Without question, one of the brightest lights on the American progressive/art rock scene, IZZ melds classic and modern prog influences, strong melodies, and stirring guitar and synthesizer solos into a familiar yet refreshing musical stew. They have consistently delivered their innovative and unique original sound with rising praise for each album released.
IZZ was formed under the musical vision of brothers Tom and John Galgano. In 1996, Tom brought together fellow Manhattanville College classmates, all musically trained, to write, arrange and perform original, adventurous music. IZZ’s lineup includes percussionist (and Blind Brook legend) Greg DiMiceli, Paul Bremner (guitars), Anmarie Byrnes (vocals), Laura Meade (vocals), and Brian Coralian (drums). They have released seven studio albums, including “Ampersand Volume 2” in 2016, and have appeared at many festivals including CalProg (Los Angeles), NEARFest (Bethlehem PA), Terra Incognita (Quebec), and Progtoberfest (Chicago).
