Artist: Zoe Konez
"Zoe Konez - wonderful singer, wonderful songwriter, wonderful guitarist." - BBC Radio 6Music
"A Buoyant, crisp, piano-led return, soft and sweet in all the right places" - Clash Magazine

A musician in the most complete sense, Zoe self-produces her releases. Constructing her songs from start to finish, she works from home, the studio and on the move, taking inspiration from all that's around her.
As if she didn't already have enough on her plate, Zoe regularly writes and performs as part of electronic-indie two-piece CATBEAR. With her bandmate Sarah, the duo have picked up support from Q Magazine, BBC 6 Music and Louder Than War, enhancing their live reputation along the way. Zoe loves collaboration, Perhaps nowhere is this more evident than in her London showcase Stop Look Listen, a platform for London's emerging artists including Eliza and the Bear, Kimberly Anne, Holly Walker and Karima Francis.
In all of her roles within the tapestry of music, Zoe is intent on representing the LGBTQ+ community. Performing and releasing music, Zoe hopes to inspire fellow creatives outside of the canon to be confident and assured in themselves and their work. It's a stance that's not gone unnoticed, with Zoe's latest single The Sweetest Thing Is Love, being supported on Spotify's influential "Out Now" playlist.
Back for 2019 with a collection of brand new tracks to be released over the coming months, Zoe leads with indie-pop gem 'We Got Lost'. It's a track draped in dreamy, psychedelic guitar licks and soft, endearing vocals. On the new track Zoe states:
"I wrote the track in the first couple of days of January, in the quiet, reflective time before things started back for the year. I had changed the strings on my electric guitar and the opening chords were the first I played when I finished, and words fell out. I started recording it in my home studio as I was still writing it. Lyrically the track explores social media and how isolated and pressured we all felt around that, as well as the division and confusion around Brexit"
