Isotopia Records is Heresy’s new imprint. New York-based Isotopia was founded by American opera star Constance Hauman together with Heresy Records CEO, Eric Fraad. Isotopia will focus on popular music, dance music and fusions of classical and jazz.
Mr. Fraad says of Isotopia, “Along with Constance we are signing some truly game changing artists who have the potential to capture the imagination of a wide public and at the same time remain on the cutting edge of their genres.”
Isotopia is distributed and promoted by the Naxos Group of Companies worldwide.
Istopia’s debut release is FALLING INTO NOW by Constance Hauman. With it, she makes her debut as a pop chanteuse and a skilled and emotionally trenchant songwriter. The album presents a cycle of songs that are conceptually and affectively linked and which recount Ms Hauman’s odyssey from the edge of darkness to a land of new beginnings and illumination.
The 14 songs on the album document the pain and complexity of broken relationships, betrayal and the fortitude one manifests in both integrating and leaving the past behind. While FALLING INTO NOW recounts a deeply personal journey, it is one that anyone who has known love and loss can both relate to and empathize with.
