Los Angeles - When the fingers of Isha Love glide
across the piano, a dazzling cascade of melody rushes forth spraying the
atmosphere like the mist from a waterfall. "Jars of Waters," her new
offering, is a fluid tapestry of 14 luscious piano solos that pour sweet liquid
libations for the soul. With ten gospel-tinged jazz originals and four unique
interpretations of traditional spiritual hymns, Isha Love's "Jars of
Waters" is a tall refreshing glass to drink from.
A classically trained pianist, Isha Love emerges
on the music scene as a source of "living water." With "Jars of
Waters," Isha hopes to share and spread ever-abundant love. The
inspirational solo performances on the CD transcend genres, riding the waves of
jazz, classical, gospel, worship and pop. Whether she is surfing across the
keys, like a boogie board bouncing above the ocean or rafting quietly down the
river's bank, tickling the ivories like a paddle propelling the current, her
compositions shower light and shimmer with the presence of love.
Isha reveals that she only composes when she
feels led by the Spirit. In fact, each track from "Jars of Waters"
emerged from a series of compelling visions she believes God used to guide her
musical journey. Song titles like "Rain On Me," "I've Got Peace

jars represented the songs that I have within me, that are waiting to be filled
– and told me that the water that fills the jars are His Spirit. During the

becomes a completed song anointed by Him. Each song is one of these 'jars of
Growing up in South Korea, Isha began playing
piano in kindergarten. In high school, she realized that music was her life's
calling. Though proficient in classical music, she gravitated towards jazz and
moved to the U.S. to attend the Berklee College of Music in Boston as a jazz
and piano performance major. During that time, a friend introduced her to a
church whose congregation was largely Jamaican and Isha began playing gospel
music for their weekly services. Isha then started playing more worship
services at numerous African American churches, where she developed a unique
jazz/gospel style. She continues performing at many different churches and
venues to this day.
Upon moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career,
she quickly became a versatile full time session player and performance artist
and booked gigs for TV commercials for companies like Honda and Nike. Andrea
Crouch, Kim Burrell, Frank McComb, Lisa McClendon and the female contemporary
urban jazz collective Jazz In Pink, featuring keyboardist Gail Jhonson and
violinist Karen Briggs, are just a few of the talents she has shared the stage
