Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion: “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
The whole band, in its entirety, creates a luxurious and irresistible sound, displaying great skills and artistic finesse. 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”.
The band’s exciting 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 the UK Blues. They are finalists in two categories in the 2018 UK Blues Awards.
