Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s sister bags record deal and we can’t cope with this much talent in one family

Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s sister bags record deal and we can’t cope with this much talent in one family

It must be tough when Phoebe Waller-Bridge – the recent winner of a gazillion awards and all-round writing extraordinaire – is your little sister.

But it turns out Isobel Waller-Bridge is just as much of a prodigy as her sibling and has only gone and bagged a record deal?

The 35-year-old – who’s best known for writing the music for Fleabag – has signed to the post-classical label Mercury KX

There’s too much talent in this family, now. Someone needs to put a stop to this.

Isobel, who scored Emma, Black Mirror and Vanity Fair, has released a new single, September to celebrate the big news.Y

The composer, who began learning the piano aged four (of course), signed to the label ahead of her second album’s release.

The 34-year-old felt she hadn’t fully prepared her loved ones for the ‘strange explosion’ of the show.

‘The people closest to me didn’t invite that [attention],’ she said on the How To Fail With Elizabeth Day podcast 

Phoebe said viewers started assuming Fleabag’s sister ‘super high-powered, perfect, anorexic, rich super sister’ Claire was based on Isobel.

‘There’s so much over-familiarity that comes with that: people assuming that Iso [her sister] is like Claire,’ she said.

‘And also people just assuming that so much of it is true. That bleeds into my family’s life when the show’s going out because, weirdly, they are having to defend our family.’
