ZOË LEWIS is a band in a body! She plays jazz, jump jive, latin grooves, swing, international folk, funk originals on anything from the piano to the spoons! Troubadour/vaudevillian/storyteller/singer-songwriter/piece of work!
Winner of the Colorado Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Troubadour Award in 2003, New Rolk Winner 2002 at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas and 2001 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Audience Favorite and now she's getting booked to play many of the main stages with virtuoso jazz recorder player Roxanne Layton (from Mannheim Steamroller).
Her song "Small is Tremendous" received much commercial success and can be heard on ads for Mini Pringles and TJ MAAX. Another of her songs: "Sheep" was part of a Putamayo compilation and became #1 in the children's satellite radio charts. She's also written the soundtrack for a new documentary on the Vagina Monologues.
Zoe has performed with a whole host of incredible musicians including Julie Wolf (Ani DiFranco, Bruce Cockburn), Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie), Paul Piercy (Dixie Chicks), Freebo (Bonnie Raitt) and has toured with Judy Collins and Nanci Griffith.
Originally from England, she now resides in Provincetown on Cape Cod, MA, where she performs every summer. Her music is upbeat, amusing and perfect for young and old alike. She's traveled all over the globe picking up worldbeat grooves and stories on the way; jumping box cars, riding on freight boats and has even played music with an elephant orchestra in Thailand. She's a mixture of swing, acoustic funk, latin jazz and folk. Her fast-paced lyrics poke fun at modern society and praise the rambling delights of childhood, secret worlds, and wandering love.
"With both sweetness and political astuteness she'll remind you of a younger Michelle Shocked with a British accent."
