    • "Zoë, once again proving that there is not a better female blues singer in the UK and probably far beyond."

      David Scott, Blues In Britain, 2015
    • Schwarz & Koral make it all look easy, blues, standard tunes, Billie Holiday-esque ballads all delivered with an expert flair while still possessing the wild hair necessary for true authenticity...

      C.Michael Bailey, AAJ, USA, 2013
    • Schwarz takes all that is good from Janis Joplin and Billie Holiday and makes it uniquely her own

      C.Michael Bailey, AAJ USA, April 2012
    • “Zoe reminds me of Beth Hart”

      Graham Henries, Australian Blues & Roots, May 2017
    • "Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion brought a different level of class to the main stage; lovely fluid guitar from Rob Koral & Zoe's powerful, impassioned vocal”

      Moray Stuart, Blues In Britain, Sept 2016, Ealing Blues Festival
    • Eye catching vocals meet sumptuous guitar

      Guitarist Magazine, 2013
    • "Zoe Schwarz Blue Commotion is a British band with a powerhouse vocalist, electrifying guitarist, amazing Hammond organist”

      Rhetta Akammatsu
    • “Rampaging blues-rock-soul originals ... bad ass bitch of a lead singer ... you want to follow her around the world"
