Isabella Ramos is a Latina artist, vocalist and songwriter from Miami, FL. At the age of 11, Ramos discovered her passion for music. She had a pretty slow start because she was what she calls a closet singer, being too afraid to sing in public. When she finally got the nerve to get on stage, she loved the way that she felt connected to an audience and knew she wanted to pursue a career in music. Citing influences ranging from classic R&B artists like Anita Baker to current artists like Kehlani, Isabella has developed her own sound that combines elements of Pop and R&B. Isabella graduated Summa Cum Laude from Berklee College of Music in May of 2020, where she double majored in Vocal Performance and Music Business.
In high school, Ramos entered and competed in numerous festivals, making the prestigious All-State Reading Choir three years in a row and working under the direction of notable clinicians such as André Thomas and Jeffrey Benson. She formed a pop band called Blue Ink, playing venues throughout Miami. In 2015, she entered the National YoungArts competition and was named an Honorable Mention winner two years in a row and was selected out of 12,000 applicants.
During her time in Boston, she performed on various Berkee stages, as well as local live music venues. Isabella toured the Northeast as the lead singer in Bayside, a highly acclaimed general business band under Wilson Stevens Productions. Her time at Berklee led her to unique opportunities, such as performing with renowned veteran in the industry, Gabrielle Goodman (Chaka Khan, Roberta Flack, Michael Bublé) and studying under GRAMMY® award winning songwriter/producer, David "Swagg R'Celious" Harris (H.E.R., Kehlani). Isabella was also a finalist in the Atlantic Records' Emerge competition, in which A&Rs from the record label scouted young talent online. She was recognized by Atlantic Records and Artist Publishing Group for her performance and songwriting abilities through the competition.
In 2016, she released her debut single, "Let Me Go", an acoustic ballad that showcased soothing melodies and vulnerable lyrics. Isabella recently released a collaboration with electronic producer Flakes. The breakup anthem "Figure It Out" has been added to numerous user-generated playlists on Spotify that feature independent artists on TikTok. Isabella recently made the move to Los Angeles, where she is working on her own artist project, as well as other projects that she is passionate about. Since embarking on her music journey in LA, she has been mentored by and received accolades from GRAMMY® award winning powerhouse vocalist, Ledisi. A background vocalist for R&B/Soul artist Simha and session vocalist for Michael Harold (Composer for CBS and FOX), Isabella has just started to scratch the surface of her music career in LA.
Ever since breaking out of her own comfort zone, Isabella has been challenging herself and others to take risks and pursue dreams, despite having any fear or doubt. Isabella is passionate about creating music that inspires and moves others and this is her main goal when working on any project. She looks forward to continuing to do this and feels grateful that her dream as a shy child has slowly but definitively been becoming reality.
