Student artist creates dark electro hip-hop

A pioneer of her specific brand of dark electro pop, Isabella de Montesquiou’s career is only just beginning to take off.

The Thornton senior, who goes by the stage name of IZZA, started playing the piano when she was 5 years old, with a focus on classical music. Soon after, she realized that it was not her calling but later discovered songwriting in her teenage years and used it as an outlet to express herself.
