BioCousin Isaac started out his career as a commercial airline pilot, but got fired after only one week on the job. It wasn't the drinking in the cockpit but his insessant need to beat-box over the plane's PA that got him fired. So it was only natural that instead of taking his show on the road, Cousin Isaac took to the sky. Jet-setting across the Pacific, Cousin Isaac recorded his latest release "Prepare for Departure" in Thailand, Japan and San Francisco. Musically, Cousin Isaac has flown solo since the late nineties. He performs live by beat-boxing into a looping sampler and harmonizing with himself, adding musical parts from various gizmos including cell phones and musical toys. Recording his music wherever he lays his head, Cousin Isaac runs his micro label idnote out of a wheely-bag.
InfluencesCousin Isaac is easily influenced while under the influence. Here are but a few... Air, Aimee Mann, Barrington Levy, Beenie Man, Barry White, Black Eyed Peas, Beck, Coldplay, Dengue Fever, Depeche Mode, Desmond Dekker, Flaming Lips, Gus Gus, Ian Brown, Kyogo Kawaguchi, LCD Sound System, MIA, Mad Finder, Missy Elliot, Money Mark, Notoious B.I.G., Oasis, Patsy Cline, Richard Ashcroft, The Smiths, the Streets, thievery Corporation, the Verve....anything good.
