Izzi Hughes is a Hendersonville, NC native who at the age of nine began playing guitar in the midst of various musical theatre and acting classes at the NC State Theatre. Upon turning twelve, she channeled all of her time and energy into music, taking private lessons in acoustic/electric guitar, voice, and piano. She also joined her music school’s Rock Band Program and for the next three years fronted a local band. Her band was featured on the WLOS (an ABC affiliate) Morning Show and played at a myriad of venues and local benefits including Relay for Life at the NC Agricultural Center and the famous NC Apple Festival on their main downtown stage.
In January of 2015, she went to Nashville TN and recorded two original songs on Music Row with producer and frequent bassist for The Boxmasters, Dave Fowler. After winning Wild Wing Café’s (Asheville, NC) Acoustic Throwdown Competition in March of 2015, Izzi began performing as a solo artist. For the last three years, Izzi has been making the rounds in Western North Carolina’s local music scene at breweries, vineyards, restaurants and more. In August of 2018, Izzi moved to Nashville, TN to pursue a degree in Music Business from the Mike Curb College of Entertainment & Music Business at Belmont University. Izzi’s incredible talent and drive to succeed have shattered many misconceptions about her ability to professionally perform at such a young age.
