Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion - http://www.bluecommotion.com - 

Their exciting live set is based around the band's blues based, rootsy originals; featuring strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves, providing the perfect vehicle for Zoe's incomparable, heart wrenching vocals. The distinct and beautiful touch of left handed guitarist Rob Koral adds another unique voice into the mix, as does the brilliant harmonica of the charismatic and zany Si Genaro. The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ (Nigel Price, Theo Travis, Jim Mullen) and Paul Robinson-drums (Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney) bring massive authority with the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions. 'Zoe and her band have reached the point where they cannot be ignored and are poised to make the international breakthrough they deserve.' The Bishop, Blues Matters, 2013 Zoe has made a considerable impact in a very short space of time and is another one of those new artists that have added a fresh approach and vibrancy to the thriving UK blues scene. “Schwarz takes all that is good from Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday and makes it uniquely her own”
 C.Michael Bailey, AllAboutJazz USA Apr2012 'Some of the best blues I've heard come out of Great Britain in decades. As a matter of fact, this group would certainly fit into the category of the "Future Of British Blues.'
Peter Lauro, Blues Editor, Mary4Music.com (USA) 'Zoe’s phrasing, diction and timbre and the confidence and musicianship to step back and allow her super-tight ensemble their own chances to shine, set her apart from the average blues shouter.' Moray Stuart, Blues In Britain, 2013 'Blue Commotion have been lurking waiting to pounce and now it has come. All the band members have as they say ‘paid their dues’ and none more so than Zoe who has developed as a singer in the most remarkable way.' Ian McKenzie, Blues In The South 2013
