Isobel is an award winning singer-songwriter in London UK who’s style is heavily influenced by the Blues scene that Isobel grew up with, as well as Wistful Americana and Country.
Isobel started originally with piano lessons at age 4 and then had her first musical adventure at the Salisbury Blues Jam, playing saxophone at the young age of just 9. A few years down the line, Isobel studied at Tech Music Schools in London and received a HND in Vocal Performance and Cert He in Pop Music Practice. She also went on to win the Tech Music School University ‘Songwriting Showcase’ receiving the award of ‘Song of the Year’ with her self penned bluesy original ‘I wont.’ This award meant she went on to perform at the O2 Shepards Bush Empire with a full band for ‘Tech Music Schools Graduation 2012’.
Isobel’s self-penned songs have given her a wide range of success singing all over the UK and internationally in venues such as the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London and Rampelyset, Denmark which has given Isobel a chance to build her reputation and fan base. This has also led to Isobel being a nominee in the Graham Steel Music Awards in 2020 and 2021 for ‘Best Female Artist’ as well as being top 15 Category Finalist in the Blues & Roots Radio International Songwriting Competition with her song ‘More Than Words.’
Isobel independently released her Debut EP in 2013, which was recorded with Curved Air legend – Michael Wedgwood at his studios in Denmark. This received radio interest from not only local radio stations but also BBC Introducing UK – the South.
