American alternative pop singer-songwriter Isaac Dunbar has released his new single, “Actor.”
Signed to RCA Records since 2019, Isaac Dunbar has released three extended plays (EPs) under the record label.
When Isaac was nine years old, he started making music for the first time, specifically electronic dance music (EDM). He was already a huge fan of Lady Gaga, but after hearing Madeon’s music, who was one of the producers working on Gaga’s Artpop album, he became even more motivated to pursue a career in music creation.
Isaac Dunbar educated himself on synthesizers and music theory by following courses provided on YouTube and by recreating songs from the Artpop genre.
The song “Pharmacy” by Isaac Dunbar was redistributed on October 31, 2017, via the website We Are Going Solo, which brought more recognition to his body of work.
Isaac Dunbar’s songs “Freshman Year” and “Blonde” gained additional attention during the end of 2018, and they received an additional boost when “Pharmacy” was played on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 radio show.
“Freshman Year” was initially premiered on The Fader on October 2, 2018. The song “Mime” by Isaac Dunbar made its world premiere on Wonderland on February 12th, 2019.
In July 2019, Isaac Dunbar released his debut EP Balloons Don’t Float Here, and Complex premiered his single “Ferrari.” In the fall of that year he toured with Girl in Red, and in November he appeared on MTV’s PUSH Live concert series.
Isaac Dunbar was signed to RCA Records in October 2019, and the company has planned for his debut album, titled Isaac’s Insects, to be released in April 2020.
The title single was made available on streaming services in January of 2020, and in the same month, Isaac Dunbar was included on Idolator’s list of artists to watch as well as E! “Future Pop Stars You Need to Know Now,” published by News.
The subsequent music video for “Makeup Drawer,” a song that he had written when he was only 14 years old, was then included in both Paper and Billboard.
Isaac Dunbar stated that the song held significant importance for him since his younger years. He added that he had been holding off on releasing this song until he was ready to discuss his encounters with homophobia in an open and honest manner. The song was included on Isaac’s Insects, which was released on April 9, 2020.
The North American and European leg of Isaac Dunbar’s tour was supposed to get underway on April 14, 2020 at Moroccan Lounge in Los Angeles, but it had to be rescheduled because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
