“Something a bit special is going on when this artist…takes the stage...a classy, poised singer”
Zoe Francis started singing jazz while living and working in New York, and soon became a regular fixture on the scene, working with many musicians including Harry Allen, Warren Vache, Joe Cohn and Chris Flory. Her first album “Looking for a Boy” was released to significant acclaim, while her second, “The Very Thought of You”, recorded live at the 606 in 2014, came out to similar plaudits and her most recent recording “Blue Town” once again showcases her beautiful voice as well as her exquisite choice of material. With her love of the great songwriters of the 30’s and 40’s including Strayhorn, Mercer, Arlen and Van Heusen, Zoe’s knack for capturing the bittersweet, poignant nature of these songs brings them to life and elevates her performances to the truly exceptional. And if all that wasn't enough the band today will feature one of the UK's most iconic jazz musicians, guitarist Jim Mullen.
