Zoe’s current song writing and singing for her own album is unique, and aimed at a mainstream pop market that the strong melody lines naturally lend themselves to. Accompanying herself on guitar and piano, in their rawest form, she never fails to make her audience cry as she carries them with her on a music journey with her songs written from personal experience and struggles that she has faced. Inspired by legends like Billie Holiday, Dusty Springfield, Burt Bacharach, and vintage sounds of the 50’s and 60’s, with a Jazz upbringing, there is a unique and infectious honesty about her songs, and every time Zoe performs she bears her soul without fail.
