ISAIAH STEWART RELEASES GROOVE GARDEN

SALT LAKE CITY, July 16, 2010 / PR Newswire / – Jazz-funk drummer and worldwide recording artist Isaiah Stewart announces the release of his third album GROOVE GARDEN.

Adding pop, rock and hip-hop savvy to the jazz-funk mix, GROOVE GARDEN is an all-original album that features Isaiah’s powerful songwriting and explosive drumming that provides a foundation for the album’s deep thundering bass lines, warm keyboards, funky electric guitars, fire-hot jazz improvisation and sublimely soulful vocals.

After a decade of hard-hitting, edge-of-your-seat jazz-funk music, culminating in more than 500,000 mp3 downloads worldwide, the stakes are high for GROOVE GARDEN, but “high stakes” are what drive Isaiah’s passion for making infectious music . . . music that begins with one thing . . .

“Groove is everything to us drummers,” Isaiah says. “For us, music begins with heavy, funky danceable beats. And with this album I wanted to go even deeper with the grooves to plant more primal roots for a new garden . . . a garden where the diverse worlds of funk, jazz, soul, hip-hop, rock, classical and tribal music were able to grow and blossom in exciting new directions.”
