Girl Blue is the moniker of singer-songwriter/producer Arielle O’Keefe. Compared often to the likes of Laura Marling, Bonnie Raitt, Carole King and Jeff Buckley, she is a powerhouse vocalist with the rare ability to write songs that both catch the ear and touch the heart. Girl Blue’s first single, “Fire Under Water” was released completely independently, and was immediately recognized by Spotify on their “New Music Friday” playlist. It has since been featured in Visit Las Vegas’ viral commercial “Now and Then”, and sits comfortably at over 2.5 million streams on Spotify alone. Spotify embraced Girl Blue once again with the release of her cover of Fleetwood Mac’s hit song “Dreams”, giving her another spot on “New Music Friday”. O’Keefe is a rare and genuine talent, most especially shining as a live performer, where she has the unique ability to silence a room with just her voice and a guitar. Catch her live in Brown’s Walloomsac Taproom from 6:30 to 9 pm.
