Izah Short Info

Izah is a young songwriter and soul singer born in Manchester but raised in Barcelona. Her first official release was “Izah Blues” (2013, Little Red Corvette Records), a five--‐track EP that mixed contemporary R&B, classic Soul and Jazz. With it she gained a significant impact on Spanish media (‘One More Day’s video clip was recommended during the whole month of December 2013 by MTV Spain, ‘A.Cér.Ca.Te’ became ‘Súper Sol’ video clip in Sol Música TV, ‘Izah Blues’ was ranked in the Top 10 most relevant national releases of the year by Playground Magazine, and was number 1 in Soul Spain), and she was quickly announced by national media as the ‘Spanish Soul Queen’ (Playground Magazine) or the ‘New Soul Princess’ (El Periódico).This took her to some of the most relevant festivals in the country, such as the Black Music Festival in Girona, Cruïlla festival in Barcelona, Mas I Mas Festival also in Barcelona, where she opened for Aloe Blacc in the renowned theatre Palau de la Música, and Say It Loud Festival being lead artist together with Myles Sanko.

Later this year, she released a joy venture album called ‘Mindland’ (2014, Little Red Corvette
Records) with producers RCA Flacos. An experimental EP that travels from Jazz, Soul and Funk to Hip Hop. This underground--‐oriented project received great reviews and opened a new window in Izah’s musical evolution into electro--‐soul sounds. Her live performances were described by national newspaper La Vanguardia as ‘A truly neo soul diva that combines vanguard and Soul’. She also performed at the last edition of Hipnotik Festival in Barcelona as top of the bill with other top Spanish artists like Fyahbwoy, Sho--‐Hai and French Dj crew Birdy Nam Nam.

It is in May 2015 that Izah releases her first album (LP), ‘Now or Never’ (2015 Little Red Corvette Records). Eleven original tracks of contemporary Soul music with a 90’s R&B aroma
In which Izah has composed both melody and lyrics. The album has received remarkable national and international media attention and great reviews (‘Izah compares to a split--‐open bud perfect flower, which aroma stupefies consciousness’, Music) making it today’s most solid piece of national soul music. The first single was ‘Now or Never’ and its video clip was premiered by El País and again had remarkable rotation on national music televisions. The song was also aired on Spanish national music radio station M80 and even in specialized British radio stations as Mi--‐Soul or Solar Radio.

Recently, Izah has released a maxi with remixes of her second single ‘My Man’. Originally produced by 52nd Street member John Dennison, has been remixed, among others, by the legendary Mancunian producers K--‐Klass, who back in the 90’s worked with Janet Jackson, Luther Vandross, Lisa Stansfield and Whitney Houston, to name a few.

Izah’s live performances are a reflection of her vision of music. Impossible to label in a couple of words, the boundaries between genres dissolve, giving her concerts mixed parts of Soul, R&B, Jazz, and Hip Hop sounds. With a band of 6 musicians, most coming from the jazz world, Izah offers a balanced experience with best of both worlds, organic and electronic. Her perfect combination of sweet, sensual and powerful soulful voice, makes Izah belong both in small jazz clubs and big festival stages.
