On View - Mar 11, 2013 - Mar 11, 2013

From writing her first song at the age of six, to being discovered and playing alongside her idols Carlos Santana and Steve Vai early in her career, Orianthi has made an enduring mark on the music industry. While many were introduced to this gifted guitar goddess when she played the GRAMMY Awards in 2009 as part of Carrie Underwood’s band, it was being selected for Michael Jackson’s ill-fated This Is It Tour that exposed her to mainstream audiences. In the Fall of 2009, Orianthi released According To You, her first solo single, which went platinum in the U.S. and abroad. More than just a phenomenal guitarist, this success showed she had serious vocal chops as well. Please join us on the eve of her new album release, the Dave Stewart produced, Heaven In This Hell, as we welcome Orianthi to the Clive Davis Theater for the latest installment of our Great Guitars series. Hear Orianthi discuss her musical influences, how she developed her craft and what’s next in her already-impressive career. After the interview, Orianthi will take audience questions and perform a selection of songs. The event will be moderated by Vice President of The GRAMMY Foundation and MusiCares Scott Goldman, a great guitarist himself.
