Michael "Izzy" Isabella is a NYC-based musician. For Episode 106 of Thompson's Top Five I asked Izzy the following questions: 1) What music blew your mind when you were growing up? 2) What did the first songs you wrote sound like? 3) How did moving to New York City impact you musically? 4) How do you decide whether a song is for you or your band? 5) What emotions are you yet to explore musically? At the end of the episode I share a demo version of "Girls Gotta (Groove Again)" which will appear on Izzy's forthcoming solo record. In addition to his solo work Izzy plays in a band called Unicorn Harvest. DIG!
