Izzie performed in public for the first time at the age of 15, at a local Open Mic. After her first performance, she was offered several gigs, the first of which was a spot at the local Godiva Festival. She then spent the next few months performing in venues all over the West Midlands, and also released her first self titled EP, which consisted of 3 original tracks.
Izzie soon began working with a local record label called ‘Domesticated Records’, where she released 2 singles.
Then, in September 2016, Izzie released her second EP called ‘It’s Life’, which she recorded with Domesticated Records, but released as an independent artist.
Izzie then released her debut Album on the 27th May 2017. The album was featured on radio stations including: BBC Coventry and Warwickshire, Touch FM, and Radio Plus.
This lead to a string of live shows including support slots for the likes of Olly Murs, Courtney Marie Andrews and Hannah Trigwell, and performances at venues including the Genting Arena and the Belgrade Theatre. She was also named BBC Introducing Coventry and Warwickshire Artist of the Month for September 2017 and won the Touch FM Pride of Warwick Award 'Young Achiever of the Year' 2017.
Izzie is now working towards the release of her new EP, ‘Lost At Sea’, which will be released on the 24th April. In September 2017 Izzie decided to up sticks and live on a boat. The new EP consists of songs about finding herself out in the world on her own for the first time.
