From Shania Twain to Chicago to Beatles: The Isaacs Explain their Song Choices for their New Album

The Isaacs

The Isaacs will be releasing their brand new album The American Face, on Aug. 13 through their label, House of Isaacs. Produced by Ben Isaacs and Bryan Sutton, The American Face features a mix of both new material and covers of classics like "More Than Words" by Extreme, "You're The Inspiration" by Chicago, "We Can Work It Out" by The Beatles, and "Forever and For Always" by Shania Twain.

The Issacs hope that their new album will capture the various the diversity of the American culture. In an interview with Tennessee Star, the band revealed, "Our family story is unique because I am an immigrant. My parents and I came from Poland because of World War II. They were Holocaust survivors and they came to New York City when I was two years old. I became an American citizen when I was nine with my parents at Ellis Island. We worked very hard to become American and I am proud of it."

Isaacs continued, "We may not be pretty. We have different values and ideas and don't always get along, but we are the American face. We are every culture, every religion, every color skin, and every idea. This is what makes America what it is."

The Isaacs also hope to capture the diversity of styles of music in America, from folk to rock to country to Gospel. The song choices reflect this. "All the cover songs on this album are part of our history. We did a Beatles' song because I was a Beatle maniac. 'We Can Work It Out' is so timely for today. We did a song by Shania Twain which was one of Becky's favorites. The song 'Turn, Turn, Turn' by the Byrds hasn't been covered in such a long time is so relevant for today."

The proceeds from the album will benefit The Bridge Ministry, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in Nashville, which exists to alleviate the suffering of underprivileged children, the homeless, and the working poor by providing life-sustaining resources and a message of hope.
