19 year old Greta Isaac was born and raised in the rural Cowbridge in South Wales. She is the youngest child in a musical family and form an early age was exposed to an array of musical genres which have since influenced her own particular style. At the age of fifteen she taught herself to play guitar and within a few months was writing her own material and appearing regularly on the Cardiff and South Wales music scene and beyond too, appearing in folk clubs and music festivals the length and breadth of the country.
Her first independently released EP, “Down by the Water”, has received wide acclaim and embodies her love of folk and Americana as well as influences from the American Song Book, the ballads of the likes of some of her heroes such as Randy Newman, Billy Joel and Joni Mitchell and close harmony which was a very important part of her upbringing. She and her siblings were often found experimenting with harmonies from a young age and Greta often collaborates with her sisters on harmonies and includes them in her line up to provide back up vocals. ‘Down by the Water’ was Radio Wales’ record of the week soon after its release.
Her latest material, including her new EP ‘Oh Babe’ includes a foray into more orchestral arrangements of her songs, a doff of the cap to musical heroes such as Rufus Wainwright and Van Dyke Parks.
Greta is a first language Welsh speaker and lives in London where she can indulge in her deep interest in art and animation as well as her music.
