Raw, dynamic performances and honest songwriting. That’s what it’s all about with Jalapeno Records newest signing, blues songstress - Izo FitzRoy.
A Londoner born-and-bred, Izo’s music is influenced by the raw power of female blues legends like Janis Joplin as well as the heartfelt lyricism of soul men such as Bill Withers fused with her own gospel roots from years spent singing in, leading and directing touring choirs.
Her songs are built for performance, sincere and compelling lyrics delivered over tight and melodic grooves. She effortlessly transitions them from the recorded versions to the live stage with her band’s unique 7 piece line-up, shunning typical soul instrumental combinations to instead feature 4 gospel backing vocalists. This vocal arsenal provides the perfect foil of uplifting harmonies to her powerful lead vocal and jazz tinged keys work, setting her apart from contemporaries and making for exciting live shows.
