We’ve teamed up with Oregon Automotive to support aspiring local artists who are trying to make it. Each month, we'll be highlighting talented up and comers in the great PNW. Discover Who's NEXT in the Northwest: I$$A.

"I$$A is one of the hardest working and promising artists hailing from Portland. He has traveled and worked internationally alongside heavyweights like Akon. I$$A continues to build his brand and elevate his visibility and presence here within the Pacific Northwest music and entertainment scene" -Cool Nutz

Born in Dakar in Senegal, West Africa, I$$A now calls Portland, Oregon home. Learn more about I$$A at his website, and check out his music here. His highly anticipated new album, Bambi, drops June 30th.
