Bio:
Izzy Heltai is a folk singer-songwriter from Boston, Massachusetts. Izzy is an artist that concentrates on storytelling with emotional and sonic resonance; he accomplishes what’s at the heart of all successful storytelling-invoking the familiar, while capturing familiarity in a way that is unique, in a way that is specific to Izzy. His work teeters between loss and love, but celebrates how most often it’s both at once. This simultaneity crafts pieces that are at once heartbreaking and joyous. Izzy draws influence from voices such as Carole King, Paul Simon and Dave Van Ronk, to contemporary artists, like Gregory Alan Isakov and Jason Isbell—these contexts inform Izzy’s perspective as a young folk musician on the rise. Izzy currently resides in The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts. He tours continuously around the North-East, routinely filling historic venues such as Club Passim in Cambridge or The Dreamaway Lodge in Becket, MA, usually performing solo, but occasionally with multiple configurations of backing bands, often appearing as part of a duo.
In the summer of 2017, Izzy was a finalist at Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase in Hillsdale, NY and has also performed at Mass MoCa’s acclaimed Freshgrass Folk Festival two years running in both 2016 and 2017.
