Izzy Cox is an anarchist crooner she has coined the style Voodoobilly Jazz as her own! She is currently in Melbourne town playing with Kim Volkman (slappin' his stand up bass) and Billy Pommer Jr (pounding out the beats).
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 of 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.
At sixteen she released her first two tape track recordings..while she was locked up in young juvenile delinquent Institutions. And has never turned back. Until 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 Emperor, Rufus and Martha Wainwright, Arcade Of Fire, The Dears, The Unicorns, The Stars, Ashtray Hearts and so on.
After a 15 year career in the East Coast, Izzy caught a Greyhound to Hollywood California. At a backyard vegan barbeque hootenanny in Silverlake, she met guitar player Billy Pitman, who, up tothat time had played with pretty much everybody he would want to (Jimmie Vaughan, Hubert Sumlin, Janis Martin, Gatemouth Brown, LouAnn Barton, Billy Gibbons (ZZ-Top), Brian from KIX, Reverand Horton Heat, Eric Clapton and the list goes on) except for Izzy after seeing her solo set.
Izzy 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 that's all the same
to me as long I have my guitar and my songs..."
OOOOOOOOOOv Izzy Cox
