hmv.com tips... Jamie Isaac

Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you rising electro folkster Jamie Isaac and his gorgeous voice...

 

Who Is He?

The 19-year old has been recently tracks since late 2011, but has only really caught people's attention in the last six months with some superb live shows across the UK's toilet circuit and some knockout releases. 

 

 

What Does He Sound Like?

James Blake is probably a good starting point, but there's something richer in Isaac's voice, something that even harks back to the likes of Cat Stevens and Marvin Gaye. But instrumentally is stripped back and cold, full of clicky beats, gentle shimmery keyboards and layered pianos. 

 

Why Should I Be Excited?

If you got really excited when you heard Jamie Woon's early singles, full of mystery, darkness and wonder, then Isaac is the next level up. He's outstanding. 



Can I Hear Something?

Of course you can, his recent single 'She Dried' is below for you and you can check out his other singles in our digital store by clicking here.
