A graduate of the Conservatory of Music at SUNY Purchase, Vita Izabella's classical/operatic roots can be heard coloring her songwriting sensibilities. A chance encounter gave Vita the opportunity to tour throughout Europe as the harmony singer/background guitarist for the band, Blackmore's Night, founded by the legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore, former guitarist and songwriter for the bands Deep Purple and Rainbow. The duo act, Kristina con Vita, won first place at Harlem's Amateur Night at The Apollo Theater with their original song entitled, “Everything About You.” Vita has showcased her original music at NYC venues such as The Knitting Factory, The Bitter End, The Sidewalk Cafe, Pete's Candy Store, The Lion's Den, Kenny's Castaways, CBGB's Gallery and The Back Fence. She was also one of the featured vocalists for The Cool Papa Bell Band, a blues, jazz, funk inspired rock band based in Brooklyn, NY. Her latest album is a mix of both sweet, plaintive solo acoustic songs and more fully produced collaborations featuring the talents of some of the most creative musicians and producers on the planet.
