Izzy Presley was born and raised in St. Cloud, Minnesota. From a young age, he developed an interest in radio, news writing and interviewing, which eventually led him to becoming the Sports and Music Director at RX Magazine, a sports writer for The Weekly Buzz Newspaper, radio host of Afternoon Drive Time on Rockin 101, and Under the Covers with Izzy Presley.
He moved to Los Angeles, California in 2013 for a change of scenery, but quickly found himself “following the dream”, which manifested as a result of him networking with professionals within the entertainment industry.
It was at this time that he began performing stand-up comedy, then later hosted Soundtrack Live at Lucky Strike Live. He also as launched Another FN Podcast with Izzy Presley in November 2013.
Places where he performed his comedy routines include various clubs around L.A. One unique opportunity came when he opened up for fellow comedian Don Jamieson at Chip Z’nuff’s (Enuff Z’nuff) wedding.
Currently, he hosts Soundtrack Live, which is a weekly organized jam that takes place at Lucky Strike Live in Hollywood on Wednesday nights. It features musicians who’ve shared the stage alongside Alice Cooper, Avril Lavigne, INXS, and Faster Pussycat (to name a few). Soundtrack Live also has seen its share of special appearances by musical icons such as Jackson Browne and Bill Ward.
Another FN Podcast with Izzy Presley features interviews and live in-studio performances from musicians and entertainers. Notable guests have included Adam Corolla (comedian, The Adam Corolla Show), Jeff LaBar (Cinderella), Richie Kotzen (The Winery Dogs), Don Jamieson (VH1’s That Metal Show), Terry Ilous (Great White/XYZ), Riki Rachtman (MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball) as well as various pro-wrestlers and actors from the adult entertainment industry.
He has also began hosting karaoke and other events including Izzy Presley’s Monsters of Rock Cruiser Jam, as well as The Moody Blues Cruise, Cruise to the Edge, The Lebrewski Cruise and Def Leppard’s Hysteria on the High Seas Cruise.
Presley’s relentless ambition also includes his current project where he is working on developing a movie (title TBD), which he described is a World War II love story. Additional details will be made available as his project progresses.
He is also plays in ACK! A Tribute to Ace Frehley alongside Chad Stewart (Faster Pussycat), Johnny Martin (Adler/Tracii Guns) and Barry Pointer (Methods of Mayhem).
His desire to have fun is evident in the jobs and activities that he keeps, as is being kind. In fact, he has every guest that he interviews during Another FN Podcast sign an empty bottle of Jack Daniels, which he then auctions off. He then donates 100% of the proceeds to The SoCal Bulldog Rescue to sponsor a dog.
While Presley’s talents run deep, his life philosophy is rather simple, which is “Have fun, live your life and don’t be a douche”, which is clear to see by his many achievements.
Currently, Presley resides in Los Angeles, California.
