Rizzo has arisen from the Chicago and Los Angeles music scenes as a strikingly dynamic figure and a force destined for greatness. Few can muster the swath of skills that this man has at his disposal. With a sound that pushes the envelope of R&B/Soul music, he pulls from the traditional soul element and blends a gothic and mysterious atmosphere to give the listener a cinematic experience. His influences and comparisons span that of Prince, Maxwell, and urban contemporary Miguel, but make no mistake that Rizzo has his own unique identity. With imagery driven lyrics, spellbindingly sexy groovalicious melodies, and a touch of rock and roll, he can swoon the ladies and drive you crazy.
Rizzo’s debut project “The Dimension EP”, available now on iTunes, Spotify, Beats Music, and more, has garnered critical acclaim from such sites as ThisisRNB.com. The intro “Dimension” kicks off the record with a gentle pulsing piano that builds into an almost genre twisting climax letting you off right at its peak and leaving you gasping for more. The first single ”Red Wine, Skinny Jeans”, was produced at The Sound Cake with Chicago Producer Brando Triantoufilla. The song is the telling of two lovers finding their way through the struggles of the world to be together, making sure that no matter what, they will do what it takes to satisfy one another. The song has that classic soul flavor infused with a modern R&B sound, bringing all the elements together in a tasteful and direct dialogue. The EP continues on with an exciting feature from up and coming Chicago R&B singer Justin Ruff on the track “Movin’ On”. The second collaboration features rising Hip-Hop emcee Milli, on the distinctive and alternative track “Can I?”. Taking center stage is the single “Flush”. Rizzo makes certain to show his brilliance by self-producing the EP and playing almost all of the instruments on the record.
From the studio, to the live stage, Rizzo is the artist that can appeal to many people without losing the focus and energy needed to capture a single objective. This is his moment and his dimension, if you choose to…then enter it.
