 Zo

Tell us about the origin of your band name, ZOE?

ZOE represents the very essence of life. Everyone is in search of peace, love, happiness, good health, and a strong family. Each band member collectively portrays these attributes. The name ZOE best describes our mission and goal to create an atmosphere where people can release the tension of everyday life, and be rejuvenated to face another day.

How did this new album and overall concept for it come about, and what are your ultimate goals with it?

Prior to recording this album we suffered the lost of our co-founder and guitarist, Ron Segers.  While making this album we suffered another lost when someone who we call our "Spiritual Mother", Kim Flitcraft, passed away. If that wasn't enough during the recording of this album we had band members and our family members suffer illnesses, and even had a major house fire. In spite of all of this, we were still able to finish recording.  No matter what happened we were still able to accomplish what we set out to do.  We believe with God on your side you can't be stopped, that's why the album is titled "Unstoppable".  We hope that with this album we will peak the interests of a wider audience and that it will cause them to say, "Hey who are those Zoe' Cats from out of Philly?"

What do you find to be the most challenging aspect of recording a new album?

Patience. While recording a project you are constantly strategizing on the best time to release the album. This will cause you to rush the process, so remaining patient was the key to including all the creative ideas we had inside of us.

How would you finish this sentence? I dont like to go a day without __________________?

Giving thanks and praise to GOD for bringing together, this multi-talented band of brothers known as ZOE.

f your touring and gigs so far in your career, do any stand out as being particularly memorable or defining moments?

Every gig was great for us and we learned a lot from each one. But the one that stands out the most was our first trip to the Catalina Jazz Festival in Avalon, CA. We had a great time and the audience participation was incredible. That experience let us know where we stood as musicians and encouraged us to always give our all. No matter what!

What would be the most important piece of advice youd impart to a young musician just starting out in the jazz/smooth jazz arena?

We would tell a young musician to stay true to their craft. Always practice and continue to stay up on whats happening in the smooth jazz scene. Finally, welcome constructive criticism. It will help a young musician to grow in this industry.
