Liam Isaac is a powerhouse vocalist whose voice has been described as “powerful,” “mesmerizing,” and “captivating.”
A two-time Jack Richardson Music Award nominee in the jazz vocalist category, Liam Isaac brings a rare timbre and vocal wattage to new and classic pop, jazz, and blues tunes. Liam has been described by Bob Klanac of The Beat magazine as possessing “remarkable… talent and boy-next-door teen appeal”; James Reaney has also taken note, reporting on his London Free Press vlog, It’s On, that “…you’ll be hearing about him a lot more in the future!” Arts journalist and author, Donald D’Haene, has said of Liam: “He’s a phenom. He really is. He just has amazing presence and delivery and a beautiful voice.”
Liam has released multiple jazz and pop covers, as well as three original songs, two his own: In the Dark was released on iTunes in 2012; in 2013, Liam was contacted by Socan-award-winning songwriter, Steven Hardy, and released Hardy’s song, Is it Just Me? that year, as well as Liam’s second personal composition, Anyway, with a YouTube video by Peter Demas. Check out his Skyfall cover (available on YouTube) and other covers both from the studio and live on his YouTube channel at Liam Isaac Channel.
From Is It Just Me songwriter, Steven Hardy:
“Sometimes a singer comes along with a voice so naturally beautiful that everyone who hears it agrees, “Now, that’s an amazing voice”. Liam Isaac is one of those singers.
I had been trying, for a couple of years, to find the right singer for “Is It Just Me?”. When I played it for Liam and he said he wanted to record it I was thrilled. Thanks Liam for introducing the song to the world!” (May 5, 2013)
Featured guest appearances include the Beat Magazine Dish Awards, the inaugural event of The Stork Club Big Band Museum and Memories Tour, with the David Priest Trio at the Jazz for the People Series, and at the Quai du Vin Winery Summer Swing event.
