Born in Mexico City, she arrived in Chicago at the tender age of three. Her love for music has been handed down from her father, Benjamin Gutierrez - a tenor that trained at the Conservatory of Music in Mexico City. He's helped lead her vocal training over the years.
Fast forward some years where she realized nothing else in life brings her more joy than music and she decided to pursue it as a lifelong career. She began by uploading videos to YouTube in which she covered popular songs in both English and Spanish.
Her diverse and bilingual repertoire paired with her unique voice is what caught the eyes and ears of local business owners and other local artists.
As the gigs and collaborations rolled in, she began working on her first studio EP - a Christmas album titled "First Christmas" which was released on all digital platforms in December of twenty sixteen.
One of her most life changing events to date came during her recent debut on national television where she competed in a singing competition called "Reina de la Cancion", which aired on Univision network in October 2019. She was a Top 24 finalist on this show.
This was a milestone in Arlette's career as she had the opportunity to meet some of the worlds most incredible producers, coaches and artists such as Daddy Yankee, Sergio George, Pedro Capo, Natti Natasha and Olga Tañon to name a few. She was also fortunate enough to forge new friendships and connections with some of the other contestants.
Another life changing moment was the day Arlette got scouted by the creative genius Jack Chicago from Friday Pop Café® - a music and multimedia production company founded by producer/songwriter Jack Chicago.
She is currently preparing for the release of her first major studio single scheduled in the summer of 2020.
Performing alongside talented musicians has played a big role in her musical growth, and over the years she has performed with local bands all around the Chicagoland area and neighboring states.
They've performed at various venues, weddings and festivals in Chicago and surrounding areas.
She has also been fortunate enough to meet and work with several great names in music.
Dennis "D WISE" Colon - a Chicago native reggaeton artist and producer that caught the eye of producer/label executive RUDY ACOSTA from THE LEGION RECORDS - a distributed label under WEA CORP in association with ATLANTIC RECORDS.
Together, they produced a track for Chicago’s very own DO OR DIE called "ROCK YO BODY" in which he is featured as a guest artist.
D-WISE has performed on the same stage with stars such as:
DADDY YANKEE, DON OMAR, TEGO CALDERON, ZION Y LENNOX, WISIN Y YANDEL, & IVY QUEEN.
Through the Chicago Music Group, they released their first studio single titled "Receta de Amor" in 2020, and are currently working on an LP scheduled for release in 2021.
Arlette is determined to continue writing and creating beautiful songs that touch and inspire the lives of those that follow and support her musical journey. She also hopes to inspire other independent artists to work hard to achieve the things they want in life.
She wants them to dare to dream, be tenacious and have the ferocity to never give up on their dreams.
But wait, there's more!
