Coming from the coastal hills of Petaluma, CA, Ismay represents the work of singer-songwriter and horseback adventurer Avery Hellman. Immersion in traditional American music since her earliest memories and a variety of modern day musings have combined to shape Ismay’s carefully constructed lyrics and melodies. The result of such varied influences in music has allowed young Hellman to forge an eloquent style of folk music that is fusing past and present tense.
