Izo Fitzroy attended the AHA Spring Gap Year Course back in 2004 and has just released her new song, ‘Michael Coins’. Below is a brief biography and links to the song and a recent review.
‘After AHA I ventured up north to attend Glasgow University where I began studying music. Dropped out as it was far too theoretical and dry, and I began writing and singing my own songs, more for my own entertainment than anything else. I then started to do gigs around Glasgow, got a band together where we began doing festivals around Scotland. I was then in 2009, nominated as ‘Scotland’s most Stylish Artist’ alongside Bobby Gillespie, Calvin Harris and Sharleen Spiteri but Sharleen pipped me to the post!
After that moved to London and continued working on my band ‘Izo FitzRoy &The Royal Bastards’ whilst also training to become a Voice Coach at Central School of Speech and Drama. I now work full time as a musician and a voice coach.’
