Dear whom it may concern,
My name is Miss Izzy Cox http://www.myspace.com/izzycox
i am currently looking for places
that appreciate diy music ..
I am a americana outlaw steam punk artist currently on my
14 album currently based in austin tx.
reviews on live performance.
when i opened up for the recounters (jack white)
Among them were singer/songwriter Izzy Cox and members from Rose’s Pawn Shop,
are part of the L.A. rockabilly scene. In addition to several dusty ballads, they
performed a stellar version of Johnny Cash’s “Ring of Fire” before clearing the
reviews on live show
Izzy Cox — "Love Letters from the Electric Chair
I have absolutely no intention of describing Izzy’s songs — words cannot express
…. and you really should just go see her sometime. Okay —
I will explain that “Lyin’ Eyes, Cheatin’ Heart” is a show shuffle with very sparse
instrumentation (she hardly needs anything else but herself),
and that “Man of the Cloth” (the final cut of 14 here) opens with some killer dobro
here she says she is not going to heaven —
after all, she shot her husband square in her front lawn. This, too, is basically a stipped down, slow ballad. Did I mention that this woman is truly special?
review on last album album
Love Letters From the Electric Chair
Austin’s got no shortage of bands with a taste for the macabre, so welcome murder
balladeer Izzy Cox to the hot seat. She’s Texan
and French-Canadian via California, a confluence that shapes Love Letters’ electrified
voodoo-billy with a Crampsy twist of Southern cabaret and silent-movie panache.
It’s the anti-book of love, 50 ways to grieve your lover.
review on live show
The first act was Izzy Cox. According to her Myspace page, Izzy “is an anarchist
crooner….she has coined the style Voodoobilly Jazz as her own”. Izzy hails
Austin, Texas, Hollywood, California, Brooklyn, New York and Montreal, Quebec, Canada. She also has an interesting background but I’ll let you read it on Myspace, at this time izzycox.com is coming soon. I like Izzy’s combination rockabilly, western swing, murder ballad style. She sings her heart out and with a lot of emotion and has a commanding stage presence. I felt that each song was a story and she wanted me to feel her pain, joy, happiness and sorrow. Tonight Izzy and her guitar, accompanied by Megan Harris on trumpet from Waco, Texas, were the band. Wow, two powerful women. Izzy is a must see performance and will be in the Austin area until March. I bought Izzy Cox’s Love Letters From The Electric Chair CD and my favorite tunes were: Devil, Devil; Belle Gunness; Man Of The Clothe; and not on CD, Fucking and Fighting and Bad Bad Woman.
Izzy Cox ……..is an anarchist crooner
she has coined the style Voodoobilly
Jazz as her own;
Influenced by old movie soundtracks,
Old time bar room blues and country singers.
Her lyrics are like diary entries..
Stories of serial killers, buckaroo cowboys,
snake handlers and sports of nature .
She had a unusual childhood, for the
formative years of her life she would
live part of her years in rural texas, and
then in french canadian montreal.
Throughout her moving around she was
part of a religious organization where
she played in marching bands.
At the age of twelve she found
the traveling bug, she lived and worked
in horse racing tracks, traveled with circuses
and took part of many early punk rock mosh pits..
All by the age of sixteen..
At sixteen she released her
first two tape track recordings..
while she was locked up in
young juvenile delinquent
And has never turned back..
Till she was 27 years she was involved with a
leading and progressive musical movement
in montreal putting out 10 records and
playing 4-6 night a week… and her peers consisted of ..Godspeed! you black..,
Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Arcade of fire,
The Dears, The unicorns, the stars,
ashtray hearts ..basically the top 20
of independent music today..
After a 15 year career in the East Coast
She caught a Greyhound to Hollywood
At a backyard vegan barbeque hootenanny in
silverlake, she met guitar player Billy Pitman, who, up to
that time had played with pretty much everybody he would
want to (Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Janis
Martin, Gatemouth Brown, LouAnn Barton, Billy Gibbons,
Brian from KIX, Rev. Horton Heat, Eric Clapton,
and the list goes on)except for Izzy after
seeing her solo set.
and has opened up for and counts among her peers
Hank 3, Joe buck,Bob Wayne, Southern Culture on the skids,
Wayne Hancock, Jr Brown,Jack White, Candye Kane,
Big Sandy and the Fly Rite boys,Devil Doll and
Soda and his million piece band,The Jim Rose Circus,
and counts among her fans Todd the Surfer,
Quentin Tarantino, Gene Autry and
Rick Rubin who apparently dug her
stripped down sound from live
appearances on college radio stations.
She has dedicated her life to touring
& playing music & writing songs about her
experiences…now she resides
in Austin ,Texas
and would like to play
your musical venue, house party, death march etc…. And here as a few words from Izzy Cox.. “Some people have cars, some people have houses
hell some folks are married…but thats all the same
to me as long I have my guitar and my songs…”
