IZZY COX IS IN TOWN!
Maybe you missed her shows in San Diego, Anaheim, NoHo and Santa Ana (I caught an intimate performance in Hollywood at Room 5 last Friday) but you still have one last chance to see her on the Sunset Strip at The Cat Club TONIGHT!
I suspect you either “get” what Miss Izzy Cox is doin’ or ya don’t.
I think it’s pretty damn cool the way this gal from Austin TX manages to channel everything from hillbilly to jazz into a stripped down almost frighteningly naked performance.
You’ll have to make up your own mind but I strongly suggest you go see her in person and give yourself the chance to experience this woman’s toughness and vulnerability up close.
“Often referred to as the Murder Ballad Queen, Izzy Cox is definitely a songstress like no other. Her extensive repertoire of songs include such titles as “Bad Bad Woman,” “Electric Chair,” “Devil in Me,” “F*cking n’ Fighting,” “Hoodoo Voodoo Gal,” “Thorazine,” and “Devil, Devil,” among many others, implying that she has dedicated herself to doing wrong the right way. Even more than the sound she has developed, though, it’s her voice that is truly and utterly exceptional. It’s a voice that seems to flow forward through the times, beginning in post-war Jazz Age America and moving onward through the Depression-era Blues of the deep south, and then the ’50s Rockabilly set, all the way up to the here and now.”
