Raw, dynamic performances and beautifully honest songwriting. That’s what it’s all about with Jalapeno Records newest signing, blues songstress – Izo FitzRoy. Izo’s music is influenced by the power of female blues legends like Janis Joplin, Susan Tedeschi and Beth Hart infused with her own gospel roots from years spent singing in, leading and directing touring choirs.
Unafraid to touch on the difficult subjects she delivers an assured and varied debut with recurring themes of overcoming struggles and being confident in your own skin – a message that can resonate with everyone and one that seems even more important today than ever.
Uplifting harmonies delivered via her powerful lead vocal and jazz tinged keys work, set her apart from contemporaries and have won her plays on BBC 6 Music, BBC London, a ‘Heavy Rotation’ feature on NPR in the US and strong support from the likes of Clash Magazine, Indie Shuffle, Eton Messy, La Belle Musique.
Her debut album ‘Skyline’ is due for release early 2017.
