From child star to rock star
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - September 23, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Isabella de Leon, known to many as Duday in the TV sitcom Daddy Didodu, has recently signed up with Polyeast Records, and is eagerly anticipating the release of her debut album.

Tentatively called The Love Project, the album features all-original material that showcases her songwriting genius, her instrumental flair as well as her devout Christian faith. “I just really want to share my God-given talents to the world, and be a source of joy and inspiration,” she says.

On stage, Isabella is a concert livewire, strumming her acoustic guitar with rhythmic ferocity as her husky voice effortlessly fuses elements of folk, rock, pop into her unique, signature sound.

At first impression, shades of Taylor Swift or Alanis Morissette easily come to mind, although Isabella draws from a more eclectic catalogue of influences which include The Beatles, Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, the Carpenters, Led Zeppelin, Steven Tyler, Robbie Williams, U2, Coldplay, Michael Jackson, Katy Perry, Adele, Enya and Noel Cabangon.

She also acknowledges her dad as her biggest fan and critic, who also taught her to play guitar, bass, drums, piano and harmonica.

As an actress, she also garnered a FAMAS Best Child Actress award for her role in Magnifico (2003), and also appeared in a string of TV shows including Love to Love, Mulawin, Fantastikids, Mga Mata ni Anghelita, Nasaan Ka, Elisa? and movies such as Bahay ni Lola, Super-B, Sanib, Padre de Pamilya, Litsonero and Soliloquy.
