10 Songs I Love: Izzie Walsh
We recently got together with one of our newest additions to the Songfinch Artist Community, Izzie Walsh, and caught a glimpse into the soundtrack that drives her artistry. Join us as we dive into 10 songs that Izzie loves. These include songs that have been dominating her playlists, had an impact on her as a musician or songs that bring back wonderful memories.
1. “If We Were Vampires” by Jason Isbell
A great love song with a great concept, the theme of eternity really makes you question your perspective on life and the relationships you have. Can they last forever?
2. “Stubborn Love” by The Lumineers
An all time favourite of mine, as soon as I heard the song it became a classic in my library. Simple instrumentation but delivered with such emotion. I think at some point these haunting lyrics have applied to everyone.
3. “Another Love” by Tom Odell
What a piano melody this has! Tom is truly himself in this song which is what I love about it the most – only he could create this love song with a twist.
4. “The Suburbs” by Arcade Fire
Arcade Fire are one of my favourite bands, so it was extremely difficult to pick just one song from their catalogue. In the end I went for The Suburbs due to its themes of childhood as well as adulthood, the band really do capture how it feels to grow up and you will have memories of your own childhood rushing back to you with this epic arrangement.
5. “Everywhere” by Fleetwood Mac
This just makes me think of sparkles and having a good time! Not much else to say, I had to get Fleetwood Mac in here somewhere!
6. “Midnight on the Interstate” by Trampled by Turtles
If you haven’t seen the video to this then you need to stop what you are doing, and watch the video below. Then message me your thoughts on Instagram (@izziewalshmusic).
7. “Riptide” by Vance Joy
The ultimate feel good song and who could forget the line about Michelle Pfeiffer! This improves my mood no matter what and is especially great to listen to while driving along the Australian east coast! Stop off at Byron Bay, grab a beer and stick some Vance Joy on.
8. “Diamonds & Gasoline” by Turnpike Troubadours
A future classic and a song not many people know about, I really think Turnpike capture American culture and how vast a country it is with Diamonds & Gasoline. Travelling the beaten path while trying the best you can for your partner.
9. “Englishman in New York” by Sting
This song really makes me want to live in New York every time I listen it. Maybe I could write a song called “Englishlady in New York”, just a thought for the future there. Back to the point, Sting proves his musical talent with great instrumentation and arrangement skills with this one, all while keeping the lyrics grounded and relatable to everyone.
10. “Wonderful Life” by Black
A song to listen to every so often, it has such odd instrumentation however with Vearncombe’s deep vocals defines the track and really does convince you that we live in a wonderful world.
