ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Isabel and The Whispers, the band, hailed from New York City and has put out folk-inspired pop music influenced by artists ranging from Aimee Mann to Astrud Gilberto. Listeners might also hear echoes of artists like Suzanne Vega, The Cranberries, Sarah McLachlan, Karen Carpenter, Judy Collins, and Dido. On this album, the band likes to paint from a free-flowing palette of bittersweet melodies and bare instrumentals that bring out Isabel's pure and delicate singing voice. Their songs are dreamy, soulful, atmospheric, and inspiring as described by fans.

In Isabel’s own words, here is a story behind the making of their album:

“On a sunny, spring day, I was talking with our band drummer, Alec, trying to draw up reasons as to why we should make an album. We had gotten together a few good songs, and it’d be a road not taken. But Alec just looked at me, his eyes twinkling, and said, 'You don’t need a reason.' So it was then that my resolve to make an album crystallized, especially after Octavio joined us on guitar. We all went to a dimly-lit underground studio in Williamsburg to get these songs recorded.

Like love, it took time. Now, finally, our album sees the light of day. There are songs on here like “Dot to Dot,” “Princess” and “Aftersong” that are intimate song-poems that I wrote for the piano before our band got together. Other songs like “Josefina,” “Dancing” and “Bird-Man” share my joy and enchantment with early band life. It made me misty to write “Aftersong,” “Do You Have to See Me Cry” and “High Horse” because they were so cathartic. On the whole, themes we touch on in our songs include love, the inner child, dreams (“Bird-Man,” for instance, is a song that pulls from my dream journal), painting (as a side note, the album cover is an original painting of mine), family dysfunction, and music-making (“Josefina” is an ode to the singers and storytellers in everyone).

Really, my bandmates and I were each our own planets in musical space before we inter-collided and left a stardust of songs in our tracks with this CD. It’s our prayer that you will enjoy it and perhaps let it thaw any corners of your life that need a little sunlight, a little starlight, and a lot of heartsong.”

I'm enjoying this easy-listening music from my laptop's CD player...Isabel has a beautiful voice (I see I'm not the first to say so).

PS I found out she composes her own songs, and credits her inspirations to God. Let her music inspire you...

A great work of art!
Love this CD! It's a real treat for sore ears that I play on repeat. Some songs on here are breathtaking, they seem to continue long after they stop. Ever hear them live? They're awesome. Isabel doesn't shy away from writing about a variety of subjects ranging from love...to the pain of abuse...to God, and creates with her band a beautiful tapestry of song that's personal and profound.

I went to her CD release party this past summer and that performance really brought out the flavor of these songs. You really got caught up in the music. The performance makes you want the CD without hearing it first. Isabel\'s lyrics and music are genuinely heartfelt and meaningful and you feel her connection with the audience. It isn\'t disingenuous like artists that have \"made it big.\" Kudos to her backing band, as well.

Excellent CD!
I love Isabel's CD, and find it actually very relaxing to listen to. Isabel's music lets me escape a busy day while still sitting at my desk. I agree with the other reviewers about how wonderfully haunting her tunes are. I think Isabel and the Whispers has a great future as a band, mainly because there's so much evident passion in the way they create and perform.
