“Jazz is my go-to music; my comfort food,” says Isabel Stover. “As vocal artists there is a need to bear our souls to the world, but at the same time make our music accessible to people. Which is why all these other musical influences that I bring to the table must inform what I do, from my choice in songs to how I sing a particular lyric.” Anyone who listens to Stover’s recording, Her Own Sweet World, released in 2012 would agree. The debut CD is a carousel of jazz standards serving up original arrangements of samba, swing and waltz with a side of blues and pop. Stover’s perfectly balanced tone and mastery of phrasing is the icing. In fearlessly deconstructing musical compositions to their emotional core, Stover’s indelible presence shines through regardless of genre or style.
