It was such a privilege to recently record with amazingly talented drummer, Alec Menge, a native of New York, for our upcoming album, Isabel and The Whispers 2 – WANDER, to be released next year.
We had all reunited in New York City just before recording for the album, with Octavio Padron on guitar and Scott Gleason on bass. It was so thrilling to make music together after such a challenging time as we have all been having with this pandemic.
This Isabel and The Whispers reunion goes down as one of the most special moments of my life.
Our reunion and recording session had been in the works for almost a year. However, down to the last detail, everything came together wonderfully for us, thank God, and a dream came true for our band this summer.
In case you didn’t know, not only is Alec the drumming force of our band, but also the de facto co-founder of our band, without whom maybe Isabel and The Whispers or our album would have never come into existence!
I give Alec a shout out in my recent music interview on a show, Rap it Out, now up on Spotify and other platforms, which you can listen to here and about which I will write more soon! (By the way, the Mexican reference is just a joke as I am not Mexican, lol!)
Check out this video below on Youtube where I interview Alec. He is a shy guy, so we kept it short! You can also check out these live rehearsal video clips of him playing on the “Aftersong,” “High Horse,” and “Josefina.” Or listen to him play on all of our tracks on our album, Isabel and The Whispers, on Spotify by clicking here.
