Thu, Apr 11th, 7:30pm (doors 7),
Billie Zizi  Classic Soul with a flair

Its the rare mark of an artist so fully devoted to their craft that they develop a voice that is uniquely their own at a young age.

Edmontons Billie Zizi deftly combines the groove of classic soul with a flair for contemporary RnB melody, adding a certain avant-jazz vibe with her guitar forays to create a sound as accessible as it is experimental.

Her second full-length album, 2016s Moon Of Honey, showed a growing artist comfortable with taking sonic risks, while maintaining a shrewd pop sensibility in composition. Cuts like Hold And Console, Sit Down, and Do You Love Me show off Zizis smart melodic sense in both composition and arrangement, while Get By and It Shook Your Faith take those elements and add Zizis willingness to experiment with wild sonic abandon, venturing into textural guitar adventures that never stray far from melody, but nonetheless feel like adventures unto themselves.

Growing up in an artistic and musical family prepared Zizi for the path ahead, having accompanied her father on a number of European trips to immerse themselves among the musical traditions of wandering Romani bands through the continental countryside. Zizi absorbed those lessons, and upon her graduation from Grant MacEwans School of Composition and Performance, set out to make statements on her own as a songwriter. Her early live work included tightly arranged looping and sampled parts that allowed her to build on her pieces live and in the moment. She added a rhythm section in preparation for her first record, 2015s Gun Metal Dress, a more jazz-influenced LP that featured unconventional time signature shifts, more straightforward guitar work, and some classic, scat-inspired vocal work.

Not merely content with artistic repetition, Billie Zizi continues to grow on an adventurous musical path, taking pieces of inspiration in the music she finds along the way, seamlessly blending it as part of her own unique voice.
