NYC songstress Isa has released her Mirrors Vol. 1 EP, a deeply-personal project and labor of love that took over three years to curate.
“It’s an introspective look into my experiences as a young woman during that time frame (learning to navigate the music industry without losing myself and my focus, being broke and financially unstable, tumultuous relationships, and the list goes on),” she explains. “I based it on the series of interviews Maria Callas did with Mike Wallace, of which she was very candid and ‘matter of fact’ when it came to speaking on her experiences. This was the approach I took when it came to songwriting for the EP. My background is in the Opera world, and that was also a major construct in the development of the #MVI. There was a crystalline focus on vocals and lyrics.”
And that’s certainly what you get; ballads run deep on #MVI, allowing Isa’s big voice to shine and her heartfelt lyrics to take precedent in her “pop/soul” sound.
“Mirrors” serves as Isa’s long-awaited follow-up to her debut EP Montage.
