Gypsy-jazz Songstress and Poet
gypsy music takes the stage at Mussel Inn
Call it gypsy pop if you will, no matter how you hear her, Isabelle Wolff’s vocal styling will have you dancing on the tables and revelling in the joy of song.
The talented German songstress and poet learnt her vocal craft in the gypsy tradition from Lulo Reinhardt, well-known German descendant of gypsy-jazz pioneer Django Reinhardt.
Currently based in New Zealand, Isabelle and has been living in Golden Bay these last few months where she has been treating locals to her infectious music and songs.
Recent performances at the Harbour Street Jazz and Blues Festival in Oamaru and a couple of gigs further south, including the Blue Door in Arrowtown, allowed Isabelle to further showcase her music to New Zealand audiences. She also played with New Zealand/Dutch band MyBaby at this year’s Lunasa Festival
Isabelle studied singing at the Popacademy Artez in the Netherlands where she completed her Master of Music for jazz and pop vocals in 2022.
“I discovered my love of singing as a child,” says Isabelle. “I joined children’s choirs, played in various student bands, covers bands and rock bands. I taught myself to play guitar and began writing songs too.
“My dream is to create something that is bigger than just myself; I love to connect people with their emotions and to experience the joy and healing power of music.”
In April 2022, Isabelle released her first EP, ‘Liebe & Freiheit’, in combination with a book of poetry, followed by a release tour in Amsterdam.
