Even if she wasn't already circumnavigating the globe with artists like Coldplay and Sam Smith, you get the feeling soulful, British singer Izzy Bizu
would still find ways to sink her teeth into other cultures. It's how she grew up, attending boarding school in London and Bahrain as a child. Those experiences have obviously had an influence the 24 year-old singer and might be why her music is currently making the rounds, pretty much everywhere. During a recent session with Izzy, we got to spend a little bit of time learning about the incredible journey's she's been on. From being in a teenage girl-band (that opened for Bieber) to recently sharing the stage with Coldplay, Izzy's journey is an inspiring one. Get the scoop in our extended interview.
