"Mirth Drive" by Sabel feels like a beautifully sad soundtrack to a moving movie

Mirth Drive, the second single off of Sabel's debut EP feels like a sad languid soundtrack to a moving movie about the ups and downs of love, life and how you transform during the journey. The folk strains feel classic and the supporting pedal steel sounds and heavy beat carry you away but it is Sabel's vocal performance that digs deep into your heart. Her soft and heavy tones, the lilt of her voice and the tilt of her melodies are lovely and affecting.

Press Notes:

Formally known as Isabella Rose, Sabel is currently attending her senior year in the Creative American Music program at the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music. She began studying piano at age 4, and first picked up a guitar in eighth grade. Since high school she has written, recorded, and performed a wide variety of music. Along with her love of writing comes her love of performing. First starting with solo performances, Isabella has played at many well-known venues such as The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, The Stephen Talkhouse, City Winery and many more, as well as opening for America’s Got Talent winner, Grace Vanderwaal. Recently, she booked and performed two headline dates at The Turning Point, NY with her newly formed all-female backup band.
Influenced by a wide variety of artists and genres, her repertoire is a mixture of deep, heartfelt ballads, uplifting sweet feel-good songs, and powerful alternative rock jams-each one staying true to herself and her vision.
