“We were blown away by [Isabel’s] songs and their stories, and moved by the themes and wordcrafting, accompanied by her excellent guitar playing and striking vocals. This was truly a unique experience and one we’ll look back on, saying we knew her before her well deserved fame! Thanks for a night to remember!”
– Gary Heinze and Debbie Fox, patrons, Stillwaters Supper & Songs, Marshall, VA

“…A new voice that is confident and pure and original songs that are assured and authentically delivered. Disarming and vulnerable like a Nanci Griffith, seasoned and rich like a Mary Chapin Carpenter….”
– Erik Balkey, Hudson Harding Music

A songwriter’s songwriter, with deep roots in the folk tradition….Isabel’s moving lyrics ride perfectly on top of waves of acoustic guitar. Her vocals, tender and somewhat haunting, echo the truth of her insights on life, love, and the human condition.
– Kirk Ridge, North Carolina Songwriters Co-op

We hear a lot of acts here, and Isabel’s voice is one of the most beautiful we’ve heard!
– Greg Lewis, owner, Pittsboro Roadhouse, Pittsboro, NC
