Making It Up As I Go Along
There really is no more appropriate title for Isahrai Azaria's debut solo album than Making It Up As I Go Along. Her path, musically, spiritually and geographically has meandered, stopped, started, switched back and come full circle time and again. Isahrai is a girl who loves making plans and making lists - she even has a list of lists she hopes to make - but it seems that the universe's big life lesson for her is to embrace spontaneity and to let go of everything but those beliefs she holds most dear. Those beliefs can be summed up simply as this: "Sing for joy, live for love and work for peace." With this album, Isahrai has embraced her desire to pump as much goodness out into the world as possible. Each of the 9 tracks contains hopeful messages, sweet layered harmonies and just a wee bit of nonsense. Whether she's singing about her complicated faith, illness, human rights or bumblebees, Isahrai's journey is improvisation at it's sweetest and will give you a reason to smile along, sing along and start making it up right along with her.
