Gizzelle – Rock n Roll Soul Queen
50s blues, rhythm and blues, and early 60s soul Artist
I had the most delightful chat with a beautiful soul by the name of Gizzelle, a lady with an incredible voice that stops you in your tracks, with an endearing heart to match.
Gizzelle is a super fav at any vintage event – rock n roll weekender, and people swarm to the stage well in advance for her appearance on stage. A voice of a soul queen, that not many could match frankly, the show is always guaranteed to blow the roof off.
I wish I could say where I first saw Gizzelle, maybe Vegas, maybe the UK, I never really know. I do know I am one of the 1st at that stage to witness her blessed voice.
Gizzelle is of course backed up by such talented musicians – Robert Greenig – Drums, Victor Mendez – Piano, Alex Vargas – Bass, Vocals, Takao Inoue – Saxophone.
Gizzelle grew up a singing dancing child, with a cassette player in tow, inspired by her mother’s love of great female artists, soaked in the music her mother played, Patsy Cline, Aretha franklin, Barbara Streisand, and Ruth Brown.
Singing since the age of 6, also appearing in her school choir and performing a staring role in the Disney classic – Beauty and the Beast playing Belle, this all leading to the dazzling singer she is today. As a teen Gizzelle signed up with Wild Records, with inspirational help from her Uncle Eddie and of course her mother, who at the beginning gently encouraged her on stage – that was the beginning and since then.
Touring everywhere and performing with top billing artists around the globe, including Janice Martin and her all time idol – Ruth Brown, who she in fact performed with twice.
Gizzelle has gone on to release albums & singles, which can be found at Wild records wildrecordsusa.com/gizzelle You can also purchase Mp3 downloads of Gizelle’s incredible recordings and her latest 45 record Deep Dark Secret.
