Ella Isaacson is quickly becoming one of the most exciting artists within the pop field. The New York native was brought up surrounded by creativity, spending her childhood writing and creating songs. Her music fully represents her feelings. With difficult topics and issues such as self-image, beauty and doubt all being discussed within her music.
Her latest single “Empty Seat” is no different. The track features a colourful melting pot of heartwarming piano lines, emotionally-penned vocals and understated guitar lines. The track showcases moments of vulnerability that come wrapped up in pop sensibilities. Lyrically, Ella wants to create an honest space in which her audience can find solace within if they're experiencing similar emotions.
Speaking about the single she shares: “Loss of any kind is a hard feeling to put into words. When you have someone in your life one day and then they’re gone the next, the head and the heart can take their sweet time catching up. There’s a feeling of the way things are “supposed to be”, the future that was “supposed to happen” and then life goes on, as it does and you have moments where reality hit harder than you thought; from a place you used to go, a life event you get an invitation for, their coffee order from your local barista, or a package that shows up before a change of address has been processed … That’s what Empty seat is about. All those empty spaces in your life you didn’t expect, some you never even noticed until that person wasn’t there to fill it anymore.”
Amassing over 40 million streams so far, Ella has produced hits such as Ruins which peaked at #10 on US Viral chart and #30 on the Global Viral chart on Spotify. Even though the singer’s inspirations (such as Billy Joel) hail from her New York roots, she’s clearly touching people globally with her music and words. “There's the you, you show to the world, and then there's the version of you nobody really knows but only sees glimpses of. My music is a commentary on that duality and what that can mean for young people struggling to find themselves.”
