Today I’m delighted to feature Zoee for the first time. Zoee is an Australian singer songwriter and her music has been compared to a delightful mix of Rod Stewart, James Blunt, Steve Earle, Dolly Parton & Taylor Swift. It’s been a busy few years for the singer, with a North American tour in 2015 as well as the release of her first studio demo album. And in 2016 she made the move to the other side of the world to land here in the UK (and we’re very grateful she did!).
2018 has been even busier – she headlined at the Mighty Dub Festival in Alnwick, the Spirit of Duncarron Festival, alongside the mighty Saor Patrol and Scottish singer-songwriter John Taylor, and performed at the Millport Country Music Festival taking out 1st place on the Maverick Magazine Emerging Talent showcase and taking to the Main stage to open for Eastenders & Minders, Shane Richie, on the Isle Of Cumbrae.
Today we feature ‘It’s the Weekend’ a song which captures the feelings of that long week at work, and the freedom that the weekend brings. The song name checks Dolly Parton and even sees Zoee rapping in the middle of it – it’s great to see an artist doing something a little different. Zoee’s vocals are fantastic and by the end there’s almost an anthemic feel to it, turn it up and enjoy – I imagine this song is amazing live!
