With her personal experiences in love serving as muse for her songs that cover an array of human emotions, Nash began writing for Touched By Love five years ago. It’s the jazz singer-songwriter’s second album, an intimate six-song acoustic set that she produced with Grammy-winning jazz pianist Edsel Gomez (Dee Dee Bridgewater) serving as musical director. After achieving a Billboard No. 1 most added for her adult contemporary single “I Wanna Be Loved By You,” from her debut album, she struggled to find her sound and direction for her sophomore outing. She turned to composers Dr. Graham Keir (guitar) and Dr. Octavio Vazquez (piano) to help create and develop her musical vision. Gomez tailored a warm and elegant instrumental soundscape around the award-winning jazz chanteuse’s sensual, breathy vocals that emit longing, fragility, heartache, hope and bliss, guiding Nash to cozy acoustic jazz settings. Grammy-winning percussionist Luisito Quintero (Chick Corea) and bassist Dave Baron (Herbie Hancock) anchor the rhythmic grooves while Grammy-nominated accordionist Alex Meixner adds vital ambiance that fosters organic Polish-European accents, making Touched By Love a multicultural listening experience.
