Music has always been used for ceremonial or recreational purposes. However, as an art form, it has always served as a direct medium of artistic expression, invoking emotions and feelings in humans.

Ascend Agency is working with Digital Music News to create opportunities for artists to be visible to the music industry.

For decades, the music industry has been through a sea of change. Contemporary artists are more inclined toward creating recreational music instead of fulfilling the purpose for which music was created. Young artist and humanitarian Isabelle Fries is making a difference here with her new single, “What Can I Do.” The message of compassion, kindness, and emotion in this song has already resonated with people globally, earning more than 6 million views and downloads across social media platforms.

Isabelle started her journey in music at the age of 15. She performed several fundraiser concerts and shows in Uganda during the initial phase of her career. The philanthropist in Isabelle made her realize that her art is gifted for a purpose. Since then, she has dedicated her life to creating music that soothes people emotionally, touching their hearts, and invoking feelings that people never knew existed. Her new single, “What Can I Do,” is a perfect example of this.

After the release of her previous single “Scrapbook” earlier this year, Isabelle’s “What Can I Do” is a highly anticipated release among her fans. The song is written by Seth Baer, who was one of the first artists to discover the emotion in Isabelle’s voice. Seth’s signature style of lyrics has merged perfectly with Isabelle’s soulful voice to create the heart-touching medley. The song, as Seth describes, “is about being there for someone no matter what the situation is. Just being a steady foundation and source of hope for when someone needs it most.”

“What Can I Do” is produced by the multi-Grammy-winning producer and mixing engineer Rob Chiarelli.

Rob has appeared in several gold and platinum albums and motion picture soundtracks. His mastery of sound is prominent in this pop ballad with a unique blend of alternative genres. Upper Octave, Inc. and Streetlamp Records are the record labels behind this single, which is currently streaming on all major digital music platforms.

Isabelle has a heart of kindness and compassion. She has been associated with Global Livingston Institute (GLI) since a young age and is currently a board member and youth leader. GLI is a nonprofit organization that helps spread awareness and medical aid for HIV/ AIDS. Isabelle has founded a nonprofit organization as a sister concern of GLI to provide sports and music facilities to schools in Uganda. Featured on the cover of Gurus Magazine this year, Isabelle was recognized as the artist of compassion that she is. It is her humanitarian soul that reflects the emotion in her voice.

Isabelle will continue to make her mark in the world of music through compassion and emotion. Love, loneliness, longing, and emotional support will always be dominant themes in her songs because that is how she connects with her listeners as an artist. Basking in the success of “What Can I Do,” Isabelle is optimistic about creating more heart-rending melodies in the future to heal people in trying times.
