Izzy Heltai is a folk singer and songwriter based in Northampton, Massachusetts. As a songwriter, he focuses on telling stories about love, loss, and growth – crafting songs both relatable to his inter-generational audience and specific to his experiences and proclivities as a young folk artist. Izzy was a finalist at @Falcon Ridge Folk Festival’s Grassy Hill Emerging Artist Showcase in Hillsdale, NY, and in 2018 he was named a New Folk Finalist at Kerrville Folk Festival in Kerrville, TX. He has performed at MASS MoCA’s acclaimed FreshGrass Festival for two years running, and his debut EP release in January of 2018 was accompanied by a sold-out release show at the historic Club Passim in Cambridge, MA.
“HE USES A STRAIGHTFORWARD FOLK ROCK MELODY TO DRAW US IN BUT MOURNFUL HARMONIES TO ILLUSTRATE THE BITTERSWEETNESS OF SUCH AN EPHEMERAL MOMENT, THE PRECIPICE OF A DECISION.”
