Brighton native Isabelle Brown has announced her new EP, ’03’ set for February 7th release via True Panther & AWAL/Kobalt. The four-song collection recorded by Isabelle between the ages of 12-14 creates a world of its own fusing orchestral, hip hop, R&B and soul underpinned by Isabelle’s striking vocals.
Today, the “perfect old-soul-teen” (Milk) released new jam “What U Waiting 4” the second single from ’03.’
Isabelle Brown is an old soul trapped in the body of a fearless fifteen-year-old. Her 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. Inspired by the rich emotions of Nina Simone and the force-of-nature energy of Tina Turner, her mature perspective and deep found artistry is reminiscent of the old-school R&B influences found in A Tribe Called Quest.
The singer-songwriter’s curious and refreshing contemporary twist on these classic sounds is explored across her first mixtape ‘Only Having A Laugh,’ released in February 2018. The seven-song body of work relishes on love and laughter–themes that continue to take charge in Isabelle’s music.
