Bio

Isadoré is the electroinic singer-songwriter project of Isabelle Reynaud. Originally hailing from Townsville, North Queensland Isabelle moved down to Melbourne to originally study Musical Theatre at the VCA. Being a bit of the black sheep in that world Isabelle began singing in bands and exercising her love for writing. The love kept growing and over time turned into a full time passion for production which lead to the birth of Isadoré. A self-produced project with shades of Christine And The Queens, St Vincent and a dash of Kate Bush.

In early 2018, Isadoré was invited by the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity in Alberta, Canada to attend a 5 week residency writing and recording music inspired by classic feminist novel “Women Who Run with the Wolves” by Clarissa Pinkola Estés. This magical time spent in the Canadian Rockies fuelled the fire for Isadoré’s next release, a concept project comprised of 4 tracks uncovering the Wild Woman archetype of the feminine psyche.

The first single “No Illusion” is an unapologetic anthem inviting listeners to dance in the footsteps of their ancestors and delve into the mystique of introspective feminine folklore. Sonically, “No Illusion” is laced with entrancing harmonies and dreamy synths, characteristic of Isadoré’s upbeat, melodic prowess.

“No Illusion was always meant to be a sentimental summary of the whole book- the overall empowerment her words gave me when I was in Canada and how I found my ‘wild’ self within me.”

During her time in Canada, Isadoré was also invited to perform at Canadian Music Week in Toronto where she performed to her first major international audience.

Since being back on Australian soil, Isadoré has not slowed down; She has been involved with independent film scores, dance performance installations, and collaborations with other artists- most notably, her collaboration with artist Harry Fox on the track ‘Autumn’ which has been featured on Triple J.

I feel like Isadoré is going to be a force to reckon with. This track is epic and beautiful, and there is no illusion about that!
