Bio

Isabel Marcheselli is a singer, 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. 

As an artist with a singular background, Isabel loves to make music that genuinely connects with the audience on a deeper level.  Isabel’s mother was a fashion designer, and her father was an engineer at NASA.  Isabel overcame many obstacles in life on the way to finding her musical voice and identity.  Following her graduation 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.

Over the course of her artistic career, Isabel’s music has crossed so many genres and continues to defy easy categorization.  Isabel has a background in classical music, yet she can just as easily compose mass-appealing songs in genres such as pop, folk, and dance.  Whether she performs solo concerts or hits the stage with her trusted 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.

A songwriter, composer, arranger, producer and member of Broadcast Music Incorporated (BMI), Isabel is regularly booked for concerts, private events, collaborative projects and much more.  She is also the founder of Marcheselli Music Studio, a multi-functional music studio that offers piano lessons to budding artists.

Isabel's creative philosophy is to stay open and to stretch herself across new frontiers to keep things fresh and interesting for herself, her fans, her and fellow musicians.

Other fun facts about Isabel are that she has published a book of nature poetry and personal verse, Heart's Eye and has recently published a book of photography, Unwinding Paths.
