22 year old Asian-American gal who dreams of becoming a country singer/songwriter.
My name is Iszy and I like to write songs when i'm not obsessing over dog and cat videos online. I specialize in singing/songwriting with the likes of Kelsea Ballerini, Maren Morris, Dan + Shay and Thomas Rhett. I am looking to collaborate and work with other artists with similar taste as me. I am not afraid to step out of my comfort zone and try something different, though! (My first EP was Pop)

Interview with iszy
Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
A: I have had the privilege to work with many talented artists who I am proud to call my friends. I've had Bea Go on my first EP doing harmonies and backing vocals and we've written songs together. My best friend Amanda Yang and I are constantly writing and singing. We make the best duo. There are many more talented artists i've worked with but those two top the list!
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: I'm currently just writing songs and adding them to my song bank for sale or on hold for my future country album.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: I promise to make a song that you will love! If you don't love it, I'll give you your money back!
Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?
A: People think that country music is all about tractors and corn fields. It's not. The beauty about country music is telling a story about something that feels pure and real to you. It's about being in a world without social media and all this craziness that the world provides.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I started out on YouTube as a singer/songwriter when I was 16. My fanbase then grew and I went through many changes throughout my life causing me to go on a hiatus until I was 19. I began writing again and decided that it was what I loved. I have geared my writing towards country music because it allows me to tell a story and speak to the listeners about my experience. It's really helped me open up my mind to new songwriting horizons. Now I'm 21 and my writing skills have only grown through more time and experience.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: People call me the asian Taylor Swift. Although I do not take offense to that, I like to describe my style as upbeat, emotional and real. I always have a story to tell in my songs.
Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?
A: I would love to work with Kelsea Ballerini or Maren Morris because their songs always inspire me. I would love to know their writing inspiration and process.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I bring originality and honesty to my songs that I write. I infuse real emotion and stories together to create a song that can make an audience feel connected to it.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: I prefer talking over Skype or Facetime about your needs for your song. I would also write down details you want included in the song and send you over samples of the song for your personal revision.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: I currently do not have a studio set up. But I have a Blue Yeti Mic to record vocals.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Country and Pop.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Tori Kelly, Meaghan Trainor, Dan+Shay, Maren Morris, and Kelsea Ballerini.
