Isabel Guzman was born in Sweden and brought up by her Swedish mother and Bolivian father. In the last year of high school she was part of a group who modelled themselves on Blondie meets No Doubt. Despite being immediately signed to a major record company and releasing the first single, Isabel decided to go it alone for her album. It took a long time though despite the possibility of rushing into a follow-up as soon as she'd left the band. Isabel had to find the right record company. It ended up being an independent, a choice that allowed her complete freedom to do what she wanted.
