NEW DISCOVERY: IZZI DUNN



Here we go again. Another blog about me receiving an email from someone about submitting their artist for BLS LOL While, I'm not opposed to being expose to something fresh and new, I am not in anyway a person that scouts out music for BLS. I usually come across an artist that I'm feeling or that I know that I'm feeling and go from there. Even though I have been receiving these emails, I must say some have been good and some mediocre. Now, when I received the email from Jules Gilchrist stating that London,UK artist Izzi Dunn would like to be featured, I was skeptical. Not because of the artist herself, mostly because of the title of her new single Tits and Ass. Pause. Not to mention her sophomore album (haven't heard the first) Cries and Smiles is being released on Idunnit Music (Label name sounds Ghetto), definitely made me think twice about whether I should give the artist's music a listen. However, I must say, I couldn't deny the fact that the music was not what I suspected. It gave me a vibe familiar of Bembe Segue and Mark de Clive-Lowe. According to Izzi's bio, Tits and Ass "expertly and bravely derails the sexism and hypocrisy that many take for granted". Interesting. I also learned that Izzi is a cellist who has played for the likes of Mark Ronson, Gorillaz, Chaka Khan and Soul II Soul which is even more interesting. Izzi Dunn's album Cries and Smiles will be released soon but no specific date has been given. I just say, BLS Fans and Fam, check out the video and stream the music for yourself and let me know what you think. I don't think it's bad at all.

Nice voice, I felt a little like the message got lost in the video; I agree her pedigree is "interesting" ~Jelani

Wow.
I really like this.
Great track and great voice.
The video is tongue-in-cheek, no?

Surely you've heard Izzi Dunn sing on Kaidi Tatham's first album? (I believe he's produced this single, certainly sounds like it)
