  • “Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion celebrate their 6th anniversary with the release of ‘The Blues And I Should Have A Party’. It’s been a very fertile and productive time and this is the band’s 5th studio album, again full of potent and diverse original songs; add to this, two ‘live’ albums, and it is obvious that the musical chemistry and drive of songwriters Zoë and Rob will not let the band stagnate for a moment.

    The individual CVs of the four musicians is second to none on the British Music scene.

    Zoë Schwarz Blue Commotion have made a name and reputation for consummate musicianship, stylish delivery, and a deep rooted, rich and diverse musical vocabulary.”
    Paul Jolly, 33 Records
