Though she was born and bred in London, Izo FitzRoy’s latest single ‘Day By Day’ comes infused with the molasses thick soul and funk of the Deep South. Having sung in gospel choirs from the age of 19, she waded knee deep in the musical magic that permeates New Orleans, working with local jazz and blues musicians including Grammy winners Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentlemen.
Lifted from her forthcoming debut album Skyline which lands in stores this Friday, February 24th via Jalapeno Records, “Day By Day” features production courtesy of Dr Rubberfunk and bristles with low slung, sanctified swampiness coupled with FitzRoy’s restrained powerhouse vocals. Steeped in the roots of soul, funk and gospel, this single provides a window into the world of a raw, fiercely voiced singer-songwriter.
Listen to “Day By Day”—plus previous teaser tracks “Reckoning,” “Hope You Can Wait,” “Say Something,” and “Here I Come”—below and hear the wonder within.
