I first came across Orianthi when she appeared in This Is It along side Michael Jackson as his lead guitarist. At the time I had no idea who she was, all I knew was that she had some mad skillz on the guitar.
Then today, I discovered that she had her own singles and even a record deal with Geffen. Her first single “According to You”, just blows me away. Her clothing style is awesome and so is the blue sparkly guitar she plays.
Then there is “Shut Up and Kiss Me”:
Both of these singles can be found on her album Believe, which was released in October last year.
Then this amazing guitar piece with Steve Vai, which really shows off Orianthi’s skills:
She has also played with Adam Lambert and Carrie Underwood as their lead guitarist.
I think I have my first girl crush. Or the ultimate question by Rove McManus – “Who would you turn gay for?” Highly likely it would be Orianthi. I’m in the female version of guy love. I think what really struck me, is that I have never seen a female play a guitar like this before and I am in awe.
