Bring your dancing shoes!
We're happy to announce that our friend, Dale Ann Bradley, just recorded one of our songs, "Me & The Redbird River", which will be released in January of 2019. And we're beyond stoked that her band, Sister Sadie, was just nominated for the Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album 2019. We're rooting for you, Dale Ann!
The band had a fruitful trip to Orlando, Florida this past fall, showcasing for presenters from all over the world, hearing amazing and soulful Americana music, and hanging out with the Local Honeys! #bigfun
We are proud to feature the students from the Kentucky Center Governor's School for the Arts in our first music video, for the song "Wings of a Dove"! Please let us know what you think, and share it with your friends who might like our music! The video was produced by Oaxacan artist Edus Herdezoje.
We are thrilled to announce that Zoe Speaks was just selected by South Arts to participate in its Performing Arts Discovery Program, for which we'll be traveling to Florida this fall to perform for international presenters from venues in Australia, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Ireland and the UK, sharing some of the history, context, and culture that make our region’s music so rich. Onward and upward! Thanks to the Kentucky Arts Council for nominating us and to all of our friends for supporting us! We can't wait to represent Kentucky overseas!
Hear some of our fave Kentucky tunes along with our new single, Bluebird, on Spotify!
We had a great time filming our first video with Edus Herdezoje! The new music video will be out at the beginning of August....stayed tuned!
We are nearing the release of our new CD--the recording is almost done and we are prepping our crowdfunding campaign and planning our PR strategies! This is the place to come for more news about it all!
We have exciting news to share! When we decided last fall to begin performing again as Zoe Speaks, we knew we were excited, and we knew we had a special musical synergy that we were happy to be exploring again. It felt healing. It felt good. It felt RIGHT. But we never dreamed we'd have so much support from all of you--thanks for all the emails, comments, kind words, and for showing up at venues across the state these past six months.
But we REALLY never dreamed we'd now be getting the chance to work with a nationally-known booking agency, Kosson Talent. We met the founders of the agency, Larry Kosson and Robin Spielberg years ago at a music conference, and they reached out to us recently when they heard we were performing together again. After a series of talks in which we discussed goals, dreams, plans, and what it might look like for us to work together, we are happy to announce that we signed with them last week to represent our performances nationally.
What we are learning about Robin and Larry (and their assistant, Meghan!) is that not only do they run a top-notch agency with the know-how to help us to achieve some of our long-held musical goals, but that they are also wonderful people with whom we share many values and visions. We are proud to be associated with them, and humbled by their belief in our music. And we are SO EXCITED to be getting "out there" again! It really is a dream-come-true!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your support and friendship over the years. We invite you to check out the website of our new agency "home" (and the impressive roster they represent) at the link below.
