Uplifting harmonies delivered via Izo’s powerful lead vocal and jazz tinged keys work, set her apart from contemporaries and have won her play on BBC 6Music, BBC London, JazzFM, a FIP Selection award, the ‘Heavy Rotation’ feature on NPR in the US and strong support from the likes of Clash Magazine, Indie Shuffle, Eton Messy and La Belle Musique to name a few…
After years of directing gospel choirs Izo’s recording career took off in earnest after writing and recording the bulk of her debut album – ‘Skyline’ while she was living in New Orleans for the best part of a year. Production duties came courtesy of industry heavyweight - Dr Rubberfunk. This creative partnership flourished and quickly grew into a whole albums worth of material, producing a record that channelled her gutsy gospel style and colourful bluesy keys through the vintage funk grooves of the good Doctor.
After the success of the debut Izo has been in demand and touring across Europe tirelessly, all the while writing her next record and lending her talents to others, including features on tracks by Kraak & Smaak, Smoove & Turrell, Flevans, and Dr Rubberfunk.
2020 will see the release of her second album ‘How The Mighty Fall’ which sees her working with producers such as the Mercury award winning Colin Elliot, the evergreen Shawn Lee (Ubiquity, BBE Records) and the inimitable disco don - Dimitri From Paris.
