Los Angeles singer-songwriter Michael Isaak fuses dreamy indie pop with intimate acoustic folk on his journey through a world that is ever-changing and tragically beautiful. The former Princeton neuroscience student draws audiences into his deepest cerebral spaces, showcasing music as a profound tool for healing.
As a first generation Egyptian-American, Michael offers an ethnic twist to the Western indie genre, having grown up listening to Arabic music with his family. He learned to play piano and ukulele from an early age and later taught himself how to play guitar and use digital audio workstations, receiving his first production credit at 15. He went on to write and produce his first original song “fabricated love story” in August 2021.
Since then, Michael has grossed over 80,000 streams across platforms. He headlined his first concert at The Hotel Cafe in December 2022, and has played on some of LA’s most iconic stages including The Whisky A Go Go.
