Lady Rizo: Red, White and Indigo

“Soaring, powerhouse vocals”
FacebookTwitterLinkedIn

Following on from the launch of her latest album Indigo in 2017, Lady Rizo lands at the fringe with her show Red, White and Indigo. Opening spectacularly with a twist on The Star-Spangled Banner, Lady Rizo wryly announces that this show has become her international apology show. She’s in a dysfunctional relationship with her homeland, the USA and it’s no thanks to the sebaceous cyst of a man-baby who is currently president.

Sheathed in rhinestones and oozing a potent, salacious glamour Lady Rizo deconstructs her relationship over a martini or two while flirting outrageously with her audience. Songs from Portishead, Leonard Cohen and Donna Summer are seamlessly woven into the texture of her set alongside new tracks, with The Ghost of the Chateau Marmont surely soon to become a cabaret standard.

Her voice is phenomenal. Gin-soaked decadence gives way to soaring, powerhouse vocals that rip through blues, jazz and pop to create a unique, intoxicating style. Known for her sardonic wit as much as her vocals, the artist offers a controversial opinion on everything from Brexit to America’s stance on gun laws, leading to an even darker rendition of Bang Bang than Nancy Sinatra’s.
