Isobel Caldwell (she/they) is taking their debut album ‘Duty Of Care‘ on the road for the first time since its 2022 release. With a waterfall of shows up and down the East Coast and even a little bit west, the Hong Kong born, Naarm based artist will bring their gently stirring songs to halls, bars and bandrooms across four states of so called Australia. Whether solo or with her bandmates, each show promises intimacy, catharsis, warmth, and a number of captivating guests.

At Smith’s Alternative, Isobel and her band will be supported by Anna Elisara.

This event takes place on unceded lands of the Ngunnawal people. We’d like to pay our respects to their elders past and present.

Isobel Caldwell (she/they) is a Hong Kong born, Naarm based musician who writes intricate, meditative songs exploring love, loss and mental health through a delicate balance of soft, soaring vocals and lilting guitar arrangements. Weaving together reflections and observations on the everyday, Isobel’s songs are a tonic and a much needed warm hug for the ears Isobel is the kind of musician who wears their heart on their sleeve, exploring the thornier aspects of life in a gentle, insightful way. In 2022, Isobel and her band released their debut album 'Duty Of Care', a tribute to growth in grief and the importance of friendship. Since the release, the various songs have garnered widespread radio play across the continent. 2023 takes Isobel and her band up the East Coast of the continent for the first time, alongside a collection of special guests.

“She’s a magician…The power of Isobel Caldwell’s music is wonderful- she’s a star.” Kate Kingsmill (Triple RRR)
