Gianna Isabella Drops, “Feel The Same”

by The Alchemist

Every voice carries and relays a story.

Gianna Isabella learned this as a child in New Jersey. Upon discovering her impressive vocal range as a kid, Gianna developed a keen intuition, powerful presence, natural empathy, and songwriting eloquence. Ascending to the Top 10 of American Idol Season 15 and captivating an audience of millions around the world, the New Jersey-born singer and songwriter prepared herself to tell an unforgettable tale in 2020.

Surrounded by music since childhood, her late grandfather Harvey Kaplan co-founded sixties pop sensation Spiral Starecase, renowned for the hit “More Today Than Yesterday.” Meanwhile, her mother—a.k.a. Brenda K. Starr—rose to the forefront of the eighties freestyle movement with smashes such as “I Still Believe” and “What You See Is What You Get.” Mom even brought a young Gianna on stage to sing during dozens of shows.

Her newest release is titled, “Feel The Same,” and it is one of our favorite tracks we’ve heard recently. It begins with some very rhythmic guitar chords leading into some smooth vocals. The chorus has an upbeat vibe that combines a sharp bass with an incredible amount of energy and passion. We found ourselves singing this track hours after listening to it around the house. Check out the video below.
