A long and winding road led Ariana Savalas from attending a Catholic convent school, to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art studying Shakespeare in London, to burlesque stardom and gaining international fame as a renowned songwriter, cabaret queen, and one of the founding members of vintage phenomenon, Postmodern Jukebox.
Her collaborations with Postmodern Jukebox, timeless in a way that parallels her own original music, have garnered hundreds of millions of views online and repeatedly reached #1 on the iTunes charts. She’s traveled the world on tour, from Vienna to Singapore, performing for the masses in legendary venues such as Radio City Music Hall, The Greek Theater, and the O2 in London. A singer, songwriter, dancer, and multi-instrumentalist, the PMJ princess has solidified herself as the musical burlesque queen and the mistress of the modern Moulin Rouge.
Now, with the release of What Do You Wanna Know, the debut single off of her forthcoming album, Savalas delves into the intensely glamorous, operatic rock depths of her songwriting artistry. The dramatic, one of a kind collection of vibrant, cabaret rock songs written by Savalas is reminiscent of alt-pop legends such as Robbie Williams, Annie Lennox, Queen, and Bowie, while simultaneously harkening to the colorful burlesques which formed her life and career. Savalas called upon her longtime dear friend, legendary UK producer Steve Power (Robbie Williams, Kylie Minogue), to bring the anthemic production of her single to life. Power’s production mastery coupled with Savalas’ songwriting results in a musical marriage directly reflecting Savalas’ own personality, wildly dramatic yet entirely down to earth.
