Heather Isbell - Volunteer Director

Heather Isbell was raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and later moved, to Little Rock, Arkansas. She is the Cobra Cellist and one of the “Viper Vixens” in the Mark Wood Band Experience, New York. Heather and her husband Robert own and operate IZZY’S Restaurant in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Heather’s father, Ed Cobb, was a performer, song writer, and record producer in Los Angles, CA. No doubt, Heather’s love for music came from the countless hours she spent in the recording studio with her father witnessing some of the biggest albums in history come alive, such as Fleetwood Mac, Steely Dan, and Pink Floyd. Cobb also wrote songs for many of his acts, most famously 1966's "Dirty Water" for The Standells, 1965's "Every Little Bit Hurts" for Brenda Holloway, and 1966's "Tainted Love", which would later be made a International hit by Soft Cell in the 1980’s.

“We all have a talent or skill that can make a difference in the lives of others. It is important to me to give back the passion for music that was instilled in me as a child from my parents and wonderful teachers. I know first hand what a difference music has made in my life. I feel it is my duty to give back to the next generation and pass on the tools to find their own passion.”
