Izo FitzRoy’s recent album ‘A Good Woman’ was a tour de force, her stunning vocal elegance and engaging lyrical talking points standing atop a vibrant blend of timeless soul, classic R&B and vigorous funk. The album garnered extensive airplay support from renowned stations like BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 2, NPO2 (NL) and FIP (France), while Jazz FM honored it as their 'Album of the Week' and playlisted an astonishing 5 singles.
Remixes by Art of Tones, Colleen Murphy, Moods and Sam Redmore have kept the heat going all summer long and Izo now wraps up the album campaign with a final single ‘Black Insides’.
‘Black Insides’ was recorded during sessions for ‘A Good Woman’, but was reluctantly left off the final album which simply goes to show how strong an album it is.
Izo tells us “Black Insides is a reflective song, about the pitfalls of blaming one another when a relationship falls to pieces. How “taking shots” at another eventually leads back to an even greater sense of shame in oneself. The song starts and ends with the same dreamlike harmonic sequence which mirrors the lyrical theme - you can’t escape your own emotional turmoil by projecting it onto someone else. It always comes back round again”.
Izo FitzRoy has been touring extensively in the UK and Europe since the release of “A Good Woman” and will play a second sold out London show at The Jazz Café on 5th September.
