From dusting off an old Appelacian dulcimer to sampling the sound of ringing glass bottles, her creativity is as intriguing and diverse as the songs she releases.
Zoe takes inspiration from her musical heroes such as Imogen Heap and Bon Iver, creating layered vocals and honey-like harmonies supported by rich, cinematic swells, with her music resting somewhere between bedroom-pop and indie-folk. Exploring themes like wanderlust in Echo, and social media pressures in We Got Lost, her songs are tinged with a contagious optimism, leaving you feeling encouraged and upbeat. Known for her captivating style of guitar-playing, she has drawn comparisons with Kaki King and Tash Sultana and has been championed by the likes of BBC 6 Music and Clash Magazine and has featured on Spotify’s influential Out Now: Unlike Any Other LGBTQ playlist.
As part of a new wave of artist entrepreneurs, Zoe has forged her own path in the music industry, ensuring she remains free to experience the joy of writing, recording, producing and releasing music on her own creative terms.
Along with best friend Sarah Smith, Zoe is also one half of electronic synth-pop duo CATBEAR.
