Chiara Izzi

Chiara Izzi’s musical path began in her adolescence by learning to play the piano and starting to perform very early. By the age of 17 she had already performed in concerts in Italy and abroad with some of the most influent musicians on the Italian scene playing with them in many and different musical environments. As a result of this numerous experiences she reached a great versatility that made her capable to acquire a vocal mastery of jazz tradition but also a remarkable skill in contemporary styles. This way Chiara has developed a unique sound that allows her to interpret music gaining the musical content from different genres (jazz, pop, Italian songs, mediterrean sounds) blending it and exploring it through a strong personality that unifies all the songs in a very brilliant and mature way of singing, despite her young age. Chiara’s International debut took place at the Montreux Jazz Festival Vocal Competition in 2011, where she was awarded first prize by the living musical legend Quincy Jones
