Izee’s sound is an energetic blend of pop, with strong R&B influences, all of which seeks to showcase his tremendous vocal range

Izee Maze is an American Pop/R&B singer, songwriter, and record producer out of Chicago who promises to deliver something amazing to music fans across the globe. Born on January 6, 1996, Izee is a first generation American who spent his entire childhood soaking up all of the musical influences of the pop music scene. The impression left on this artistically gifted young man grew into a hunger to leave his own creative mark on the music world. Being the only member of his family to show a precocious musical ability, Izee explains, “once I began learning about music, it was as if a whole new language opened up to me and I could finally communicate clearly”.

Truly making him unique is Izee’s refusal to settle within the confines of one style of music. Izee describes how “every genre has its own flow” and how he works tirelessly to infuse a bit of each into his own unique sound. “What sets me apart is that I stay open minded when it comes to music. What I listen to doesn’t exactly translate into what I write. Instead I take it all in and then create music I am passionate about.” With overwhelming sincerity dripping from his beautiful brown eyes, Izee promises, “I want the world to be a more enjoyable, loving place and I know that I can use my music and my passion to work toward that end.” Izee Maze is truly a unique talent who promises to be one to watch as he carves out his place in music history.

Through his music, Izee pays homage to all of the greats from Prince to Justin Timberlake to, none other than the King himself, Michael Jackson. Izee’s sound is an energetic blend of pop, with strong R&B influences, all of which seeks to showcase his tremendous vocal range. Having received several years of classical vocal training at the Chicago High School for the Arts, Izee credits his hours of singing opera to his astounding vocal stamina.

The year overall has been a real big turning point for Izee in terms of performance and personal accolades from the likes of Common and MC Lyte and countless others in the local/national music scene. So far he’s performed at the Wicker Park Music Festival, the Ghana fest, and toured around the Midwest as well as Southwest. “This year I really wanted to develop my stage presence as well as dancing. I picked up on it really quickly by practicing almost everyday and night with my friends, or an instructor, and at times with  me, myself, and a mirror. It’s really empowering to be comfortable with yourself on stage and to really be yourself. I found a lot of joy in the process. Now I can’t wait to get up there.” Aside from performing, Izee also gained a hand at directing his own music videos and really solidifying a concrete artistic image and brand for himself.

Izee is currently in the process of polishing up his debut album. “I want to make something real. I want to make something that speaks volumes to those who live through the everyday struggles of life in. Like social anxiety or working on something you’re really passionate about in the current political climate. Real life issues that everyone goes through day to day.” This upcoming project will feature a soundscape that consists of pop, R&B, rock/alternative, and electronic music and will not only express real life issues and day to day struggles but also his own story And hardships over the span of his career. “I’ve been in a really terrible headspace the past 2 years trying to balance my work life, school, social life, working on creating more music, and working on self improvement. Writing and putting that into my music helps me release all that tension and makes for something really authentic and real for those that listen to my work as well as myself. It’s all love and understanding. It’s human.” Adding that human touch to the hyper mechanical force that is pop music is what makes Izee Maze truly stand out from the rest. Especially in a Chicago, a city where the current creative scene is reserved, reclusive, and Borderline cut throat at times.
