"Stillman breathes life and character into her songs, encouraging her listeners to grow with her...She uses her music as a way to escape from the expectations of a bustling world, taking a moment to create for the love of it, and it shows in every note." — American Songwriter
Isabelle Stillman’s newest release, Heartrender, comes from a place of vulnerability and awakening that can only be sparked through transition, pitfalls and personal upheaval. Abandoning the path of traditional genre and ignoring any guidelines, Heartrender is a celebration of self-awareness and the strength in surrendering control to the unexpected turns of a life less planned, cracked open, and more beautiful for it.
"That exploration of how we perceive our lives and how we make meaning in the moment is at the core of “Heartrender.” It is a sonic space where we can easily imprint our own ideas as a listener and use Isabelle Stillman’s music as a vessel for our own self reflection. It all feels so personal and like it could be you who is sitting in an empty parking lot longing to find meaning in life. I would recommend sitting down and intently listening to this record." — Taste Culture
