Studying English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of East Anglia, Isaac uploaded a self-produced Garageband demo to BBC Introducing in the Summer of 2015. The song in question was called Last Words, a dusty lament aided by the crackle and hiss of inexperience, and over a million plays later, its creator’s journey is about to get started. The track was picked up by the likes of Huw Stephens, Annie Mac, Zane Lowe and John Kennedy, and a slew of intro pieces in publications followed.
The years of choral practice instilled into that voice from an early age as a young member of Ealing’s Abbey Choir, resonates here with anxiety and wit. Never too much, never too forced. There’s emotion without the emoting. It’s the sound of a young artist with talent still raw, but what a talent it is!
