“Names To Note”: A Series On Rising UK Female Artists

Helen PocockReviewsLeave a Comment


Continuing with this short series, the next artist we are featuring is Kent-based singer/songwriter Isabella Coulstock

Growing up listening to a variety of music thanks to her parents, it was the storytelling of the country genre in particular that stole her heart. She was given her first guitar for her 13th birthday (the one she continues to play today) and started writing songs that year with her impressive first composition  “Crazy Cowboy” still making it onto her set list 8 years later! 

Equally at home on guitar or piano, and with voice that has purity as well as strength, Isabella is already making quite an impact on the country music scene with her assured stage presence and well crafted songs. From playing a live Under The Apple Tree session for Bob Harris in her early teens to a sold out headline show at Camden’s Green Note, appearances at Black Deer Festival and most recently making her arena debut at London’s O2 opening for The Who (believe me, she owned that massive stage and even got the audience to sing along with her crowd-pleaser “Honky Tonk Beer”) nothing appears to phase this talented young artist. She regularly supports Jools Holland on his tours and a chance meeting between her father and New York singer/songwriter Nell Bryden last year led her to open for Nell on her most recent UK dates . 

Having released her self- produced debut EP  “In The Room” a few months ago which included one of her several co-writes with Chaz Jankel of Ian Dury & The Blockheads fame, followed swiftly by her debut single “Trouble” , there’s a lot more for Isabella and her growing fan base to look forwards to during the remainder of 2023. This includes her playing at the British Country Music Festival in Blackpool next month and a headline show at The Stables, Milton Keynes, in November.
