L.Ariel (pronounced “L-Ariel”), founder and host of “Hey, How’d You Get That Music Job???” is a singer/songwriter/producer of dance synth pop. She swirls complex chords into layers of synth sounds to create deliciously addictive hooks and dance-driven beats. Her pop songs are beguilingly sweet with clever, complicated lyrics, infused with a genuine longing that lingers after the last note.

L.Ariel’s second EP, “Diatribe,” a collaboration with producer SoundControl, is out now on all streaming and download platforms. You can check out her music, videos, and more on her website, larielmusic.com
