Izo Fitzroy has shared a refreshing live-in-the-studio take on ‘Give Me The High’.
The London artist was infatuated by music from a young age, eventually studying it in Glasgow. It took a life-changing trip to New Orleans, however, for the pieces to fall into place – drawn to vintage soul, funk, R&B, and gospel, she returned to the UK completely invigorated.
A fantastic live performer, Izo’s fusion of soul and funk feels completely natural, with debut album ‘A Good Woman’ landing on April 28th. Hitting London’s Jazz Cafe that very same evening, it’s set to be a summer of celebration for this special artist.
Ahead of this, she’s shot a live performance of album highlight ‘Give Me The High’. The choppy guitar riff recalls Curtis Mayfield, while the vocal soars between Barbara Lynn and Sharon Jones.
The fantastic interplay between the musicians in her band provides the perfect foundation for her performance, with Izo FitzRoy displaying every inch of her artistry.
The film was shot at The Pool in Bermondsey, South London, with director Jodie Canwell piecing it all together. Izo comments…
“‘Give Me The High’ is a song I wrote about the shimmering ecstasy of new love. It was an amazing experience to head back to the Pool Studios to record these tracks live. Not only is it a phenomenal space, but I am also in the hugely lucky position of performing with some incredibly talented musicians and singers. Hearing these tracks come to life, and take on a new world of their own was so wonderful”.
Tune in now.
