The news follows a phenomenal few months for Izzy Bizu; performing at the BRIT Awards ITV2 after party on Wednesday, selling out Scala to critical praise, and inimitable track ‘White Tiger’ now gaining over 6M Spotify streams and 1M YouTube views.
Being voted the ‘#1 Freshest Faces for 2016’ by the Evening Standard, and tipped as ‘One To Watch’ in the Guardian, Independent, The Times, Daily Mail, The Sun, Grazia, and Noisey, the 21-year-old South London born singer and songwriter is quickly proving herself as one of the most exciting breakthrough British artists of 2016.
Born to an Ethiopian mother and English father, Izzy’s rich cultural tapestry has informed her soulful indie soundscape. Growing up on a diet of Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Winehouse and Marvin Gaye, Izzy’s delicate acoustic threads those nostalgic funk-and-soul elements with a genuine indie spirit.
