music is like colors on a canvas. When I hear music I see color. Writing songs is like this thing inside of me dying to get out.

I love to perform and find myself completely at home on stage. It is the place where I am most comfortable. I have independently recorded and released two full-length albums and I am working on promoting and playing around the Utah. I find recording a little frustrating because it is so hard to make the final product sound the way I hear it in my head.

In my current music project I go by the name Arienette. I’ve been working full time on my music other than attending a semester of music classes at Salt Lake community College. The summer of 2011 has been quite busy for me I’ve been playing shows twice a week and promoting my new CD. I look forward to the future and the possibilities it might hold for me.
