Hailing from Cheltenham, UK, Issy Winstanley teams up with a strong team of artists, and the overall concept of ‘Lockdown: Live’ is effortless.
Discussing her new album, Issy said: “During the beginning stages of lockdown, I was becoming increasingly anxious with the musical progress I had been making, becoming stinted by such a long break in live performance and practice. I always loved collaborating and bouncing off other artists, and I did not want the growth this facilitated to be hindered by months and months in quarantine. The idea for a new form of collaboration – all done virtually – came after I focused more time on learning the technological side of music and video production with so much time at home, and the free and simple methods I could make use of to deliver such collaborative content. I reached out to old and new musical friends and colleagues with the idea, and the response was overwhelming. So many artists were also keen not only to share creative ideas but also to share each other to our platforms. Over 9 weeks, I posted one new video each week to Instagram, Facebook and YouTube, and the reception of these releases was amazing.”
“Lockdown: Live” captures Issy’s iconic vocals and journeys through an ambient soundscape. A treasure found within the world’s current climate, this album will resonate with thousands.
