Singer songwriter Isabelle Brown is back with new track ‘Places’, marking the first taste of new music from her since her mixtape ‘Only Having A Laugh’.
‘Places’ is an affecting kodak-moment of those times in your life that truly shape you. Capturing moments full of warmth and optimism with a blend of youthful naivety and old-soul wisdom.
Speaking about the song, Isabelle says: “It’s about somewhere that you don’t have to pretend to be someone you’re not. A place where you are loved and accepted and can be who you want to be.”
Some of her musical inspirations include the rich emotions of Nina Simone and the energy of Tina Turner. These influences shaped Isabelle’s mature perspective and deep found artistry from old-school R&B to hip-hop.
Her debut mixtape ‘Only Having A Laugh, was written and recorded when she was just twelve. Isabelle story thus far is not that of your typical precocious teen star-in-waiting: hard graft, grit and vulnerability, those core values of true soul music, underpin her powerhouse vocals.
Born and bred in Brighton, she wrote her first love song at the age of seven. Something she says: “when you think back is an absolute laugh. I’d never even kissed a boy but thought I was the number one romance guru”.
As a result, she has spent the last few years developing her craft. Singing, writing, performing or recording every weekend .Along with the support of her friends and family.
Mixing restless innocence with innate musical maturity, ‘Places’ is not just a vivid portrait of inner strength and self-confidence, but also an affecting reminder of those places Isabelle‘s Brown talent is surely set to take her in the future.
