Isabella Kearney-Nurse

Isabella’s Story

For as long as Isabella can remember music has been her number one passion. Growing up in Australia to Irish parents, Isabella began performing & taking singing lessons from a young age. Around this time Isabella began to write poetry, creating the foundation for her songwriting. From then onwards Isabella has dedicated her life to music & has been performing professionally since age 16.

Now in her early 20’s, Isabella has enjoyed a successful & accomplished career as both a singer & songwriter. Isabella has formed two successful projects- Belle and The Bone People & Kyoto Skies leading her to be played on radio stations internationally & performing at some of the biggest festivals & venues in Australia. In 2015 Isabella completed a Bachelor of Music majoring in Performance & also the Young Women’s Jazz Workshop at The Conservatorium of Music.

As a session singer Isabella has worked on The Voice Australia & The Morning show as well as providing vocals for various albums & film scores. Isabella regularly performs for P&O cruise lines as a Guest Entertainer, giving her the opportunity to perform and travel internationally. 

As a songwriter Isabella has had the opportunity to co-write with a number of well known producers & artists, as well as writing melody & lyrics for her own projects. Her notable co-writes have included David Pritchard-Blunt (Musical Director & Arranger- The Voice, Hugh Jackman, Shirley Bassey), Josh Graham (Director & Producer for MTV Aus & Comedy Central) & Sam Sakr who works closely with Sony/ATV publishing. In 2016 Isabella travelled to Nashville & was accepted into NSAI’s Advanced Song Camp. There she was mentored by songwriting greats such as Pat Pattison & John Bettis. 

Now in 2017- Isabella has already had the exciting opportunity to sing on Broadway, travelling to New York in February. Isabella was also invited back to Nashville further culminate her songwriting, resulting in a number of inspiring collaborations. This year will also see the creation of Isabella’s first solo E.P. and the release of various collective musical projects.
