Meet composer
Ariana Henare

My name is Ariana I am a full-time professional musician and mother of two. I sing and play the guitar.

I have played RnV twice, opened for Hollie Smith & Tiki Taane and soon to open for a Shape Shifter gig next weekend in Hawkes Bay which I am very excited about! I aim to record an EP over the next 12months and hope to play more shows where my set consists more of original music rather than covers. I am a lover of animals and nature and am also a big foodie and love to create plant-based meals.

I am still working on releasing any works. (I am very fussy so it has been a long process). I do have an acoustic version of a song on sound cloud but that is it at this stage.

I am working with another musician on recording my original works and hope to complete an EP over the next 12months. I have completed a work which is a collaboration with a good friend of mine but that will be all hush until sometime next year.
