Additional Info: Isla grew up in Scotland and studied the harp at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama as a Junior, before relocating to London for University. She obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree (Hons) in Music with Management before completing her Postgraduate Diploma in Performance (Distinction) at Trinity College of Music, studying under celebrated harpists Imogen Barford, Charlotte Seale and Sioned Williams.

As a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland for several years she was fortunate to perform in some of Europe's most cherished concert halls. She toured to New York with a Scottish traditional music group, and also to France on a monastery tour with a girls choir. Whilst living and working in London, Isla frequently played at afternoon tea in some of the top hotels, and at wedding venues all across London and the beautiful South East of England.

Isla then moved to Japan to teach English for 4 years on the JET Programme, and was able to join an Irish Traditional Music Band, reconnecting with the traditional music side she enjoyed in her younger years.

Isla returned to London and took up a role in a Japanese Corporate Bank, living a totally different life to the one she left 4 years previously!

Since moving to Australia in 2010, Isla has been playing at weddings and functions on the Gold Coast.

In August, 2011, Isla travelled back to London and had the opportunity to perform and record with Fenech-Soler - very cool British band who toured Australia last year with the Good Vibrations Festival!

For the last 6 months Isla has been playing a Sunday night set at the acclaimed restaurant Allure on Currumbin, currently rated number 1 on the Gold Coast.
