“This is a band of exceptional quality, fronted by the stellar vocals of Zoe Schwarz; you really shouldn’t miss the opportunity to enjoy them.”
– Newbury Times, April 2021
Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion refresh the blues genre with eclectic arrangements, virtuosic playing and vocal prowess. With an exciting live set based around rootsy original songs, strong catchy riffs and exciting grooves, they mix old-school tradition with contemporary flair and sophistication.
Zoe’s dynamic and commanding vocal delivery, her majestic vocal sweep and interpretative ability, is complemented by the unmistakable and inimitable touch and flow of Rob Koral’s guitar and the highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker’s Hammond organ and Paul Robinson’s drums bringing massive musical authority and ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions.
“A different level of class. Zoe’s vocal is powerful, yet vulnerable. Rob, Pete and Paul turned out a masterclass in Schofield-esque sophistication.” – Live review, 100 Club in London
