Isobel is an award winning singer-songwriter originally from Salisbury, Wiltshire but now based in London, whose voice and songwriting has been compared to artists such as KT Tunstall and Bonnie Raitt. Isobel accompanies her singing with tuneful and percussive acoustic guitar, citing blues as her main musical influence. She also incorporates Folk, Country and pop into her music which gives her songwriting an unusual – yet infectious – edge.
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’.
Since then, Isobel has had a wide range of success singing all over the UK and internationally, in venues such as the Colton Hall, Bristol, The Bedford in London and Rampelyset, in Denmark honing her craft and developing a strong repertoire of self-penned songs.
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.
This has been followed by Isobel’s long awaited – newly released (23.03.2019) E.P ‘On My Own’ which boast a range of styles from Country, Blues, Folk and Pop . On My Own was launched at a sold out ticketed event in Wiltshire and also at the infamous Bedford in Balham.

The new record has been described by Rock-Regenernation‘ as: “a plethora of blues influences as well as a good sprinkling of country styles with Isobel’s fine vocals being the proverbial cherry on the cake.”
