Big news for Orianthi from November 2006: She finally got signed...with Geffen/Universal Records...congrats from all of us at Scratch Pad!!!
Orianthi is an official Paul Reed Smith guitar endorsee and in 2004 was invited to perform at that prestigious guitar maker’s 20th anniversary celebrations. She has traded guitar licks on stage with Steve Vai, Carlos Santana and Dave Hole. Santana once said that Orianthi is “an angel that can play guitar... a lady who has an incredible future”, and saw enough potential in her to have her signed to his personal management company. The Australian music products industry was recently introduced to Orianthi’s amazing fretwork at the Australian Music Association Convention on the Gold Coast, where she opened the Gala Awards Dinner in front of 600 people.
