“Zoe I played it last night and just love the original compositions. Festivals are coming your way and you are moving up to the next level. You and Rob are so talented you will get there.” - Dave Scott Blues Matters,
Jason Elliott (Hebden festival and Phoenix fm) "One of things I like about both Katie Bradley and Zoe Schwarz and their bands is that sometimes, when it all kicks off musically, it sounds like they are only barely in control of some manic multi-legged and headed beast, howling, spitting fire and galloping into battle, as they are perched on the top, standing up in the saddle, carrying a big sword and shouting "Yeehaaaaa!!!" That, Ladies and Gentlemen, is how you front a band."
