Zoe Schwarz And Blue Commotion have shot right to the fore of the British jazz and blues scene over the past three years, turning out six highly-acclaimed CDs and garnering a clutch of awards and nominations. They comprise Zoe Schwarz vocals, Rob Koral guitar, Pete Whittaker organ and Paul Robinson drums, and their hot live set is based around a mix of covers and rootsy originals, featuring strong catchy riffs, terrific arrangements and exciting grooves, topped off by Zoe’s yearning, passionate and commanding vocal style.
“Zoe proves once again there is not a better female blues and jazz singer in the UK and probably far beyond.” — Dave Scott, Blues In Britain.
“Schwarz takes all that is good from Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday and makes it uniquely her own.” All About Jazz, USA.
“A whip-crack band, expressive voice, impressive material.” Pete Feenstra, Classic Rock’s The Blues Magazine.
