Introducing: Boardwalk Isabella

Boardwalk Isabella1

Boardwalk Isabella is the alter ego and musical adventure of independent English rock funk artist and Singer Songwriter, James C Hughes.  James is a New Wave bassist who’s played with or alongside some of the great names of the music business including Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, and  many more.

Resurrection Man, the first single from the debut album, “Headed for the Promised Land”, was recorded, mixed and produced by Hughes and mastered by Peter Maher, engineer to U2, The Rolling Stones and more.

The 2nd single, The World Is A Mirror, mastered once again by Peter Maher, exhibits all the qualities of the debut release: rock, soul and groove played with passion and hallelujah brio, and repeated the radio play success of Resurrection Man.

The 3rd single, Oh The Ground Was Hard has just been released and was welcomed into the world of rock by a rapturous response on the BBC. Last month, listeners to Indie 365 Radio broadcasting out of Cleveland, Ohio voted Boardwalk Isabella Indie Artist Of The Year.

Boardwalk Isabella’s debut EP, “Clear The Decks” is set for release on 6 June.
