The next Milford Blues Night, on Saturday 26 March, hosted by Bob Long, will feature Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion http://www.bluecommotion.com

 

 ‘A dynamic and distinctive, multi award winning British blues band’

 

    Zoë and the band have come right to the fore of the British Blues Scene as a result of an intensely busy, exciting and creative three years.  Their latest live recording 'I'll Be Yours Tonight’ (Jun 2015) is their fourth release in three years.  It follows hard on the heels of the acclaimed studio albums 'Exposed' and 'The Blues Don't Scare Me', both of which generated a series of awards and nominations including Runner-Up for ‘Best Band’ in the 2015 British Blues Awards, plus Runner-Up for Zoë in the 2014 & 2015 British Blues Awards.  

 

"Their exemplary song writing skills coupled with outstanding performance, puts them at the very edge of triumph on the world blues scene." - Ian McKenzie, Blues In The South, UK 2015

 

"Zoë, once again proving that there is not a better female blues singer in the UK and probably far beyond."  Dave Scott, Blues In Britain, June 2015

 

  Their exciting live set is based around the band's rootsy originals; featuring strong catchy riffs, interesting arrangements and exciting grooves, providing the perfect vehicle for Zoë's yearning, passionate and commanding vocal style, and Rob's unmistakable touch and flow on guitar.  The highly accomplished rhythm section of Pete Whittaker-Hammond organ, and Paul Robinson-drums (Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Paul McCartney to name a few) bring massive musical authority with the ability to push the music in unpredictable and exciting directions.

    Zoë has made a considerable impact in a very short space of time and is one of those new artists that have added a fresh approach and vibrancy to the thriving UK blues scene.

 

"A whip-crack band.. expressive voice... impressive material" - Pete Feenstra, Classic Rock's ‘The Blues Magazine’, UK, 2014
