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.

Shiny new song: Long, Distant Relationship

‘Ello guys!

It’s the October half term, so for the next two weeks I’m off school (although I’m revising and have a heap of homework), I’m going to try and get in the spare-room studio and do some recordings, some more covers and stuff…

Anyhoo, on Saturday I finally finished the words to a song that’s riff has been flying round my head for ages (probably driving mum and dad insane LOL), and thought I’d politely drag dad from the hard work that he was doing and help me set up the studio (thank you so much Dad) 😀

So there it is, check it out; Hope you enjoy it and please do tell me what you think!

(Just incase you wondered why I made the odd owl noise at the beginning, it’s not because I’m making a different animal noise at the start of each of my new songs, I was saying ‘Take Two’ LOL)

So yeah, thanks for watching and more exciting stuff is on it’s way 😀

Next New Song – Listen

Performing for The CatStrand Theatre’s 5th Birthday Celebrations, here’s Zoë singing her latest song, Listen. The headline act for this night was The Peatbog Faeries, who were brilliant and Zoë shared support with our friend, Calum Gilligan.

Another one written for her baritone uke, Luna, Zoë says that this her favourite song to perform… at the moment 😉

As usual, we’d love to hear what you think.
