Arielle Martinez Cohen

Singer / Songwriter

Arielle Martinez Cohen is a 17 year old singer, songwriter, producer, and activist from Los Angeles, CA. She has been working in the music business since she was nine years old, singing back-up vocals for artists such as Macklemore, Imagine Dragons, Frank Ocean, Foster The People and Linda Perry, and appearing on the Jimmy Kimmel Show, Conan O’Brien and The Talk, among others.

At 13, she started to write her own songs, and at 15 she was selected to attend Grammy Camp for Songwriting. In January 2018, her song, “Two Minutes to Midnight” was used by The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists in their announcement of the Doomsday Clock, and in March of this year, she sang her song “Why” at the March For Our Lives rally in downtown Los Angeles. This led to interviews on Buzzfeed News and ABC 7 News, which, in turn, led to her being selected by Instagram for their #captureconfidence campaign, featuring teen girls who are using their talents to affect positive change. The campaign was launched on Good Morning America with the release of the book Confidence Code for Girls.

Arielle also sang at the National Die In Day rally in Los Angeles on June 12th, and at the Zero Hour Youth Climate March in Washington DC on July 21st. She also spoke with Jamie Margolin and Elsa Mengistu at the Pathway to Paris concert during the Global Climate Action Summit in September 2018.

The Fire, written and produced by Arielle, is dedicated to every person who has been affected by wildfires. Because of climate change, year-round fire seasons are the new norm. Hopefully, this song will help inspire people to work towards climate action!
