Opposite – Biffy Clyro Cover

Aloha! NEW COVER. Little Biffy Clyro cover of their song Opposite, which I sing live a lot (like here at Eden Festival).

One of my favourite songs to perform at the moment, always seems to make mum cry which is incredibly sweet, but I didn’t tell you that 😉 All you Team Bestelians A FREE DOWNLOAD of this will be in your inbox NOW, and if you want a free mp3 download of this track come join Team Bestel; it’s easy plus you’ll get all my latest news before anyone else, click here!

Don’t worry about me doing a bunch of covers, new songs that I have penned are on their way soon (saving up and stuff), covers are just fun to do and humans like them. A couple of new songs are part of my set for 2016, so if you’re at any of my gigs this year (including any of the uke extravaganza tour dates in Feb), you’ll hear dem FIRST BEFORE ANYONE ELSE, ohmygosh.

Oh and just to remind you that I’ll be uploading at least one new video a week to YouTube so make sure you’re subscribed to my channel! Anything from covers to rambles to gear reviews to vlogs, it’ll be good, I’m very much enjoying it (any suggestions you want to see me chat/do/sing in my vids, comment below). Check out my last vid, a little tour of the spare room studio, here.

Enjoy the Biff!

Dolly Parton’s Jolene & BBC Radio Scotland

Ta da, here you go, my latest cover of a brilliant song. It’s amazingly written and something I love to perform in my live sets.

With regards to the fancy stuff on my vocals in the vid, absolutely no additional effects were added to the track in the studio. Everything was done in one take using my TC Helicon VoiceTone Harmony G-XT pedal and MP-75 Microphone with D.I. through my beautiful Fishman Loudbox Artist amp. Do love my tech. My babies.

I was also incredibly lucky enough to be invited to play my Jolene cover LIVE on BBC Radio Scotland on The Culture Show with Janice Forsyth.

Was in the studio with Vic Galloway too who was chatting about cover songs

Available only for a week and in the UK, but LISTEN AGAIN on iPlayer by clicking here.

Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013

Wow. Pretty awesome that I was up there. Busy, busy. Although I was playing there on the first weekend so not can’t-walk-down-the-street busy. Met a bloke with really awesome Steampunk type outfit that was handing out flyers for a comedy play which sounded brilliant but sadly we had a train to catch *sad face*

There was also this lady. Ya know those statue people. When you donated money she danced, it was rather hypnotic.

Walking back, another arty-farty lady was drawing on the inside of a shop the sky line of Edinburgh. Which was cool in itself, but what was extra cute was the three children that sat down in front of her on the other side of the glass absolutely captivated.

Would love to go back next year just for the fun of the festival. Although it would be amazing if I were playing at the again… *not a major hint at all*

The Waffle TV lovelies (from Wickerman) found me and we did a quick interview, so the video of that is above. They also kindly filmed a live busking type version of San Francisco which featured this hilarious contraption, a microphone taped to a bass drum mic stand, taped to a stool The Mic-inator 1000.

 

 

 Also bumped into lovely Evie. The little gem who sent me this.

All in all Edinburgh was fun, stayed with some friends, ate some nice food, walked a lot. Basically had my dose of cityness.

Thanks for having me Edin!

P.S I bought spogs/spoggs naturally

Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections

(Here are a couple of songs she sang in her set, the first one, Reading Over Words is brand new.)

Zoë had a great time at The Danny Kyle Open Stage at Celtic Connections last weekend, as did we all. We made some great contacts and as a result she’s been given the opportunity to play at a number of festivals over the coming months. We’ll keep you informed as soon as we’re allowed to let the cat out the bag, so to speak.

This was filmed by our new friends, Joan and Bob. Thanks!

Merry Christmas Everybody

Merry Xmas Everybody - from Zoë

What a fantastic year it’s been for Zoë, so many highlights, so much achieved and so many wonderful people she’s met along the way.

Still recovering from another bout of tonsillitis, she put together this gentle version of Slade’s classic, Merry Christmas Everybody, collected a bunch of photos that represent just some of what’s happened and folk we’ve met and made this little video.

And you can now download a high quality mp3 of this song! Simply complete this form.

We’ve not managed to include everybody and every event, so please accept our apologies if we’ve missed you out. I promise we have not forgotten you. It’s been such a memorable year.

If next year has just a fraction of the excitement of this, it’ll be wonderful.
