Fast Five: Izzy Flynn



When did you begin making music, and did you ever ponder a different career?

I began making music at 7 years old, composing at the piano ‘Roman Soldiers Sailing’ and ‘Raving Santa Claws’! I still think the best way to write music is to follow your childlike spontaneous creativity: a way of writing where it’s important to start with a strong idea, (that you like), but then allow yourself to develop it before you judge and decide its fate!

Yea I love painting/art and nearly went down that route, I still do it now and am hooked to the ‘flo’ of the process, much like with music. There’s something fascinating about painting/drawing people’s faces for me in particular, with the possibility of capturing more than even a photograph could. I used to romanticise about being a painter in Paris.

How would you describe your music?

Dark, Electronic RnB. My music is centred in melody and strongly based around rich harmonies. Layered.

What have you been up to so far and what can we expect over the coming months?

I’ve just released my first single Medicine and am steadily releasing my first set of singles/an EP and a very artistic/ dark music video for the next single ‘Faith’.
You can expect some more tuneful songs and abstract music videos.

If you could duet with anybody who would it be and why?

Too many people to choose just one! But on this occasion i’d say Stevie Wonder, have double piano set up, maybe throw in a gospel backing choir for good measure. I love his voice, his soulfulness, his rhythmic feel, and he seems like a lovely gentleman!

What’s your desert island disc and why would you take this one album?

Miseducation of Lauryn Hill – I have so much time for all of these backing vocals!
