Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion is a truly independent and original band, at the cutting edge of the British blues scene. The whole band creates a luxurious and irresistible sound, displaying great skills and artistic finesse. Zoe Schwarz’s 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.
The band’s exciting live set is based around rootsy originals, featuring strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves featuring Rob Koral’s electrifying and unmistakable touch and flow on guitar. The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond (organ) and Paul Robinson (drums) 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 in the past five years and have brought a fresh approach and vibrancy to the UK blues scene.
“A great band. Terrific musicians. Very nice indeed” - Paul Jones Rhythm & Blues, BBC radio 2, 2017
