Isobel Heyworth is a female singer-songwriter based in Manchester and the Peak District. With roots firmly in the folk genre, her music has been compared to Joni Mitchell or Beth Orton. A demo of 100 copies On the Back of an Envelope preceded her debut album, Close Your Eyes, which was released to widespread acclaim in 2006 and followed up in 2009 with the self produced and recorded The Attic Recordings released on Green Bird Records.
Other projects that Isobel has participated in include the Digital Northerner 3 compilation album, "Out of the Blue" compilation album, backing vocals on Stephen Fretwell's track "Rose", co writes for the artist Fink (the single "Little blue mail box") and Sara Grabow (the song "Only time will tell"). She has also had her music included on the indie films "The Art of Suicide" and "Bigger than Ben" (starring Ben Barnes).
A frequent collaborator with fellow Mancunians, The Travelling Band, she performs regularly, both solo and with the band.
