First Listen: The UK’s Izzy Bizu Has A “Moment of Madness”

(October 7, 2016)  Izzy Bizu is a 22-year old British singer/songwriter who released her debut album for Epic Records, A Moment of Madness, on September 6.  Bizu’s advance singles from that album have been getting significant airplay from BBC Radio over the past year, and she has supported Sam Smith and other UK R&B notables on their latest tours.  Her music is a delicious mix of old and new school soul/R&B topped by her distinctive, attention-demanding voice, which has a lovely warmth, thickness and texture.

We feature here two tracks, “Diamond,” a smooth ballad that opens her album, and a live version of  “Skinny,” a vibrant, hip-shakin’ tribute to the thin men she loves. Fans of Corinne Bailey Rae, Amy Winehouse and other UK artists with memorable voices are likely to enjoy Bizu’s music. This artist has the goods, SoulTrackers, give her a listen!
