Going without food in order to fund the six hours of travel that was required to get to his singing lessons each Saturday, the past three and a half years have seen the talented teen transform from a small-town singer to the most-streamed First Nations pop artist in the world. Along the way he’s won The X Factor, represented Australia at the Eurovision Song Contest (finishing in the top 10), and scored a signing to Sony Music Australia.
Renowned as Australia’s most successful First Nations male pop artist, his debut single has broken records, with ‘It’s Gotta Be You’ going Double Platinum in Australia, Platinum in Norway and Sweden, Gold in Denmark and is now notching up over 253 million international streams – which is a pretty impressive feat for the 20-year-old.
Not only talented, but he’s also a really good human too. Prior to the unprecedented events of 2020, Isaiah had just finished a national tour with his band, including 50 shows and workshops with remote and regional communities across Australia. He was able to work with people in outback Australia, sharing his journey and showing that dreams can become reality with hard work and self-belief. As part of the tour, Isaiah sang his original song ‘Spirit’ with children from communities challenged by hardship.
Sounds like a pop artist you want to see, especially now that Eurovision has finished? Yeah us too. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the Geelong Arts Centre to give away a double pass to see Isaiah live on stage at Costa Hall on Friday, July 2 2021.
To enter, simply fill out the form below. The winner will be selected at random and announced at 5pm on Tuesday, June 1.
