Isla is a versatile composer and arranger. Her work includes fiddle tunes, ensemble arrangements, theatre scores, short film scores and political songs. She enjoys collaborating with artists from other disciplines, and writing commissions to mark birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Aged 16, she won the lyrics category of Amnesty International’s Power Of Our Voices protest songwriting competition with her song ‘Death Row’. In 2019 she devised a musical-theatrical production A Reawakened Monument of Antiquity, inspired by the music and cultural-political context of A Collection of Highland Vocal Airs (1784).
