Izzy Heltai lives with his mom. A lover of “meaningless” flash tattoos because of their limitless nature, Izzy is covered in skulls, snakes, animal heads, and femme silhouettes. He dresses like a sixteen-year old boy. He eats more fruit than the average person and makes really good music. You’ll like it a lot.
Izzy Heltai’s roots grow from the tireless grind of DIY shows. His early, self-booked tours were both extensive and eccentric - the venues including VFW dive bars, coffee shops, and once as the intermission between two sets of a Grateful Dead cover band. It was in this unpredictability that Izzy Heltai found his expansive and prolific voice as an artist - the relentless hustle became an abundant source of inspiration for his curious and observational style of songwriting.
In “Day Plan (5 Songs Written 4 the End of the World)”, he creates moments you could hum to yourself in a moment of introspection or scream off the top of a parking garage at 2am - either would feel like a catharsis. His music is as nimble as it is grounded - walking the seam between confessional lo-fi musings and raucous basement rock. Sonically unpretentious and lyrically relatable, Izzy invites you into his world like a conversation with a best friend over a cigarette on the back porch - the moment of clarity you didn’t know you needed.
