Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion

The first Blue Commotion gig in February 2012 was a culmination of a ten-year musical partnership between Zoe Schwarz and guitarist Rob Koral. Through their intense musical journey and compatible desire, they developed a perfect collaboration and empathy, which, when analysed, comes from two completely different starting points. Because of this melting pot of musical diversity, there is a depth and uniqueness to the band's music which is hard to pigeon-hole and categorise. Into the mix comes the sheer virtuosity of each of the band members who are allowed the freedom to express their musical authority, and stamp their own personal magic to the song writing of Zoe and Rob. A testament to this chemistry is the sheer volume of music coming out of the band, and 'Exposed' will be Blue Commotion's third album in two years. Zoe's unique, yearning vocal style is blended with Rob's ability to come up with catchy vibrant riffs and musical arran...
