20 year old singer-songwriter Isla Sutherland (‘Isla’) has been making waves in the Cape Town music scene, performing regularly at a wide range of esteemed venues across the city with her acoustic guitar and powerful vocals- with influences such as Lorde, Fleetwood Mac, and Kelly Clarkson.
Isla explains “Break The Fall”
“I wrote Break The Fall as an outlet to express all the mixed emotions I was experiencing whilst in a long distance relationship. There were times where I felt nearly hopeless and songwriting was a way for me to deal with the pain of missing someone I truly care about- you really have to learn to trust each other. The simple act of being in love is worth it all.”
“I think the lyrics will resonate with the millions across the world who are currently unable to be close to their loved ones, and will hit even closer to home because of the COVID-19 pandemic in which we all were separated from people we care about.”
