Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, IISMA developed an interest in music at a very early age listening to mostly Salsa. Moving from Puerto Rico to the USA he became exposed to the R&B and Soul Scene.
In 2018 IISMA released his first single entitled "RUN." which got international radio play, and in May he released "Hold Me" alongside the talented Gwendolyn Collins. "Hold Me" made it to number 5 on the US Soulcharts which lead him to perform with Gwendolyn Collins in Maryland (USA) and London (UK) during The Virgo Lounge SoulSessions.
