BIO

Originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, I am an independent musician who has bounced around between the US and Asia recording out of a wheely-bag under the name Cousin Isaac for the past few decades.

These days I pretty much stay put in California ever since one of the cats that my girlfriend and I brought back from Laos got injured, requiring round-the-clock care, turning me into a full-time kitty daddy. Meanwhile, my other cat keeps me up all night yowling.

So now I am attempting the near-impossible: to re-brand and jump start my musical career under the yoke of my feline overlords.  Wish me luck!

Video preview of Isaac Toast holding bass discussing why he is taking so long to release Horse's Mouth

What’s taking so long?

So… I don’t really play bass. I mean, I don’t play it like an actual bass player. Same with guitar. And piano. And drums. That is to say, I can mess around on these instruments, write songs, and make music that to my ear sounds good- and that is all that matters to me. But,…...

I just can't take it no more video by Isaac Toast

I Just Can’t Take it No More

Here’s another work in progress track I’ve had in my head for years and am only now recording. The lyrics sound like a cry for help but, like a lot of my songs, they really just sounded good to me. I added the last verse recently, which turned the song into being about giving up…...

"Subjugated By the Feline" video by Isaac Toast

Subjugated by the Feline

So… my life is basically all cats all the time. I am a full time kitty daddy ever since our little Peanut went missing around the beginning of the pandemic. I found her two days later all messed up. Its a long story but basically the doctors suggested euthanasia, saying she may never walk again…...

Elbow Room Lyric Video Title Screen

Elbow Room

This is the track that got me back into doing music again after a years-long hiatus. I started recording it at the beginning of the Pandemic using Logic, to which I was new. So, it took me a while to get the hang of Logic and get back into the swing of making and writing…...

Off TV Cold Turkey

Hello, my name is Isaac Toast and I am a TV addict. Ever since I decided to make a last ditch effort to make music again, I’ve decided to completely give up TV. I’ve done this in the past a few times. When we lived in Japan we had no TV and thus I was…...

Got my new bass

My new Ibanez TMB35 Talman 5-String short neck bass arrived today.  I read the reviews so wasn’t expecting much, but wanted to try it for myself and there were very few 5 string short neck basses in my price range. Mainly, I wanted to replace the bass line in my new song “Horse’s Mouth” which…...

Horse's Mouth Preview

Horse’s Mouth

Here’s a preview of my work in progress: “Horse’s Mouth”. This will be my first single as Isaac Toast on my indie label idnote and will feature an intro by Jah Bonz. I wrote this song in my head decades ago- perhaps 3 of them. But as far as I recall I have never recorded…...

Hello World!

Welcome to my new musical life as Isaac Toast. Some of you may know me as Cousin Isaac.  Well, like 3 of you anyway. But even though I have only a few monthly listeners on Spotify, you can Google Cousin Isaac and at least I come up first and have my own knowledge panel. That…...
