The third and most personal album from soul and gospel star Izo FitzRoy is a stunning and powerful reflection on her personal journey.
A journey that starts with becoming disconnected from herself through depression, and finally coming home to herself. A reclamation of what it means to her to be a woman today and how that sonically translates to her as an artist.
The album takes Izo’s songs to a new territory which is vibrant and ecstatic musically, with lyrics ranging from introspective and soul searching to uplifting and empowering.
In Izo's own words...
“The title track ‘A Good Woman’ sums up the essence of the album. A take on what it means to be ‘a good woman’ in society. What labels we are given as women, or the roles we feel we need to fill to be seen as ‘good’ or ‘successful’.
The album is in part autobiographical and takes a wider look at being a woman in a male dominated industry and living in a patriarchal society. I tried to look at the myriad of ways that women, (myself included), have given away their autonomy and power to institutions, labels and people”.
The album is the first fruit of a production collaboration with Oscar De Jong of Dutch electronic act Kraak & Smaak for whom Izo has previously guested.
“I have been incredibly fortunate to work with Oscar who is not only a phenomenal musician and producer, but he is also an immensely open and supportive collaborator. This album has been a collaborative process from start to finish: from writing and recording, to the final production of each track”.
