There’s a truly classic feel to Isla. The piano melody has a timeless feel to it and Bridget’s vocals feel as if they belong to some kind of golden age. Yet, what really stuck out for me about Isla was its warm and authentic lyrics, inspired by lockdown and becoming a mother, it has a simple but powerful message – be kind.

Bridget mostly performs as part of a covers band but, based on the evidence of Isla, I think she should definitely write more originals. It’s lyrically sublime. You can check it out below.
