Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion

About

Zoë Schwarz' dynamic and commanding vocal delivery is both eclectic and suave at the same time; just like a chameleon, one part Janis Joplin, one Billie Holiday, and one Nina Simone".......in its entirety, the band create a luxurious and irresistible sound, displaying great skills and artistic finesse

Their exciting, energetic live set is based around rootsy originals: strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves featuring Rob's electrifying, and unmistakable touch and flow on guitar. The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ and Paul Robinson-drums (Nina Simone, Van Morrison, The Proclaimers, Paul McCartney to name a few) bring massive musical authority and the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions

Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion have made a considerable impact these last five years, and is one of the band's that have added a fresh approach and vibrancy to Blues in the UK

"Their originality and adventurous spirit gives them every right to be regarded as being in the vanguard of contemporary blues" - Pete Feenstra, Jan 2018 Get Ready to Rock Magazine

"A serious band with unique songs, tight instrumentation, and a powerful woman up front… edgy vocals, and scorching guitar solos." - Blues Blast Magazine, USA 2017

"A great band. Terrific musicians, all four of them, very very nice indeed" - Paul Jones Rhythm & Blues, BBC radio 2, 2017

"Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion is a British band with a powerhouse vocalist, electrifying guitarist, amazing Hammond organist" - Making A Scene USA, 2017

"A whip-crack band… expressive voice… impressive material" - Classic Rock The Blues Magazine, 2016

Words alone cannot express the musical chemistry of this band when they step on stage and the only way to truly experience this is by seeing them live. Having said this, you can get a feel for what's in store, by having a look and listen to a video track of "Way Down In The Caves" at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MQ3XLNCLjqc&feature=youtu.be ............blues-rock has never sounded or looked so good!!
