Ishod

Ishod is a multi-dimensional artist.

Born and raised in south London, Ishod quietly honed and cultivated the imaginative world of creativity in which he resides. His diverse, melodious sound is a fusion of different styles and genres of music. Using his unique and rare talents as a composer, singer songwriter and lyricist, this multi- faceted creative is a new breed of artist.

The tasteful delivery, undertone and subtext of his songs are governed by a compelling sense of truth telling and sincerity. After independently releasing two underground rap albums, The Promise and Who The F Is Ishod which sold over 12,000+ copies, Ishod spent some time studying at Identity School of Acting. This ever-evolving journey led Ishod to encompass filmic & theatrical aspects to his contribution as an artist, creating his own sub-genre named ‘Musiision’ (Musical content through visual Art). Ishod is currently working on a body of art and constantly keeps himself in an innovative space. His sound has been described as epic, timeless, progressive, refreshing and thought-provoking.

‘Don’t just create your ideas, be your ideas.’

I adore all that TriForce are, do and represent. I feel exceptionally lucky for all that you've given me. I'm in a great place, with a new agent - Gordon and French - and my second TV job ahead. I honestly wouldn't be in this place without the support and opportunities given to me through The Actors Gym with the fabulous Babou, MonologueSlams and ongoing advice and guidance from the entireTriForce team.
