"Probably the most charismatic performance I've ever seen." - ACCESLINE, IA
"She stormed the main stage playing everything from swinging folk and latin jazz to acoustic funk and sprightly celtic flavoured tunes.Her boundless energy was hard to ignore."
- OTTAWA XPRESS, Canada
"A true artist.She is blessed with the uncanny ablility to uncover the extraorinary beauty in the seemingly ordinary."
- BAY WINDOWS, MA.
Originally from England, Zoë now resides in Provincetown, Cape Cod. She plays jazz, jump jive, latin grooves, swing, international folk, funk originals on anything from the piano to the spoons! She describes her blend of music as WORLDBEAT-VAUDEVILLE.
She was CO-WINNER of the Colorado Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Troubadour award in 2003, NEW FOLK WINNER 2002 at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas and 2001 Falconridge Folk Festival AUDIENCE FAVORITE and now she's getting booked to play many festival main stages with virtuoso jazz recorder player Roxanne Layton (from Mannheim Steamroller). Her latest CD "Small is Tremendous" is on Judy Collins' WILDFLOWER label and she'l be touring with her and Nanci Griffith this summer.
Her music is upbeat, amusing and perfect for all ages. She's part troubadour, storyteller and accomplished musician and has toured internationally, picking up influences along the way. While at once setting listeners off balance with her quirky spin on things she sneaks in simple, potent messages, leaving audiences worn out and inspired.
