Biography

Adelaide, Australia (1999 – present)

Orianthi Panagaris (born 22 January 1985 in Adelaide, South Australia), better known simply as Orianthi, is a Greek Australian musician, singer-songwriter and guitarist who has released 3 albums (Violet Journey (2007), Believe (2009) and Heaven in This Hell (2013)) and one EP (Fire (2011)) as a solo artist. She is best known for her virtuosic guitar skills, displayed while being Michael Jackson’s lead guitarist for his ill-fated “This Is It” concert series, and as the lead guitarist in Alice Cooper’s live band. To date her first single “According To You” has been her most notable hit.

Her debut album “Violet Journey”, was officially released in 2007 through Universal Music (it was self released earlier in 2005), in which she composed all the material, contributing guitar, vocals and drums on most cuts. She also produced and mixed the final product at her home studio.

Her breakthrough came with her debut single (which is off her second album “Believe”) “According To You” which peaked at #3 in Japan, #8 in Australia and #17 in the US. Her second album, “Believe”, received a worldwide release in late 2009 (the album was re-released on 8 June 2010 as “Believe (II)”, which included four new songs).

On 12 October 2011, the 5 track EP Fire (produced by Dave Stewart), was released as an iTunes download. All 5 tracks would later be released again on Heaven in This Hell.

Her third album Heaven in This Hell was released on 12 March 2013. The album featured Orianthi moving away from pop rock leanings of Believe, and towards a somewhat rawer sound. Orianthi cited modern country and blues as the main inspirations on the album’s sound.
