The success of The Preatures introduced the world to Isabella Manfredi. As noted by iD-Vice “Isabella Manfredi has It — that thing one step up from plain-old charisma” and SMH for her “electrifying presence”. With multiple ARIA nominations, accolades and global tours under her belt, Isabella has recently launched her solo career with the release of her debut solo album ‘izzi’. A new era with a new sound for Manfredi — one she says is more authentic, all-encompassing and representative of her as an artist - ‘izzi’ has marked the emergence of an iconic and powerful artist taking control of her artistic vision. A strong artist advocate in the Australian music scene she is a founding member of #KeepSydneyOpen, has spoken openly as part of the #MeToo and #MeNoMore movements (including as panellist on Q&A), was part of the advisory board for the inaugural AWMA’s (Australia Women in Music Awards) patroned by Chrissy Amphlette and is an APRA ambassador and mentor.
She has also appeared in Australian Vogue, RUSSH magazine, Harper’s Bazaar, Marie Claire, InStyle, 10, Oyster, Sneaky, Yen, Tangent, Astrophe, Beat (UK). In 2021 she broadened her musical composition skills to film, composing the score for PLAN B, a HULU Original film directed by Natalie Morales.
