Drawing influence from classics like Bettye Swann and Ella Fitzgerald is Izzy Bizu, the latest songwriter to make soul relevant once again. She first made her mark on the music scene earlier this year when she appeared at an open mic night entitled ILUVLIVE. Since that performance, she has been pushing forward and released two new singles to high praise no less.
“White Tiger” makes simple use of a keyboard and the occasional clap of the hands to pave a path for Bizu‘s staggered and sincere vocals. The bare sound of “White Tiger” is commonplace in Bizu‘s work insofar; other songs of hers such as “Hit The High Road” and “Deep Blue Sea” showcase her light voice alongside an acoustic guitar and warm, broken keys.
Since her ILUVLIVE performance(s), she has continued to garner attention from music industry buffs as she works on her acoustic EP. Having already begun to find her niche amongst artists like Esperanza Spalding and Emeli Sandé, we can be certain that Izzy Bizu will be a name to lookout for in the coming months.
