A Sunshine Coast singer/songwriter is making a name for herself in the music world with the release of her latest single and a record deal.
After a string of successful singles, including Sunburn and Allergy Season, Isabel Wood’s latest hit, Run and Hide, is all about slowing down and savouring the present.
“Run and Hide is all about letting go of the bigger picture and allowing yourself to just live in the moment,” she says.
“I feel like society expects us to be constantly productive in chasing our goals and the weight of that expectation can so easily cause us to lose touch with the little moments that make life beautiful.
“This song is my own personal reminder to not take myself too seriously and never let other people’s expectations take the enjoyment out of life.”
The 26-year-old from Mountain Creek has been integral in the creative process of her latest single, co-producing the track.
“I’ve never had the confidence to co-produce before, but … I absolutely loved it,” she says.
“I knew exactly where I wanted Run and Hide to sit sonically and could hear all the sounds in my head, so the production process was super collaborative where I would explain
my vision for each element.”
Ms Wood is also signing with Central Station Records and promising more music for 2022.
Planting herself firmly as one to watch, Ms Wood’s music has featured on triple J’s Home and Hosed and she has given stellar performances at Caloundra Music Festival in 2019 and 2021, as well as Mountain Goat Valley Crawl 2022. Find her music on streaming services.
