Zoee & the Band
The chart-topping and multi-award winning Australian-born singer/songwriter (actress & model) Zoee is one of the most exciting Alternative Country/Americana/Pop phenomena to hit the UK country music scene. Zoee has touched the hearts of thousands while she’s travelled the world performing from the US to the UK. Her ever-present storytelling & uplifting songwriting style has been compared to world-class artists such as Rod Stewart, James Blunt, Steve Earle, Dolly Parton & Taylor Swift. Dusted with underlying messages & entwined with personal narratives, Zoee keeps her sound grounded & raw, much like the music of the 1970’s & 1980’s. Elegant. Powerful. Individual.
Zoee, the Australian native singer-songwriter, crossed the Oceanic in 2014, for her first tour in North America, recorded and released her first studio demo album in 2015 & moved across the world to the UK in 2016 to pursue her passion for music, where she is currently stands at No#1 on the ReverbNation and Scottish New Music Global Charts and is working on collaborations with many international award-winning artists, including Australian Country Music icon Graeme Connors (John Denver & Jon English) and American Singer-songwriter Norman Saleet (Air Supply, Art Garfunkel, Barry Gibb).
HERE & NOW - 2019
After the success of her singles last year, 2019 has started off with Zoee working on her first official EP (which is a documentation of her adventures; following the monstrous move from Australia, around the world) and a lineup of impressive festival performances to be announced, plus continuing her work in film/TV music in the UK & diving into US & Sweden with collaborations and upcoming projects with the BBC and the mighty country music Maverick Magazine. . .
AT A GLANCE - 2018
2018 was a year of growth for Zoee from performing all across the United Kingdom and in front of thousands to releasing her first official single, "It's the Weekend", "Kiss To Remember" and "This Time" (which hit the Scottish New Music chart at No#15) and the success of her Official Film Soundtrack "Town" which topped the Scottish New Music All-Genre Global Chart and won two awards being the "Best Film Soundtrack" and "Best Original Song in Scotland" at the Infinitime Music Awards.
In Oct 2018 Zoee was commissioned to produce the main soundtrack for the upcoming movie, "19 Willock Place" which is a Scottish Government and BBC backed film in planning stages for global release through Cineworld during 2019. Prior to the film premiere in December the song which was released in September went straight to No#1 on the Scottish New Music All-Genre Chart.

AT A GLANCE - 2017
In July '17 Zoee graced the BBC Introducing stage at the Brentwood Festival (ft. Headliners Status Quo, Midge Ure, Go West, Missing Andy & Jocelyn Brown), in August she wrapped her month-long stint of performances at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival & by December that year she would earn her place in the Open Mic UK Songwriting showcase where she would come 3rd out of thousands of participants.
With her intimate acoustic gigging around the UK & EU (ft. just herself and her band - 2 guitars and a cajon), Zoee is definitely a talent worth watching out for.
