The Blues Magazine, issue 22, June 2015, Spotlight On...

Zoe Schwarz. The well-respected vocalist talks about her Blue Commotion team.

Editor Ed Mitchell prints a full A4 colour photo by Richie Brown, and writes from recent correspondence: " WE'VE JUST RELEASED I'll Be Yours Tonight, our fourth album in three year, and in that time we've never had a rehearsal  We run through new songs at sound checks, and to warm up in the studio when we record.  Rob [Koral, guitarist] and I are super rehearsed of course, as we write together, put set lists together, try out new standards and test drive material on our duo gigs (our bread 'n butter). 

W cherry-picked Pete Whittaker [organ] and Paul Robinson [drums] for what they bring to the band. The latter has played with Paul McCartney and toured with Van Morrison and was Nina Simone's drummer for the last 19 years of her life.

Rob, Pete and Paul deserve far more exposure and praise for what they do.  It may sound cheesy but I really do hand to pinch myself when I am on stage with them.
