In what seems like another life, and certainly a very different time, Isle 7 was opening for national bands in Central Florida and their music was being played on the radio. Life was good. The year was 2004 and the sky was the limit. Sadly, as it happens with most bands, the magic came to an end and the music was silenced.
Fast forward to 2021 where it seems like the world has gone crazy. And to keep up with the crazy times, the members of Isle 7 have reunited to create more music. Armed with iPhones, GarageBand apps, earbuds, and varying degrees of rust, the band members started the process of playing music together again. When the responsibilities of a fireman, a lawyer, a healthcare IT guy, and a craft beer brewer allowed for it, the boys wrote and recorded new songs. Through texts and emails, over thirty new songs were written, demoed, and weeded through for a tremendous collection of music.
Isle 7 is comprised of Scott Severance on guitar and vocals, John Ball on bass, Jared Curtis on lead guitar and mandolin, and Michael Brady Scoma on drums. The lineup has been the same since 2003. Past members include Jeremy Fuller, Dave Edwards, Michael McCorry, and Brad “Ghost Man” Tweed.
Now living in different regions of the country, the four band members reunited in Tennessee to record a follow up to 2004’s Counting the Days. The band was lucky to have the opportunity to work with Brett Hestla, the same producer they worked with in 2004. There is no doubt that Isle 7’s new album, Old Council, is by far the best music Isle 7 has ever released.
Old Council is a work that the band is incredibly proud of and are happy to announce that the sky is the limit once again.
Starting out, the idea of living the road band life was the last thing on our minds. After we did all the local gigs, we realized the only way for us to evolve as a band was to hit the road. Over the next five years, we logged hundreds of gigs — with the occasional festival appearance — in cities across the country. Our time on the road proved crucial in shaping our sound.
Our set list will prominently feature the new stuff from Old Council and beyond. Even though we have yet to release all 10 of the songs from Old Council, the follow up has already been written and demoed. We will feature some of these songs in our sets to give a sneak peak! Check out our tour page for dates, times and access! Can't wait to play for you all!
