Maya Isacowitz has done pretty well for herself thus far, although initially success took a while to show its sunny face. The Israeli singer-songwriter released her debut album, Safe and Sound, at age 21 in modest circumstances. At the time, she opted for a softly incipient route to spreading her artistic word, putting her first musical fruit out on her musician-instrument builder father’s label.
The first proffering did not generate too many waves among indie music consumers; but after a gestation period of three years, during which Isacowitz engaged in low-key marketing at gigs, she re-released Safe and Sound on High Fidelity. While pertaining to the offmainstream indie side of the industry tracks, the company still packed a lot more PR and distribution punch than Peter Isacowitz’s one-man band.
