Bio

Having spent most of his teen years playing music, 17 year old Isaac has grown into a versatile and talented songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, with a deep passion and understanding of the art. He continues to challenge himself with new ideas and sounds, and breaks ground for himself with his playing and songwriting

Each new day breathes a new idea and obstacle for Isaac and his music. He is so grateful to be able to do what he loves everyday, whether it's playing the guitar, drums, or a whole new instrument all together, writing a brand new song, or studying at Box Hill Institute Of Music, at which he hones his musical craft and tries his hardest to better himself everyday. Isaac have also been making waves with his band "IV Dante", a dynamic pop-rock trio fronted by an even more talented songwriter. As a band, they work very effectively together, and are ready to take on the music industry with their infectious tunes, and energetic live shows

Isaac is not just a solo guy either. He prefers to team up with someone when writing and recording songs, whether its his band, his family, or his friends. Combined with other talented musicians, he is able to create something that is much better, and created faster that what he can do by himself. That’s not to say he’s only restricted to working with others, he can very well record entire songs by himself with little help, and although he’s not the brightest singer, he still tries his best sometimes and makes for something really great. “Christmas Time’, is a great example of how he can collaborate with his family to make a great song that can be enjoyed by anyone. The song was written when his grandma asked to make an entire Christmas album, but obviously that couldn’t be done well enough in time, but we still got a great Christmas tune out of the challenge. This song is also a great example of how he works alone, as he created and recorded the majority of the instrumentation by himself, and with the help of a few vocalists and co-writers, they can make something really special and memorable. Isaac is also a bit of a workaholic with his music, he enjoys keeping busy with album reviews, covers, and he's always coming up with new songs and ideas. He's always keen to try new things and work with anyone with a similar work ethic as him

Is this what the inside of a security guard's head sounds like while they're on duty? I like it. Funky, groovy and there's time to catch my breath.
