We sat down with upcoming artist from NYC Isobella Caroline.
What is your name and what city do you rep?
My name is Isobella Caroline Boucher and the city I represent is New York City. A big shout out to NYC.
What is unique about you and your music?
Hmm, that is a good question. Unique about me and my music?. I believe at times speaking of yourself as unique is somewhat overrated. “sigh” Yet I am unique because I am ‘me’ to begin with, just as we all have a unique fingerprint to the world. I believe that unique fingerprint may well be seen, heard and developed in my music. I was told when I first began my musical journey, my music held no boundaries, in one article spoken of my first CD “Was it all a Dream?’ I would personally describe boundaries” as limits of expression and artistic/personal growth”, something I believe as artists we should try to surpass. My music is unique because I somewhat rebel against genres in music .
What shaped your music?
The shaping of my music began very early as I have been trained professionally in ballet and modern dance. The array of music I have been surrounded by ranged from Bach to The Dead can Dance, so in that , I have been fine tuned to the eclectic. Yet the actual shaping of my music would come from the classical forms. a few of my first actual compositions of music where classical. Then I began to off spring into the range of electronica pop, which at the present time is the venue I am on with my music.
When did you realize you were going to make music professionally?
I still haven’t, *kidding. I was surprised at first by so much encouragement in my music. The first time I heard my music playing in a store on their sound speakers actually put me in a bit of surreal awe. I was standing there , hearing my music ,saying “oh my , it sounds good” yet it was me !!!! I was shocked.
What type of music do you listen to?
I listen to all kinds. The full range from classical to hard core rock.
Who, to you, is the most undervalued music artist?
I have never thought of that or as a question. I refuse to answer that because I do not want to put one artist in the spotlight of being undervalued. I cannot answer it.
How do you prepare for your performances?
I prepare for my performances with forethought, practice and rehearsals. I believe in practicing since going on stage is scary enough without being prepared.
What ignites your (song) writing flow?
I believe life ignites my song writing flow along with my poetry. I would say emotion would be the fire to most of my songs. The full spectrum of feelings we go thru in relationships, life , the ups n downs the world brings and love are the main factors.
What do you do when you don’t do music (creative or otherwise) and that you are
More art, life , and love are my passions. When I am not doing music I am still creating. I am also an actress, film and theater. I love to work out, do yoga, along with drawing.
Success to you is…
Accomplishing goals, feeling good about what you are doing, and a feeling of contentment along with love.
Any upcoming projects?
Yes, I have many upcoming projects. The one I am most excited about is my new cd that will be coming out this spring.It is called “Cupid Arrows” The full copulation will feature 10 of my newest tracks.
