SOFIA ISELLA (age 17). a dramatic modern explosion of orange.
Songwriting since age 8.
Violinist since 3.
Producing, guitar, piano along the way.
I use my violin in my live shows and original music. I bend the original sound of the violin with pedals and effects. I like slamming myself to the floor with violin solos inspired by electric guitar. I tell the sound guy to pump the violin to be as loud as my own voice. CRANK IT. BLAST IT. CHUNK IT UP. TRY AND SCARE ME WITH THE VOLUME LEVEL.
I'm nominated in 3 categories for the Gold Coast Music Awards, including Breakout Artist of the Year, Musician of the Year, and Live Act of the Year, along with People’s Choice.
I'm heavily influenced by the energy and expression of live music. Live music is life to me. I got stuck in Australia due to COVID in October of 2020 and it altered my world. Australia has spiders the size of a small horse. During the year I was there, I started playing live, starting at the local mall. I gained momentum and played over 70 shows. From Brisbane to Sydney to Melbourne, I've played on lineups with artists the likes of Mallrat, Angus & Julia Stone, Ballpark Music, Sycco, and performed Caloundra Music Festival, the Long Sunset, Out of the Woods Festival, Stones Corner Festival, and I've sold out my headline shows.
I had my first sync in a Sony commercial.
I've never lost a fight with a tiger.
