The Texas based phenomenon Ishi’s ability to successfully walk the line between an ambitious studio act and a multi-sensory live experience allows him to engage the audience in an uplifting celebration of life. His subtle undertones of inner exploration combine to create a concert experience that is unequivocally one-of-a-kind. Each night, Ishi intends to create an entirely unique environment of mysticism, awareness, love and acceptance. Adored by fans and critics alike, there is no denying that Ishi is an immersive experience that everyone should discover. Last year Ishi released his third album 'Sweet Gold' and now is back with new music (new album is planned for 2024). Earlier this year Ishi teamed up with his friend and worldwide club phenomenon Maceo Plex on their collab 'Moon Sky' released on Maceo's Lone Romantic label. Hot off the back of that collaboration Ishi teamed up with fellow Dallas based artist Electrophunck on the new single Ride or Die which also got reworked by internationally acclaimed EDM-producer Oliver Nelson, and a ChopNotSlop mix by fellow Texan DJ Candlestick who recently remixed the whole Heroes & Villains album from Metro Boomin (!).

Ishi has established himself as an outsider phenomenon in Texas with a plethora of music ranging from nu-disco through synth-pop and indie-soulpop. Contributors including Medicine Man Revival, Nia Brock, Keite Young, and Cure for Paranoia. He's received praise everywhere from Run The Trap to the Dallas Observer, and remixes fr. CAPYAC, Kraak & Smaak, YUKSEK, Glamour Hammer and Oliver Nelson etc. He's also had a lot of great sync placements, most recently in the latest season of Atlanta, and playlisting placements incl. Retrowave//Outrun (Spotify), Coffee Club (Spotify) Metropolis (Spotify) Estate Chill (Spotify), Ripple Effect: Texas (Spotify), and New in R&B (Apple Music) Nightcap (Apple Music), indie + chill (Apple Music).
