Chanteuse and cabaret superstar Lady Rizo soulfully (and saucily) unpacks her love-hate relationship with present-day America. A hippie child turned teenage punk turned trained actor with a big soul voice, Lady Rizo unleashes a soaring and sardonic tribute to that 'very bad boyfriend', her home country. Bejewelled, regally gowned, lipsticked and lashed, the martini-sipping singer-songwriter seeks to reclaim the idea of patriotism, rather than blind nationalism, in a scorching performance of hopeful and heart-stirring original songs and covers of Marvin Gaye, Portishead, Leonard Cohen and more. A provocateur with an electric wit who draws inspiration from Peggy Lee, Edith Piaf and Nina Simone, Lady Rizo has collaborated with Moby, Reggie Watts and Yo-Yo Ma (on Grammy Award-winning album Joy and Peace). Backed by a four-piece band, Lady Rizo’s toweringly tender vocals spread love, liberty and joy, even as she’s sprawled atop a piano scissoring her legs in the air.
