Project LIVE

Artist Case Study Strizzy Strauss


Releasing music videos, appearing on Hip-Hop radio shows, and embarking on his own UK tour, Strizzy has been putting in the graft to make it big.

Furthermore, he has supported major Hip-Hop artists GZA, Kalashnikov, Rodney P, Skinney Man, Scrapps, Lord finesse, Diamond D and Pharoahe Monch.

Strizzy has also been busy performing at festivals such as Night of Festivals, Rocked up Hootenanny, Carnaby Street, Wildside Festival, Festival2Funky and The Riverside Festival.

Strizzy Strauss has released his Debut EP “The Art of Summarising Life” in early 2018. This EP has proved popular amongst his army of fans and he has now released his Debut album “Trust the Process”.

Strizzy is a fiercely independent artist whose hard work, innovative ideas and talent has cemented his name as one of Leicester’s finest up and coming new artists.

Rapper Strizzy Strauss took part in Project: LIVE in 2017.

When speaking about the project he notes that his music and artistry were initially raw. He states that Project: LIVE helped to refine his skills, build his confidence, improve his mic technique, and gave him the tools to move forward with his own projects.

Strizzy Strauss comments “the project really helped to sharpen my craft when working with a band.”

He explains that the experience of performing with a live band was new to him and totally different to performing to a backing track. Learning new skills like directing the band has helped him incorporate live aspects into his sets. In turn, this has had an overall impact on how he engages with the process of making music and writing an EP or an Album, and has helped to develop his sound.

Since finishing Project: LIVE, Strizzy has put in the hard work to make a name for himself on the UK rap scene.
