Mesmerising soul, blues and gospel vibes get seriously funked up by singer-songwriter IZO FITZROY as she makes a very welcome return to Hideaway with her full band!
“Serious heavyweight action, it's reminiscent of New Orleans funk, think The Meters, Dr John - but with a very UK-centric outlook.” CLASH MAGAZINE
The blues has always had a place in British life - in fact, it can sometime seem as though a tributary of the Mississippi Delta runs through the Thames valley. Izo Fitzroy hails from London, yet her husky voice and powerful delivery sound more like Chicago's south side circa 1964. Imagine Etta James working with a funky backbeat and you'd be close, with Izo Fitzroy stamping her own individuality over each song.
With uplifting harmonies delivered alongside her powerful lead vocal and jazz tinged keys work, Izo's unique sound instantly sets set her apart from contemporaries and has 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.
With a rare combination of powerful vocals, honest song writing and dynamic live performances, Izo Fitzroy's music is a unique and captivating blend of Southern fried funk, soul, gospel and blues. Now's the time to jump on board and catch Izo with her full live band for one steamy, steamy night of musical power!
