Isabel Rose to Release New CD 'Trouble In Paradise' 9/16
What happens when you toss Katy Perry, Ann-Margret and Bette Midler into a blender? You get Isabel Rose.
Trouble in Paradise, the new CD from acclaimed singer Isabel Rose is a top-drawer musical event. Produced by Bob Rock (Michael Buble, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi, Metallica, Cher), it will be released on September 16th by BDG/RED, a division of Sony Music Entertainment.
Backed by a large, swinging orchestra with a modern pop sensibility, Trouble in Paradise is informed by 1960s Vegas. At turns sassy and brassy, sultry and sophisticated, and always with charm, Trouble in Paradise showcases Isabel's joyful exuberance and theatricality. Rose is a showgirl at heart and the recording features plenty of reinterpretations of American songbook and pop classics. It also features two previously unrecorded tracks including "Miracle," written by Alan Chang (Michael Buble's musical director and co-writer of several of Buble's top-charting singles).
The team behind Trouble In Paradise is a veritable who's who of music A-listers. In addition to Bob Rock's production, Trouble In Paradise was mixed by multiple Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge (Madonna, Cher, Adam Lambert, Michael Buble, Christina Aguilera, James Brown, and the list goes on). It was also mixed by the legendary, 19-time Grammy Award winner Al Schmitt. (In addition to engineering Frank Sinatra Duets album and Ray Charles' Genius Loves Company, Schmitt engineered both the Breakfast at Tiffany's soundtrack and the original Peter Gunn, which he has mixed, once again, for Rose.)
Trouble In Paradise also includes a remix of "Reflections" created by Frankie Knuckles (Ariana Grande, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Diana Ross) and Eric Kupper (Kylie Minogue, Usher, Miley Cyrus, and many others). It was their final collaboration before Knuckles passed away. The remix will be available on iTunes and Amazon on July 29th.
The New York Times has praised Rose's music, saying, "Ms. Rose belts out the songs with appeal and does an impressive job with big production numbers," while the San Francisco Gate said, "Rose is more than a singer or a comedian -- she's an all out entertainer." JazzTimes cheers, "Rose goes stiletto-to-stiletto with Ann-Margret."
