Her song “Small is Tremendous” received much commercial success and can be heard on ads for MINI PRINGLES and TJ MAXX. Another of her songs, “Sheep”, was part of a PUTUMAYO compilation and became #1 in the children's satellite radio charts. She's also written the soundtrack for a documentary on the “Vagina Monologues” and scores for several other films.
Originally from England, she now resides in Provincetown on Cape Cod, MA, where she performs every summer. Her music is upbeat, amusing and perfect for young and old alike. She's traveled around the globe to over 70 countries, picking up world-beat music and stories on the way; jumping box cars, riding on freight boats and has even played music with an elephant orchestra in Thailand.

ZOË started studying music (piano) in England at the age of seven in her little village on the south coast of England, Rottingdean. In 1990, she arrived in the United States and began performing originals on guitar, piano, harmonica, ukulele, penny whistle, accordion, and human trumpet and has since then toured extensively, performing at numerous folk clubs, coffee houses, colleges, music festivals and pride marches.
