A mash-up of Louisiana grit, Austin soul, and low-down Chicago heat, blues harmonica powerhouse Greg Izor is recognized as one of the important new voices in the blues and harmonica world. With the release of several acclaimed albums, and incendiary live performances, he has established himself as a force to be reckoned with.
Izor’s music is grounded in a deeply rooted traditional sound and shaped by the influence of the harmonica masters, as well as Louisiana blues, southern soul, swamp pop, early jazz, and R&B. His playing is constantly pushing the boundaries- showing the evidence of the records he’s gotten his hands on and the greats he has played with over the years. Izor’s songwriting and playing are not to be missed, described as “a broad musical backdrop covering all kinds of roots American rhythms.”
