Israel Gore on SoundBetter

Work remotely with an experienced music producer that will give your next track the attention it deserves while rendering away from a mainstream sound to provide a cultural new wave. Conquer your next single, EP or album with a professional musician that's capable of elevating your overall sound.

In 2014 I turned down a publishing deal with Sony Records to pursue a freelance career as an artist and tone in on my own sound. I want to work with you now and be able to offer you the same and lend any hand in achieving your own goals. You can read more about me in my artist bio below.

Israel Gore, otherwise known as IZZY, set his roots in Charlotte, NC before he took off to pursue a career in music. The motivated young artist showed interest in music as early as his toddler years. This quickly transformed into something greater through the church scene where his family was of major influence.

Taking a look back at the artist's adolescence, IZZY quickly realized he wanted to take singing and songwriting to a higher extreme. At the age of 16 he concluded that giving his attention to music full time would better suit him in his career. The next couple of years were spent in front of open mics that neighbored a boutique scene among the Charlotte area. Once the infamous 18th birthday sprung, IZZY packed his bags and headed to Nashville. He shifted between Nashville, LA and Kansas City where the young musician began producing and engineering full time to bridge the gap between recording and writing his own music. The traveling came of good use for IZZY as he made several connections with prominent figures in the industry that have guided in shaping his career.

  15. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  16. A: I think when people hear that you work in the music industry their mind almost instantly wanders to making wash out beats for Soundcloud, not really going anywhere.

  37. Q: What's your typical work process?

  38. A: I prefer to figure out the direction of the project my client wants to take, discover some similar artists to compare vocals and range and from there I like to dive right in with the beat and let everything flow.
