Listen to clips from the new album here!

The Subject Tonight Is Love is the debut album of critically acclaimed musicians and long time friends Kate McGarry, Keith Ganz and Gary Versace.

On their first crowd funded project the trio reimagines beloved standards, sets music to the words of 14th century Sufi poet Hafiz, and dives into McGarry's catalog of heartfelt originals. The result is a fresh, cinematic approach to jazz that invites the listener to view the heart through many sides of life's prism: Spiritual, Filial, Romantic, Maternal, Fractured, Unconditional - LOVE.

The formidable talents of these GrammyTM nominated musicians are in full bloom on this ambitious outing. Ganz works with various guitar's as well as on bass (and occasionally drums!) while Versace moves fluidly between piano, electric keyboard, organ and accordion. Together they create a richly nuanced sonic canvas. McGarry's voice rings true throughout, painting pictures that penetrate and illumine the human journey.

Upon the release of The Subject Tonight Is Love, the trio will be touring and performing the music from this album
