TALENT may run in the family of young songstress Isabel Rose, but her passion for music is something she holds on her own.
The 18-year-old singer/songwriter/guitarist will share her gift of music with the community when she plays a solo gig at Live@Newport on Friday 20 September.
Isabel cut her teeth as a duo with older sister Georgina a few years back, but has since decided to branch out on her own.
She started singing lessons six years ago and has added guitar and songwriting to her repertoire.
“Music is more of a passion, I sing to relax I play guitar as well in-between homework and study,” she said.
Isabel describes her style as contemporary folk with a country influence.
“The songs I write have a more folk, relaxed style. I love country music and over the years it has developed into a twangy sort of sound.”
The Newport resident said her musical upbringing was an influence on her with her father, Michael Stewart a guitarist/violinist/piano player and also the founder of the Newport Folk Festival and Folk Club.
Her grandfather was also musical.
“If you’re exposed to that stuff for a long time, you definitely become influenced by it.”
The talented musician already has a number of solo performances under her belt, including her recent spot at the Newport Folk Festival, and will perform her own material at the upcoming show.
“I enjoy performing. It’s an adrenaline rush and a lot of fun.”
The Newport Folk and Fiddle Club event will take place at the Newport Bowls Club, 4 Mason St, Newport. Full bar and light snack food available. Show starts at 7.30pm. Entry $12, members $8.
