ZOE LEWIS hails originally from England but now makes Provincetown, MA her home. She's toured all over the world picking up musical influences and stories, plays anything from the piano to the spoons and is affectionately known as "A BAND IN A BODY!" She's a mixture of swing, acoustic funk, latin jazz and her fast-paced lyrics poke fun at modern society and praise the rambling delights of childhood, secret worlds and wandering love.
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 PUTUMAYO compilation and became #1 in the children's satellite radio charts.
A CURE FOR THE HICCUPS was recorded in England, Austin, Seattle and on Cape Cod and features an incredible mixture of musicians that Lewis has met on her travels: JULIE WOLF (Ani Difranco/Bruce Cockburn/Indigo Girls) on
piano and accordion, PAUL PEARCY (Dixie Chicks) ondrums, Cape Cod favorIte CHANDLER TRAVIS on backing croons, MARC CHENEVERT on clarinet, RUPERT COBB (Live from Abbey Road) on trumpet, ROXANNE LAYTON (Mannheim
Steamroller/Boston Pops) on recorder to name a few. It's her dream band!
Co-produced with KATE WOLF it features a spoonful of 13 new, delicious songs including MINE which was written for a recent documentary on the VAGINA MONOLOGUES (Venus, Priests and Superwomen). Strong jazz and worldbeat grooves flourish in this new, original work.
Zoe has many songwriting accolades and was WINNER of the Colorado Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Troubadour Award in 2003, NEW FOLK WINNER 2002 at the Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas and 2001 Falconridge Folk Festival AUDIENCE FAVORITE. She's toured with JUDY COLLINS, RICHIE HAVENS and NANCI GRIFFITHS.
This is her 5th CD release.
