Isobel Thatcher is an award winning singer-songwriter based in London, UK who’s style is heavily influenced by the Blues scene that she grew up with, as well as wistful Americana and Country.
Isobel started originally with piano lessons at age 4 and then had her first musical adventure at the Salisbury Blues Jam, playing saxophone at the young age of just 9. A few years down the line, Isobel studied at Tech Music Schools in London and received a HND in Vocal Performance and Cert He in Pop Music Practice. She also went on to win the Tech Music School University ‘Songwriting Showcase’ receiving the award of ‘Song of the Year’ with her self penned bluesy original ‘I wont.’ This award meant she went on to perform at the O2 Shepards Bush Empire with a full band for ‘Tech Music Schools Graduation 2012’.
Isobel’s self-penned songs have given her a wide range of success singing all over the UK and internationally in venues such as the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, London and Rampelyset, Denmark which has given Isobel a chance to build her reputation and fan base.
Isobel independently released her Debut EP in 2013, which was recorded with Curved Air legend – Michael Wedgwood at his studios in Denmark. This received radio interest from not only local radio stations but also BBC Introducing UK – the South, and internationally on Blues & Roots Radio and many more.
This has been followed by Isobel’s long awaited E.P ‘On My Own’ which boasts a range of styles from Country, Blues, Folk and Pop . On My Own was launched at a sold out ticketed event in Wiltshire and also at the infamous Bedford in Balham. Isobel has also performed tracks from the new E.P live on BBC Wiltshire and it has had radio play from Abbey 104 FM, Way Out Radio, Alex Krupa’s Country Show and across the pond on KB Country Radio & Grey Eagle . The new record has been described by Rock-Regenernation‘ as: “a plethora of blues influences as well as a good sprinkling of country styles with Isobel’s fine vocals being the proverbial cherry on the cake.”
Isobel released her new single ‘Walking Down The Tracks’ on the 30th October 2020 which is described as a Blues tinged Americana track detailing the troubles of continuing something despite being unquestionably bad news.
