    New Website Launch: www.bevzizzy.com

    December 6, 2014

    For the past three weeks, I have been buried in my basement studio - otherwise dubbed the "troll hole" – working on a project that has been on my "to-do" list for 5 years, ever since my last website builder left town. 500 hours later - okay, maybe only 200 - I am very happy to say my website has been completely rebuilt by my very own, feeling slightly smarter, self. PLEASE check it out at bevzizzy.com and feel free to contact me if something does not work quite right – cause I can fix it all by myself —  feeling delighted.

  • PAGO Grannies Benefit Concert

    PAGO Grannies Benefit Concert

    November 11, 2014

    The PAGO Grannies will host a benefit concert on Sunday, October 2, 2014 at Char's Landing, featuring Bev Zizzy.

    Zizzy is a powerful singer/songwriter who is dedicated to the power of giving. Her original CD, titled Woman in Black, combined with her community work, earned her the 2009 Regina YWCA Woman of Distinction in the Arts Award.

    Her performance history includes opening for Blues Hall of Fame Artist John Hammond, as well as sharing the stage with Colin James.  

    The PAGO Grannies are excited about the concert, which will raise local awareness about their group and the wonderful work being achieved by the Stephen Lewis Foundation with the grandmothers in Sub-Saharan Africa.

    "I have a special place in my heart for the Stephen Lewis Foundation, and its affiliated Grandmothers for Grandmothers (G4G) Chapters," Zizzy said. "Since its inception, I have fundraised extensively with the Regina Chapter G4G, including co-ordinating a major music event in 2009 (featuring Little Miss Higgins) that was recorded by CBC, and performing recently at their annual Benefit Dinner last May. When my active PAGO Granny member sister-in-law heard I was going to be in town, well, the rest is history."

    Zizzy will perform on Sunday, October 2 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Discography

  • Standing on a Platform of Kindness

    Various Artists

    June 2016

    Bev’s fourth album features original compositions inspired by her travel and life experiences, all of which have the common thread of kindness. Her honest, autobiographical songs touch upon life’s challenges of loss and struggle, but always there is the underlying current of staying positive and seeking the better story. Her smoky vocal delivery is intense and compelling, her heartfelt, insightful stories memorable and inspiring. From the onset, Bev knew she wanted to draw from the very talented pool of artists in Saskatchewan, resulting in an album that boasts thirteen musicians, and a total of twenty different instruments.  Recorded at: Studio One, Regina. Produced by: Christopher Notenboom.
