British singer-songwriter, Izzy Bizu, is a star in the making. She burst onto the scene with the spirited, up-tempo single “White Tiger,” from her 2013 EP Coolbeanz. The lead single showcased her raspy vocals over an infectious beat that highlighted a brilliantly delivered falsetto. Since then, she’s landed on the BBC’s Sound of 2016 poll and followed up that success with the recent release of her highly anticipated full debut album A Moment of Madness. Although Izzy is only 22, you can detect clear influences from Amy Winehouse, Ella Fitzgerald, and Marvin Gaye on the 17 track project. She routinely infuses jazz, pop and soul with retro leanings into her beautifully layered vocals and intimate storytelling. Izzy is definitely one to keep watching as she continues to offer a refreshing twist of individuality that sounds polished, yet unmanufactured!
