Alongside our partnership with YouTube, Izzy Bizu featured in YouTube On The Rise Live.
Born to an Ethiopian mother and English father, who met on a charity walk, Izzy lived in the Middle East for four years, spending her free days playing rugby and cricket before settling in South London. Today, at 21-years old, Izzy has already supported Sam Smith on his UK tour and garnered early support from 1Xtra and BBC Radio1 on her Coolbeanz EP.
Drawing on her time moving countries, schools and the relationships that have entailed, Izzy is a cultural explorer, who draws on memories and unique experiences on moving tracks like White Tiger, Mad Behaviour, and Skinng. Whether she is annihilating you at table tennis, kicking dust in your face at table football, or out styling you, you’re bound to fall in love with Izzy’s voice, charisma, and that never-fading smile.
