“Impeccable songwriting” — in the words of one reviewer — makes Los Angeles-based Kate Isenberg stand out from other girls (and guys) with guitars. With clear, soulful vocals and alternate-tuning guitar riffs that make unusual chords sound easy, Isenberg’s style of folk-pop is both sophisticated and accessible. Listeners gravitate to her songs for both the ear candy and the thought-provoking, storytelling lyrics.
Her first studio solo album, THE TIME COMES ON HUMMING TRACKS, was a finalist for the annual Indie Acoustic Project’s Best Female Singer-Songwriter Album. Her second studio album, GOLD RUSH TOWN, received college and commercial radio play around the U.S. and was an IAP finalist for Best Lyrics. The albums were co-produced by Isenberg with Jon Evans (bassist, Tori Amos) and feature guest performers such as accordionist/organist Julie Wolf (Indigo Girls, Ani DiFranco) and trumpeter Erik Jekabson (John Mayer).
In addition to being a songwriter, Isenberg is an animator. She has animated her own songs as well as those of other songwriters. She is now at work developing an animated series for television.
