Isis is a multidimensional creative who holds an evolving list of titles, including that of writer, performer, developer, singer and poet.
Of Liberian parents, the Newark-born performer has been described as “an edgy and fresh brand of soulful truth,” who is both haunting and mesmerizing.
Her mission is simple: find you, feel you and free you. That mission has allowed her to grace the stages of premiere venues and events across the country, from New York and Minneapolis to Los Angeles and North Carolina.
Her spoken word performances have been described as an energetic “explosion of power and grace.” her musical sound -- an eclectic fusion of rock and soul, with a bluesy funk for the new millennium -- has been compared to such legends as Tina Turner, Lenny Kravitz and Lauryn Hill.
With a voice as big as her hair, she has released two musical projects: amazingly random, her 2012 solo project which featured “I Saw You” - the 2012 National Poetry Award-winning Spoken Word Single/Performance of the Year and Mosaic, with her band Born Relic [formerly known as (i am) isis] which has been dubbed "an energetic masterpiece" of rock and soul music, featuring singles “Get Free”, an inspiring anthem for change, and “Take It Back”, a “no-nonsense, head-banging, unabashed girl-power anthem.”
She currently serves as Editor-in-Chief of Minnesota Spokesman-Recorder and Digital Director/Editor for Hype Hair. she is also the founder of Sadiaa.com, the only US-based directory dedicated to Black-owned hair and beauty brands.
She earned a BA in English & Theatre from Hamline University and is currently working on her first full-length poetry book. after a 10-year stint in Brooklyn, NY, she once again resides in Minneapolis, MN.
