Visit Izzy Heltai on the web!
Izzy Heltai is an indie-folk singer-songwriter who puts a unique twist on traditional story-telling. Based out of Northampton, Massachusetts, Izzy’s songs reference specific images while simultaneously addressing broader universal truths, often inspired by the natural beauty of Western Massachusetts.
“A voice that is equal parts gruff, sandpapered scratches, unfiltered and open just enough to let the story out and smooth” says redline roots, Izzy’s songs are unmistakably his own, with a strong emphasis on the nuanced dynamics of his voice. With complex melodies and playful wordplay, Izzy’s work sounds unlike anything you’ve heard before but is still guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
As a solo artist who spends the majority of his time on the road, Izzy’s songs often reflect the joys of a semi nomadic lifestyle – dealing with topics of impermanence, loneliness, love and its many manifestations, and what it means to find “home” outside of a permanent residence.
