Folk / Roots
Zoe is a contemporary folk/roots artist born of Anglo-Austrian-Greek-Armenian heritage and residing in Manchester. Expect bittersweet, turbulant tales of adventure and intense longing with more than a few tinges of exotic far-flung places along the way.
Zoe Kyoti grew up just east of the spaghetti junction. The first child of a musician and a herbalist or as she liked to think of them – a magician and a witch. In the pram she listened to BB King, Django Reinhardt, Nick Drake & The Doors. At 4 she agreed to go to Ballet lessons on the promise of new shoes, but was devastated to discover they would not be high heeled. The majority of her childhood was spent creating musicals, then bullying and bribing other children into taking part. When she was 7 she cut her first recording; a compilation of nursery rhymes for her baby brother, which she enjoyed far more than him. Her first paid job was as dancer for BRMB Radio’s live shows. Age 15 she started singing in intimate venues with her piano teacher and the rest as they say is a mystery.
