Ariel Artists


Founded in 2009 by pianist and poet Oni Buchanan, and staffed by a collegial family of trained musicians with years of experience in management, promotion, and arts administration, Ariel Artists is an artist management company shaped by and designed for the evolving landscape of music in the 21st century.

Though our artists have a wide range of styles and distinctive voices, they share with each other (and with our staff) a driving passion for artistic exploration and vibrant contemporary expression.  Our staff provides multifaceted expertise and structure – functioning as a family of rigorous support for our artists – and engages with presenters, audiences, new markets, and traditional outlets in an informed, deft, and responsive manner.

We are here because we truly believe that the experience of music offers the “spirits to enforce” and the “art to enchant.”  We aspire to connect the world through that joyous shared exploration.
