**** Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion ****

ZoŽ 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 CD, a live album 'I'll Be Yours Tonight? (Jun 2105) 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 Zo 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

"ZoŽ, 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 Zo'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.

Zo 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

"Incendiary vocal, guitar and organ work"
Ed Mitchell, The Blues Magazine, 2015

"Exceptional original songs"
Blues in Britain, 2013

"Schwarz & Koral make it all look easy, blues, swinging tunes, bossas,
Billie Holiday-esque ballads all delivered with an expert flair while still
possessing the wild hair necessary for true authenticity..."

C.Michael Bailey, All About Jazz, USA, 2013

**** Andy Broad ****

Andy Broad's professional career has spanned nearly 30 years, and in that
time he has taken his music arround the world to San Fransisco, France,
Belgium and Germany and ofcourse extensively toured the UK. Combining the
rootsy delta based blues of Robert Johnson, Son House etc al with elements
of "world music" and more contemporary blues influences such as Robert Cray
and Luthor Allison, he creates a lively and vibrant sound.

His latest two CDs the solo "Every Penny Of The Deal" and the instrumental
based "Cockeral Blues" have both recieved good reviews and extensive

"clever and accomplished guitar work embellished with a resonant clear vocal
... some fine slide"
Bob Chaffey - Blues In Britain Magazine

"some superb picking and stupendous vocals"
Russell Hill - Maverick Magazine

"... a rollicking bit of slide ... "
