Shut Up & Kiss Me – Orianthi
Orianthi has just released her second single, “Shut Up & Kiss Me“. You can listen to the song above and it’s nows available now on iTunes.
Orianthi will be opening for Daughtry at the University of Illnois on April 18th, and will perform as part of the Hangout Fesitval in Gulf Shores, AL in May. Keep checking back to Orianthi.com or her Myspace page for all your Ori performance news and additional updates.
On January 26th, the same day This Is It, the Michael Jackson film that showcased Orianthi’s incredible guitar skills to the world, was released on DVD, Orianthi’s debut album Believe was been re-released to include a bonus track, “Find It,” exclusively on iTunes.
The 24 year old shredder who has played with the likes of Steve Vai, Carlos Santana and Michael Jackson is out to prove that she’s not just an amazing guitarist, luckily for us, she’s got a lot more in her. Aside from her guitar-heroing she also writes her own music and sings and it’s hard to say which she’s best at but you be the judge.
After a whirlwind few months following the release of Believe and This Is It, Orianthi isn’t about to slow down any time soon. With her debut single “According To You” #10 at top 40 radio, and her album sitting at #2 on the Billboard New Artist chart, she’s been hitting up the day and night talk shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Ellen DeGeneres.
Orianthi recently debuted her new music video for “Highly Strung,” a blistering guitar duet between she and legendary guitarist Steve Vai, a long-time friend and mentor to the 24-year-old Australian. In the video the two phenoms face each other in a guitar show-down of epic proportions. Check it out here or below:
Finally, for fans in the Los Angeles area, Orianthi will be hosting a free all-ages concert and CD signing at the Hard Rock Cafe outside Universal Studios on Friday, February 5th at 8:30 pm. Space is limited, so plan ahead for this unique opportunity! Visit the Hard Rock website for more details, and stay tuned to Orianthi.com for additional updates.
For fans of Orianthi in New York City and surrounding areas, the guitar goddess will be performing a free show next Thursday, December 10th at the Union Square Best Buy in NYC. The concert will begin at 6:30 pm, and Orianthi will be signing autographs and meeting fans after her performance. Click here for additional details.
Orianthi is featured in the current print issue of Rolling Stone and in Guitar Edge magazine, while “According to You,” the first single from her major label debut Believe, has recently made a quite a splash on pop radio (watch the video here). Believe is available for download on iTunes, and be sure to visit Orianthi.com for more information and updates from this rising star.
