Isabella McNickle (Stand Up) Isabella has performed at numerous local venues as a member of the band, Eagle Medicine, as a solo vocalist, keyboard player, and as a stand-up comedienne. “I didn’t appreciate my childhood music lessons”, she says. “My friends were going to Girl Guides, and got to wear a snappy uniform while I was practising scales. However, I appreciate them now”. Isabella lives happily in her shack in the bush, scribbles in her spare time, and knows more about chickens than she ought to.
