ade ishs is a composer and a pianist currently residing in Melbourne, Australia. He was born in 1978 in Bandung, Indonesia. He cannot remember when he played the piano for the first time, but he is sure that he was not even 10 years old at that time. Actually, his first instrument was the pianica. He started composing when he was about 12 years old. Before that he had already been involved in various public performances.
From 1982 to 2000, he studied with many teachers. Among them is Peter Ferdinandus, under whose tutelage he studied music theory, history, and classical piano performance since 1991.
During his study at the University of Indonesia (UI) in 1995 to 2001, he joined the Ensemble Band, the embryo of the current Gadsby, a Pat Metheny cover band, where he is the pianist/keyboardist. Together with the band, he performed in various functions, mostly those organised by UI students. Until he finished his study, he had become a regular performer in UI, notably on orientation periods and faculty graduations. He also performed with Aning Katamsi, a renowned Indonesian singer.
In 2002, ade moved to Melbourne and soon met the local talents there. He composed Unity in Diversity (also in the Little Butterfly album) a theme song for World Week 9, an international student event at RMIT. He met Sandra Bogerd. Together with Yugo Isal, they formed the Mixed Up jazz trio. ade also performed together with Dexter and the Band, Mosaic, and ROCS.
During ade's trip to Indonesia in 2006, three members of the Ensemble Band, Djati Rekso Wibowo, Gupta Mahendra, and himself met and had a reunion jam session. Yugo Isal, who had returned to Indonesia, joined them and thus Gadsby was born. They performed in public, most notably in Kemayoran Jazz Community meet-ups.

Ade Ishs’s first solo disc, “Visions,” is a compilation of relaxing contemporary piano pieces. It is one thing to just play the piano, but it is another to give it life and Ade Ishs has done just that. Ishs’s ability to demonstrate the expressive and emotional melodies throughout this album is clearly heard. Dreamy and pure, “Morning Vision” possesses wonderful rolling runs as Ishs’s fingers gracefully glide over the keys, never missing a single one. Listeners will be able to hear the great dynamic balance on “Soil” as bass tones boldly hold the harmony while upper tones are strong and contoured. This album is well-produced, as the acoustic piano is clean and crisp while every nuance is defined. Ade Ishs’s “Visions” is a wonderful album featuring soothing acoustic piano selections, and is definitely well-worth listening to.
