Izo Fitzroy - Skyline album review

The best of Blues you can get this month

Cover Art for Izo Fitzroy - Skyline

Speaking of hungry young divas, Izo Fitzroy’s Skyline is an impressive opening statement, the Londoner’s sand-and-smoke voice driving an eight-piece band on contemporary gospel songs with themes of poverty, mental breakdown and death.

Hearing her work through the gears on the slow-burn Day By Day, or lead the funky Heads Held High with shades of Beth Hart, there’s no doubting her potential.
