"New" Artist of the Month for May 2021
María Isabel is a New York Native, Dominican singer-songwriter who has been gaining attention recently with her most recent song on her debut EP, released last year “Stuck in the Sky.” Her soft, smooth voice captures intense and complex emotions with dreamy R&B-esque beats. She says her influences include Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Selena and Shakira, all powerful women who reinvent and rediscover themselves throughout their career. Her first single “The 1” was released right before the world shut down with COVID, and happened to be based on long-distance relationships and the yearning and paint that comes with being away from a loved one. An unintentionally apt song for what our next year would look like.
She recently graduated from NYU’s music program where she was interested in music business classes, so that she could go “into a room and understand the people who would eventually contribute to manager her career. Isabel loves music and says she does not see herself doing anything else, so she is in it for the long-haul.
