The Isaacs are a true family band, comprised of matriarch and singer Lily Isaacs, daughter Sonya on vocals and mandolin, daughter Rebecca on vocals and guitar, son Ben on upright bass and vocals, and John Bowman, Rebecca's husband, on banjo.

Lily Isaacs is the daughter of two Holocuast survivors from Poland. She grew up in the Bronx and appeared in Off Broadway productions before her gospel music career.
