BIO
------------

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 was bit by
the traveling bug. She lived and worked
at horse racing tracks, traveled with circuses
and took part in many early punk rock mosh pits..
***************
All by the age of sixteen..
At sixteen she released her
first two-track analog recordings,
while she was locked up in
various juvenile delinquent
reformatories.
And she has never turned back..
'Til 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,
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,
California...
*************
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 could
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.
****************
She has played support for and counts among her peers
the Flametrick Subs, the Goddam Gallows, Viva La Vox, Honky
Hillbilly Casino, Pocky Lafarge, Ghostwriter, One-Eyed-Doll,
Charlie Louvin, Wanda Jackson , Hank 3, Jack White, Bob Wayne, Southern Culture on the Skids,Wayne Hancock, Jr. Brown, Candye Kane,Big Sandy and his Fly-Rite boys, Devil Doll,
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 heard on college radio stations.
****************

She has dedicated her life to touring, playing music, and
writing songs about her experiences.
She currently resides in Austin ,Texas.
