Musician Aisha Bassett Releases Acoustic Video

August 23, 2015

Bermudian composer Aisha Bassett, also known by her stage name Aisha NuSound, has released a new live acoustic singer, with an accompanying music video for the song ‘Abba Father.’

‘Abba Father’ was written and composed by Ms. Bassett and performed by Femi Okunsanya.

Ms. Bassett previously said, “One of my biggest musical influences is my father, Andre Bassett. He started playing at the age of five and still plays now.”

“He was the first person who introduced me to the piano. He used to play in some Jazz clubs in Canada when he was there at university.

“We often played together as I was growing up and I remember sitting by his side at the piano when I was younger and couldn’t yet play and wanting to play like him.”

“His passion and love for the piano was contageous and he inspired me to want to start playing and to grow in my playing skills and diversify the techniques I used to play. I’ve had a love and appreciation for music for as long as I can remember. I started playing the piano at 10 and I wrote my first song soon after at age 11.

“I was taught by Eustace Jones who fostered a love for the piano and an appreciation for music. At my request, he would often play a song in my piano lesson book for me before I had learned it. If I liked how it sounded we chose that one as my ‘assignment’ for the week, if not we moved on to the next song.

“NuSound represents the fact that since I rededicated my life to Christ I’ve been making a new sound on the piano. This sound reflects my heart’s desire to transparent and free with how I play the piano, as I play straight from my heart and soul.”
