Izia Higelin was born in Paris, France on 24 September 1990. When she was 13, Higelin started to take an interest in rock bands such as Nirvana and Led Zeppelin. At this time, she wrote her first song, titled “Hey Bitch”, which later featured on her debut album. A year later, she met Caravan Palace bassist Antoine Toutsou through her parents and the pair played their first live show in 2004. Six months later, her backing group was expanded to three people when Higelin and Toutsou were joined by Sébastien Hoog and Vincent Polycarpe. On 8 June 2009, her eponymous debut studio album, Izia was released in France. In some reviews, the album garnered comparisons to Janis Joplin. In May 2011 the band recorded their second album called, "So Much Trouble". This album aims to settle with this debut offering a more grunge and yet melodic, thanks particular to better control the voice of the singer.
