A YOUNG singing star from Hampshire is set the release her own songs following her musical success on hit TV talent show.

Teenager Isla Croll, from Locks Heath, will be releasing her debut single, ‘All about you’ later this month.

The 15-year-old jazz singer made it to the semi-finals of ITV’s The Voice Kids UK as part of pop star Paloma Faith’s group.

The Brookfield Community School student set up her old playroom as a home studio, with dad Robert, to write and produce her own music.

Isla said: “We had a microphone, some headphones and we brought down mattresses for sound proofing!

“It was really good, really fun, it kept me busy during lockdown and I was doing something that I really love.”

Isla’s song ‘All about you’ is a reflection on her childhood.

She added: “It’s not about a specific event but more about the different things that have happened whilst I was growing up with my friends, watching friendship groups and how people treat each other. It is about me growing up and learning life lessons.

“I hope people relate to it and it is a message about moving on and telling people they are worth it.”

“People will be expecting it to be a jazz single but I want to venture into other genres.”

Talking about the TV show, Isla said: “It was such a good experience, everyone was so lovely. It has set me up so well.”

Isla’s mum Queen Croll said: “It was fun. I am proud. It is nice to hear her voice from different influences.

"Playing with different sounds as been exciting to watch. She just loves it.”

The song is set to be released on October 23 on all music streaming platforms.
