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, the O2 in London, and the Las Vegas strip. 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. 


Her burlesque queendom reigns internationally, having emceed and headlined for the top cabarets in the world including DITA VON TEESE & FriendsQuixotic Fusions' TRYST CABARET at the legendary Baz Luhrmann designed Faena Theater, Germany and Vienna's own PALAZZO Cabarets, and the PMJ HIDEAWAY at THE MIRAGE in Las Vegas. In 2023, she will be the star in residence at the world renowned WINDMILL SOHO in London.


Now, with the release of her album, DRAMA, 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, Peter Gabriel, 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 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.
