Iskar D’Abrel is Pop/Rock songwriter based in California. With deeply introspective lyrics and songwriting inspired by great acts of the 70’s and 80’s, D’Abrel bravely explores all aspects of the human experience. Like so many before him, D’Abrel found his first inspiration in the wake of a heart wrenching breakup. Music was a way to soothe his pain and quiet his suffering. By pouring his emotions into his music, D’Abrel creates a world where listeners can feel accepted, understood, and valued. The artist’s pain is transformed into a vehicle for self discovery. What is really important? What is the purpose of life? There are no easy answers for these questions, but clearly Iskar has spent many long hours contemplating them and turning them into art.

D’Abrel’s first full length album is called “Lacrimal Sea”. The title refers to an ocean split in half; one side wild and gloomy, the other serene and beautiful. It is a fitting image for an album that explores tumultuous topics such as politics, religion, philosophy, and love. Evocative and experimental, the ten tracks are reminiscent of Peter Gabriel, The Cult, and Sting, while retaining the individuality of it’s creator’s musical vision.

Outside of music, Iskar is a full time psychology professor and author. He has published two psychology textbooks, as well as two science fiction/fantasy novels (The One That I Am, and Beyond the Wheel of History) both of which are available for purchase on Amazon.
