VEVO DSCVR Presents: Izzy Bizu

Back in August of 2015, we posted Alessia Cara’s performance of “Here” which was presented to us by Vevo dscvr. Shortly after, we suggested to Vevo via social media that we thought our girl Izzy Bizu would be a great fit for their platform. Izzy agreed!

A few months later in December of 2015, Vevo notified us that they posted Izzy’s performance of “What Makes You Happy” on their Vevo dscvr channel. In addition, she was also selected for Vevo dscvr’s, “Ones To Watch” in 2016 which was super awesome and very exciting news to our ears!

To date, Izzy’s performance of “What Makes You Happy” on Vevo dscvr has garnered 300k+ views. We’re both happy and grateful that we can play a role in the development of such a talented young artist’s career. She’s just getting started!

Izzy Bizu – Adam & Eve (w/Bonus Track)

I remember my first post almost 2 years ago on how I initially came across the lovely and talented, Izzy Bizu. To have the opportunity to both witness and play a role in spreading awareness on her projects early in her career is very fulfilling. Identifying emerging talent upon entry into the commercial marketplace is something that I have a deep passion for!

2 years later, and now 21 years of age, Izzy only continues to blossom into a more experienced and seasoned artist, performer, and storyteller. She now has the backing of a major label after inking a deal with Epic Records. She has supported major acts such as Jamie Cullum, Milky Chance, and Sam Smith. She is also in the process of recording her debut album which is due to be released sometime this year.

Here is the video for her newest release entitled, “Adam & Eve”…Enjoy!

…Are you searching for more ear candy? Here is another lovely release from Izzy entitled, “Diamond” which is a super smooth cut!

Izzy Bizu is an 19-year-old singer songwriter hailing from South West London. Born to an Ethiopian Mother and English Father, she grew up listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Bettye Swann, Betty Wright and James Brown and draws on these alongside newer influences, Amy Winehouse and Adele to create a fusion of soul, funk, jazz, and pop that sounds classic and brand spanking new all at once.

She performed at the ILUVLIVE Open Mic in February 2013 winning over the crowd, which included Emeli Sande and Naughty Boy. Needless to say, she won and performed at the following months ILUVLIVE to another rapturous response. Since then, she has gained enormous interest from music industry heavyweights and is fast becoming one of the most highly anticipated acts of 2014. Izzy released her acoustic EP entitled “Coolbeanz” in September of 2013 and is currently signed to Epic Records.
