Meet Bianca Love Singer/Trumpeter/Guitarist
"U.S.-based singer-songwriter Bianca Love delivers a poignant offering in the shape of the quaint “Time (Reprise).” The track also includes fantastic drum work by Marcus Gilmore. In a statement, Love said, “This reprise not only revisits the cherished composition of ‘Time’ but also artfully bridges eras, fusing the timeless essence of a 1960s ballad with the contemporary energy of a live production.”

Bianca Love hails from the vibrant city of New Orleans, where her musical journey began. Influenced by a multitude of genres, including the music of Charlie Parker, blues, soul, and the traditional sounds of New Orleans, Bianca draws inspiration from legendary figures such as Betty Carter, Sarah Vaughan, Clifford Brown, Etta Jones, Dinah Washington, Miles Davis, Nicholas Payton, Mahalia Jackson, and countless others.
A professional musician since the age of 16, Bianca ventured beyond borders to perform in India's major metropolitan cities—Calcutta, Mumbai, and Pune—immersing herself in the blues. Her return to New Orleans in 2017 marked a pivotal moment in her career as she continued her musical education under the mentorship of pianist Jesse Mcbride (Tulane Jazz Professor and leader of Jesse Mcbride and the Next Generation) and trumpeter Ashlin Parker (Ellis Marsalis, Trumpet Mafia).
Bianca has shared the stage and recorded with a host of revered musicians, including Maurice Brown, Marcus Gilmore, Ben Williams, Takahiro Izumikawa, Lawrence Fields, Michael Ode, Joe Blaxx, Kermit Ruffins, and a host of others who have enriched her musical tapestry. In New York City, the illustrious Johnny O'Neal bestowed upon her the title of his "blues daughter" after hearing her performance at Small's.
In 2020, Bianca relocated to Los Angeles, where she organized a weekly jam in the heart of the city, fostering a sense of community and musical camaraderie. Today, she calls New York City home, continuing to captivate audiences with her unwavering passion for music. This past fall (November 2023), Bianca was among the five finalists in the Sarah Vaughn International Jazz Vocal Competition held at NJPAC in Newark, NJ.
