Biography

"I love this record... Real effortless simplicity. Dark path is a great album"

Jamie Cullum - BBC Radio 2


"Beautiful, shimmering and wonderful... I highly recommend the album… a stunning new record"

Lauren Laverne - BBC Radio 6 Music


Isobel's music weaves a lyrical landscape teetering on the darker side of life with the gentle lilt of British Folk influences, soft crooner lullabies and soulful climaxes. In 2010 Isobel released her intimate debut album Cold Water Songs, receiving high praise and airplay from BBC Radio 3's Late Junction and BBC Radio Ulster. This was followed by her 2011 album Dark Path, which was featured on Radio 2 by Jamie Cullum and The Guardian's Music podcast. Isobel's third album In My Garden was released in December 2013, and received high praise from BBC Radio 6 Music's Lauren Lavern, and BBC Radio 2’s Jamie Cullum.

Isobel has also sung on three of Passenger's albums, and in June 2013 released The Sussex Sessions, a collaboration EP with Ruby Colley consisting of three reinterpretations of traditional folksongs. Live performances to date include Glastonbury's Acoustic stage, London's Proud Galleries and The Roundhouse, Cecil Sharp House and Belfast's Open House Music Festival. Isobel can also be spotted lurking about with a recording device, making sound installations in and about various landscapes, which you will find here.
