Isabel writes and performs original songs, often collaborating with singer/songwriter Cara Bonnett (keyboard, vocals) and Tom Ed White (viola, vocals). She also covers lesser-known songs by well-loved singer/songwriters, from acoustic folk and country traditions to the artists of today. Some of her inspirations include Nanci Griffith, Emmylou Harris, James Taylor, and Neil Young. Isabel’s sets comprise some songs you’ll recognize and many you won’t, but you’ll enjoy them all.Follow ivtaylor
Spring has gotten off to a great start, and it’s going to get even better! I had a wonderful opportunity to sing at Pinnacle View‘s women’s beach retreat at Trinity Center in Pine Knoll Shores in late March. What a supportive and gracious group – they brought me to tears when they started singing along to “Making My Way Back to Me!” Such a gift. Many thanks to Elizabeth Trinkaus for inviting me.
Bistro-by-the-Sea in Morehead City asked me to perform during Toast to the Coast week, and it felt great to sing some gems I hadn’t had an opportunity to play in a long while. Thanks to owner Libby Eaton for inviting me back (date TBD).
Last year I sang at Akai Hana in Morehead City, and thanks to owner Bob Honeycutt I recently had another opportunity. I loved singing in the relaxed atmosphere for a very friendly and appreciative group. It looks like I’ll be playing there again during Memorial Day weekend; stay tuned!
I continue to be amazed by the reception my music receives, and am so grateful for every opportunity to share it with an audience. Please check the Dates page for upcoming spring performances, which will include Cara Bonnett, Tom Ed White, and special guest cellist Janet Hadler.Follow ivtaylor
