New Music: Michael Isaak

If you’re a fan of Phoebe Bridgers or Conan Gray (and let’s face it, who isn’t?) then you might have a new artist to obsess over soon called Michael Isaak.

This LA-based newcomer thoughtfully blends elements of indie and folk with acoustic pop, resulting in a sound that is sincere, emotive and honest in tone. Elaborating on his new single ‘okay with this’, he says:

“Rock bottom felt like home. And in that darkness stood a strip of blue tape on my childhood bed frame. My brother put it there in some effort to tell me it’ll soon get better. That blue tape became a reminder of all the pain I endured–leaving college, losing friendships, feeling denied for who I was–but also the hope that I could overcome it all.”

A former Princeton neuroscience student, Isaak is now embarking on a new musical journey that has already seen him gain more than 70k streams from just two singles. We anticipate big things for this talent, so be sure to keep him on your radars.
