Austin is more than just the capital city of Texas, the Lonestar State. The city has positioned itself as a cultural staple adopting the nickname The Live Music Capital of the World. Anyone whose experienced an Austin City Limits, or South by South West festival would hardly disagree. Between Austin’s festival scenes, and UT-Austin’s collegiate culture and sports legacy, there’s little wonder if anything special can come from the Capital City.
Wande, born Yewande Isola, is a budding Hip Hop artist dynamic performer, Austin, TX native that is here to inspire. Using her infectious rap skills and personality, she accomplished an impressive 11-song release cycle in 2018 that featured a mix of features and original songs, earning her a Rapzilla,com Freshman nod for 2018, and launching her rap career. The momentum culminated in her being offered a recording contract offer from Reach Records where she worked as an A&R administrator and would become the first woman artist in the label’s 16 year legacy. “It was fulfilling knowing my work didn’t go unnoticed, given how much effort I put in,” said Wande.Ç
It wasn’t all just music. With Instagram as her preferred social media outlet, Wande grew her audience to over 10K followers with a daily regimen of photos and videos that spoke messages of hope, faith, and creative inspiration. “It’s encouraging getting to interact with people all over the world and see firsthand the impact these little nuggets can have on people.” “It also encouraged me to keep going with my music career based on the love and feedback I was getting from people,” Wande said.
