Songwriter Izzy Frances has placed herself firmly on the radar as one of the most exciting up and coming songwriters in the UK.
Since releasing her first single ‘You Lost The War’, she’s picked up support from BBC Introducing, Impose Magazine and a number of key Spotify playlists taking her to over 10k streams in her first month.
Performing from a young age, Izzy started by singing and soon taught herself piano out of a passion for performance. Her songwriting life started in her teens when she wrote her first piece of music. She soon found a therapeutic quality to writing music that came from putting life experiences to music, though her inspiration often comes from a number of different sources.
“I’ve felt strongly about things that have happened in the books I’ve read or things that have happened in my friends / families lives and often then the songs just kind of pour out.”
Still in the early stages of her songwriting journey, Izzy’s hard work and undeniable raw talent is beginning to bear fruit. Her new single ‘You Lost The War’ has been picked up by BBC Introducing, who invited Izzy to their studio for an interview and performance. She’s also picked up live shows at London institutions The Bedford and Spice of Life.
She’s now returning with her second single ‘Safety’ which reinforces her honest songwriting style and undeniable talent. An emotional piece of piano-led pop, it’s a dreamy new single that packs a songwriting maturity beyond Izzy’s years. On the new single she states:
“Safety is about stripping bare and exposing your soul in order to fully love. We’re often so afraid of failure, ridicule or rejection that we feel a need to hide who we really are and to pretend the darker parts of us don’t exist. But expressing these parts of ourselves should be fanning the flames of real love and strengthening that connection, not dampening it down. No fear, no judgement. ‘Treat our love like a gun'”
