Isabel Marcheselli is a singer, songwriter, pianist and multi-instrumentalist from New York, currently based in Westfield, Massachusetts. In addition to performing as a solo artist, she also plays with groups, including her band, Isabel and The Whispers.
The daughter of South American immigrants, Isabel overcame many obstacles in life on the way to finding her voice as a musical artist. Nevertheless, her father was an engineer who served NASA and always encouraged her to reach for the stars. Following her B.A. degree from Cornell University, Isabel attended Mannes School of Music and Hunter College, and worked on her major in music while also studying with renowned teachers, including pianist Xiayin Wang.
A gifted singer, musician, poet, and wordsmith, Isabel has musically crossed so many genres and her music continues to evolve and defy easy categorization. While she was trained as a classical musician, she can just as easily create music in mass-appealing genres such as pop and dance. Whether she performs solo concerts or hits the stage with her backing band, Isabel and The Whispers (Piano/vox/guitar - Isabel Marcheselli; Drums - Alec Menge; Guitar - Octavio Padron), Isabel can put her audience under a spell with her pure, heartfelt vocals and ambient piano music full of melody.
Isabel is also a member of Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI) who is regularly booked for concerts, private events, collaborative projects, music ministry, and much more.
Isabel's creative philosophy is to stay open and to stretch herself across new frontiers to keep things fresh and exciting for herself, her musical collaborators, and her audience.
Other striking facts about Isabel are that she is a certified piano teacher, has published a book of nature poetry and personal verse, Heart's Eye and has recently published a book of photography and original fine art, Unwinding Paths.
