Isaac O’Sullivan, also known by his recently adopted alter-ego, Letterbox Kid, is a 22 year old
singer/songwriter, rapper, and producer hailing from Cork City. Originally from the Waterford side of the
border, Isaac began his life in music with a concept album called ‘A Live’. Here, Isaac pessimistically
questioned what it meant to live in society and the fabrics that held it together, as well as the mental
hardships he reluctantly endured during his schooling years. After the release of this minimalist, part
spoken word, part singer-songwriter acoustic expedition, Isaac organised a launch gig and sold tickets on foot in his local area. Soon after, Isaac performed two more sets at local Summer music festivals.
Since then, and with entry to the prestigious Cork School of Music and graduation with First Class
Honors, Isaac has improved drastically as a musician and artist studying under renowned musical minds
such as former Van Morrison guitarist Johnny Scott & illustrious producer 1000Beasts. Throughout the
pandemic Isaac worked rigorously on his debut EP, titled ‘Elegant For A Rogue & Skinny For A
Bastard’, which was released on all major streaming platforms in November of 2021. The EP consists of
trap beats, slurred bars and emotional highs as Isaac starts to find his home as the Letterbox Kid in an
unusual mix of trap, rap, and soul, inspired by the likes of Jeff Buckley, Kanye West, King Krule, &
Travis Scott to name a few. Since then and with an array of successes in the gigging world, working with artists such as Houseplants and Arthur Valentine, and being asked to perform in the Cork Rising event in Cyprus Avenue which showcased Corks' hottest new talent, the Letterbox Kid has released two new singles to great applause, garnering editorial playlist spots for his song ‘BUGATTI’ on A Breath Of Fresh Eire.
The Letterbox Kids’ latest release, ‘I Never Blink’, is out now on all streaming platforms. Here, the
Letterbox Kid enters a familiar world of striking synths and dark cinematic soundscapes, as he creates a
planet on which to delve his deepest and darkest emotions and all that comes with them. Bar after bar of
hard-hitting production and passionate vocal displays, with the song being created from top to bottom by the Letterbox Kid himself. It will be a statement as his second release of 2023 as we start to see the
musical and artistic progression of the Letterbox Kid unfold before our very eyes. The quality from the
Letterbox Kid is not about to drop any time soon as he plans several releases this year.
