IsaacO is a Birmingham-based artist originally of Nigerian Descent, who is not averse to a mix of two different worlds. Combining his early Nigerian upbringing with his later English experience taking inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver and Coldplay, he has created “a sea of sound” that is unique and irresistible. His music is a fusion of soul, rock and pop animated by his deep captivating voice.
His debut release “Sea of Sound” released in September 2018 has been streamed over 400,000 times on Spotify alone featuring on editorial (One Week One Playlist) and personalised algorithmic playlists, Discover Weekly and Release Radar as well as over 5,000 other playlists. The release also culminated in a personal invite to Spotify UK HQ in London last year.
He has previously collaborated with Satin Jackets on their Gold-certified debut album Panorama Pacifico, with the song Keep Moving On amassing over 700,000 plays to date. He has supported multiple national touring acts Benjamin Francis Leftwich, Augustana, Billy Lockett, Joe Fox, Luke Concannon (of Nizlopi fame) among others. He has received continual support from BBC Introducing West Midlands and was also chosen as a winner of Rising Sounds 2017 at Roundhouse, London.
With an EP due in 2020, there is no stopping the heights that IsaacO can achieve. The EP has been produced by Theo Davis, whose previous work includes the UK Top 40 single Azonto by Fuse ODG.
