iZZiE's music conjures something that stays effervescing in your head in a pop induced frenzy for days, tantalizing your musical tastebuds with flavours from electronica to electro through dance into rock and even Goth with a buzz of industrial and a tinge of something sparkly from the 80's.

Biography

A name that sticks in your head.
A name that came out of the mouth
of the mate of a girl who went to
great lengths to ignore all musical trend
and go her own way -
and said because he felt that what he
had heard had cast a spell.

And boy, does it ever?

iZZiE's music conjures something that stays
effervescing in your head in a pop induced
frenzy for days, tantalizing your musical taste
buds with genre bending flavours that cross
synthpop, electroclash, rock and dance with
an industrial buzz, an occasional gothic
undertone, a tinge of something sparkly
from the 80's, and enough eccentricity to be
genuinely English.

How could you fail to like it?

The Promo "Control Freak E.P." is Izzie's
most delicious offering to date, comprising
three hook- laden shimmering jewels of songs
that would all justly adorn the upper reaches
of the charts.

At the start of this year, a preliminary version
of the title track was entered into the huge
'Song Of The Year's January round, only to be
inadvertently overlooked! Apparently S.O.T.Y's
organisers were so incensed by this, believing it
to be such an excellent song, that they re -
entered it for her in March. It wowed a judging
panel of Grammy Award Winners, major record
labels, individuals from Rolling Stone Magazine,
professional songwriters and individuals who have
worked with world renowned rock and pop stars -
and proceeded to crash directly to the winning post,
taking Song Of the Year '09 by storm -
all before it was even out of the studio.
Now ready for the public, the promo has already
received some preliminary radio play and
is being touted as a major hit for the future by
all who have heard it.

There are plenty more excellent original songs
in iZZiE's locker. Last year's 12 track offering was
met with considerable plaudits and critical acclaim,
being described by various music journalists as
"modern fire with 80's electro, laced with punk
energy and pop seasoning"; "slickly delivered
rock electronica"; and "an exhilarating and
electrifying outing from this visionary digital
experimentalist".
The lead single "Sound" was itself a 2007 Song
of the Year award finalist. Unfortunately the
opportunity for the album to reach the mass
audience that it deserved and to scale the heights,
was lost through the amateurish bungling of the
release record label which procured sub-standard
mastering, inappropriate marketing and PR and
inadequate distribution and which eventually folded.
The album was temporarily deleted in the new year
at iZZiE's direction with the intention of releasing
a revamped version once a suitable label has
been identified.

Free of her previous label, iZZiE is supported
for now by her own enterprise,
Lippy Trip Records (PR), which she originally
launched to promote electronica crossover bands
and artists in connection with her genre - busting
and highly acclaimed worldwide promotion podshow,
VQS New Music (aka The Voodoo Quota Show).

The songs from the "Control Freak EP" and a selection
from the album, including dance favourite "Sound",
the spine chillingly vivid "Dry Heat" and hugely popular
'rock-song' "Pyromania" form the basis of iZZiE's
dramatic live set. Along with stage cohorts,
Lawrence Mahmood (electric bass/projection imagery)
and Sarah Bird (additional vocals), 'iZZiE Voodoo Live'
takes every show audience by storm, parading iZZiE's
outstanding material, with as much determination
and vibrancy as you might expect from someone who
is steeped in theatre and martial arts.

We, then? We stand enlightened and refreshed and
we watch the show unfold until the right major label
deservedly swings in izzie's direction

Lyrics

Control Freak

Written By: iZZiE Voodoo

Several hours to go and i can see my feet
i can hear myself thinking and it seems pretty neat
burning friction from the vinyl and the streamers on the floor

Inking colours, chromey lovers
ideal world in fake silk covers
grab yourself a week with a control freak

black trip, flag hit
only a mad flip out
of this world
cos it's all lip
running about, turn it around
blaming everyone else
all for nothing

Sushi Bar

Written By: iZZiE Voodoo

Hey what's the word? You've been hanging round my house all day and
Hey what's the word? Cause you sold the rights to pry today and
yes- it's my car- it has wheels and it takes me far a ho a hoo hoo
i don't like you

Hey can i see? you have tones of people watching me and
hey crazy bee did you see yourself on news tv?
and yes my guitar is the one i played in Sushi Bar?a ho a ho ho

Hey, it's taboo how you're screwing with my plans for you
and hey, this tattoo of me... simply isn't good for you and
yes it's bizarre- it is strange, are you some superstar?
Hey whats the word? You've been hanging round my house all day and
Hey what's the word? Cause you sold the rights to pry today and
yes- it's my car- it has wheels and it takes me far a ho a hoo hoo

i don't like you
i don't
i dont like you
i don't
don't like you
i don't.. i don't

Hole

Written By: iZZiE Voodoo

We are fiction- crave addiction
we're still moving just keep driving
close your eyes were almost home

feel im tied i cannot use it
i guess i'm right, I cant refuse it
I cant fight or i might lose it
seems to me that i'm in a hole

we are tension- weird dimension
gotta see this, can't percieve it
when everything is spinning round and round...

see, i'm chained i cannot use it
I guess i'm burned and you are cruising
I cant fault or i my lose it
seems to me im in a hole

we are fiction -strange affliction
were connected unprotected
don't close your eyes, we're not alone
