Isaac Krapf is a multi-instrumentalist from Baltimore, Maryland. His first work “Seasick” was released in 2020 at the beginning of the COVID Pandemic. On that record, he wrote and tracked the guitars, bass, vocals, lyrics, and drums. Throughout quarantine, Isaac continued writing and in 2021 released his second record “The Hollow“. In 2022 Isaac is set to release his third record titled “Gates“.
In a review, Zone Nights blog described the songs as “Intense….aggressive, but at the same time melodic.” This is mainly due to his instrumentation which includes clean chordal guitar work layered over heavy bottom end guitars.

Isaac is highly engaged with his audience on social media platforms. Let’s get to know this outstanding artist through a brief interview.
