“Cabaret Superstar” (NY Magazine) Lady Rizo was born to theatrical gypsies on the cold northern beaches of the Pacific Northwest but soon made her way to the Big Apple with a voice that has been likened to a mix of Peggy Lee, Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin.
She exploded on to the New York stage with that voice and stage charisma that continues to win her audiences worldwide. Received with critical raves three years in a row at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, she won the inaugural Time Out London and Soho Theatre Award, and the 2013 London Cabaret Award.
She won a Grammy for a duet with Yo-Yo Ma; has sung and recorded with Moby, and she was MC at New York hotspot The Darby where she has entertained music luminaries like Prince, Beyonce and Jay-Z. As a chanteuse and comedienne Lady Rizo revives the cabaret genre with old school diva imagery and a modern voice. Luscious vocals, irrefutable glamour and piercing wit – come and be seduced by New York’s finest chanteuse.
