Growing up in North Queensland, Airlie Beach, Issy has travelled extensively throughout Asia, Europe and America, and has lived what feels like many lifetimes in her short years.
With many different stories to tell, both from her time abroad and upbringing in a regional area, she is a girl who never fails to find song writing inspiration.
Some of Issy’s musical inspirations include David Bowie, the Divinyls, Meatloaf and Blondie.
Despite being in the early stages of her career Issy has managed to perform at numerous major festivals including the Gympie Music Muster, Airlie Beach Festival of Music, Opening Concert to the Tamworth Country Music Festival, Yeppoon Village Festival and other venue around Brisbane and surrounds.
Having graduated from JMC Academy in December with a Bachelor of Music (Songwriting), Issy has recorded her debut single in Sydney with Matt Fell. Who is Issy Burnup? She is surprising. She's certainly entertaining. And she's pioneering a new genre.
Her debut single When's Take Off? released on May 5th 2021, reached No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Charts and stayed there for 2 full days! Not bad for a first release some would say...
With more singles to come throughout the year, Issy Burnup is an artist to watch. And watch closely.
Check out When's Take Off? on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify.
