Izzie Derry

The BBC Introducing Stage / Friday
Izzie Derry

Izzie performed in public for the first time at the age of 15, after which she was immediately offered several gigs, including a spot at the Godiva Festival. Since then, she has performed in venues all over the UK and released 5 records as well as several singles.

Izzie moved from her hometown of Coventry in 2017 to live on a boat in Brighton, where she is currently based. This is where Izzie joined forces with her band, which has allowed her to enhance both her live performance and the instrumentation on her records.

The first release they worked on together was her EP ‘Lost At Sea’, released on the 24th April 2019. These 5 tracks take us on a journey of self-discovery, finding inner strength and growing up. In-keeping with her raw and natural sound, the EP was recorded live at a church in Hove, East Sussex.

The single from ‘Lost At Sea’, entitled ‘Learn To Grow’ managed to reach the ears of Grammy Award winning Producer Roger Lomas, who expressed an interest in working with Izzie. Together they created a re-mix of her track ‘Learn To Grow’ which was released in January 2020.

They then continued to work together on her latest EP ‘Take It From Me’ which was released in February 2020. They recorded in Roger’s studio, where everyone played at the same time which Izzie claims ‘allowed everyone to bounce off of each others energy, which gave the tracks rawness and a great vibe’. This EP has been described as ‘her best yet’ in many reviews, as Izzie explores new genres, new arrangement styles and writes from her most mature perspective yet.

In just 6 years Izzie has released 5 records, performed headline shows all over the UK and supported artists such as Fairport Convention, Olly Murs and Courtney Marie Andrews. Her achievements also include BBC Introducing Coventry and Warwickshire Artist of the Month for September 2017 and the Touch FM Pride of Warwick Award 'Young Achiever of the Year'. She’s certainly one to look out for!
