Born into a musical family, Isaac developed a passion for music at an early age. His first
instrument; his voice, is soulful, dynamic, and spans an incredible range.
While touring as a percussionist and vocalist with roots group Nina’s Brew, Isaac self-funded
and released his debut album, Human Being, produced by Christopher Hawthorn.
The ten-song collection of instantaneously catchy hooks, and relatable lyricism garnered him
the title of Vermont’s “Best Pop Artist” by Seven Days Magazine in 2019.
Having relocated to Rome, NY, Isaac continues to perform regularly and released singles “Ready to be Loved,” and “All I Need” in early 2020.
