Affectionately known as “a band in a body” Zoë plays vintage jazz and world beat grooves on anything from the piano to the spoons! Originally from the UK, she’s called Provincetown her home for the last 28 years. She's traveled to over 70 countries picking up musical grooves and stories along the way, released ten albums of original material, toured with Judy Collins, the Indigo Girls, Richie Havens, Nanci Griffiths and has even opened for Pat Benetar on the ukulele!
Her “Small is Tremendous” CD was signed to Judy Collins’ Wildflower record label, another song was signed to Putumayo records and became #1 in the satellite radio kids charts for 18 weeks, she has won numerous songwriting awards and her songs have appeared on Broadway, in documentaries, movie soundtracks and in commercials. She created and starred in two musicals; SNAIL ROAD and ACROSS THE POND which were staged in Provincetown to packed houses and she leads a theatrical 1920's SPEAKEASY which has become a big hit with the Cape Cod summer crowds performing prohibition era jazz.
Zoë has played at numerous music festivals, teaches musical workshops, performs on Olivia cruises and takes her show to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico every winter. As much known these days for her storytelling as for her songs, her performances are upbeat and fun, almost circus-like yet poignant and oftentimes political. Zoë is an entertainer from a bygone age.
“Equal parts musician and story teller, this British transplant is blessed with the uncanny ability to uncover the extraordinary beauty in the seemingly ordinary.”
“A gorgeous writer—so evocative, tender and thoughtful. And a mesmerizing performer”
"Lewis’ superb sense of humor that brilliantly shines through in any performance. Like her spiritual folk-music sisters, Christine Lavin and Cheryl Wheeler, she’s a natural-born comedian, both as a song lyricist and with her between-tune patter."
"She stormed the main stage playing everything from swinging folk and latin jazz to acoustic funk and sprightly celtic flavoured tunes. Her boundless energy was hard to ignore."
"An amazing modern day Noel Coward."
"A masterful combination of song, performance and artistry with a contagiously positive attitude and free spirit. Probably one of the most the most charismtic performances I've ever seen."
